Old Man

Resource Toolbox

A term used in the N.T. to express a moral condition or order of man which has been superseded for the Christian by the introduction of the new man. "Our old man has been crucified with him [Christ], that the body of sin might be annulled, that we should no longer serve sin." Romans 6:6 . The old man is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and the Christian is appealed to as having put off the old man. Ephesians 4:22 ; Colossians 3:9 . If he has learnt this in his soul, "as the truth is in Jesus," he has to maintain consistency with it, and to act in the character of the new man, which he has put on, and in which Christians are one in Christ Jesus.
