Romans 6:17 - Cast into a New Mold Bookmark

That form of doctrine - Τυπον διδαχης; here Christianity is represented under the notion of a mold, or die, into which they were cast, and from which they took the impression of its excellence.  The figure upon this die is the image of God, righteousness and true holiness, which was stamped on their souls in believing the Gospel and receiving the Holy Ghost.  The words εις ο?ν παρεδοθητε τυπον refer to the melting of metal; which, when it is liquefied, is cast into the mold, that it may receive the impression that is sunk or cut in the mold; and therefore the words may be literally translated, into which mold of doctrine ye have been cast.  They were melted down under the preaching of the word, and then were capable of receiving the stamp of its purity. (Dr. Adam Clarke)
But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, (NASB)
But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. (KJV)
Thank God! Once you were slaves of sin, but now you wholeheartedly obey this teaching we have given you. (NLT)
But thanks be to God that though you were slaves to sin, you obeyed from the heart that pattern of teaching you were entrusted to, (NET)
2Ti 1:13 Hold on to the pattern of wholesome teaching you learned from me—a pattern shaped by the faith and love that you have in Christ Jesus. (NLT)

Thankfulness seems a understatement for having been delivered from the slavery of sin.  But here we see the supremacy of the Gospel that casts us into its mold where the likeness of Christ is delivered into our being so that we can see His pattern upon us and can wholeheartedly obey, (listen under, conform, heed, hearken) as newly created righteous vessels.  A new nature gives sustenance to a new life lived in union with Christ Jesus.

τυπος here, is used by the Jewish writers for a form, copy, pattern, or exemplar of any sort of writings This form of doctrine is ????, "a Cabala", but not like that of the Jews' oral law, or form of traditions, handed down, as they say, from one man, and set of men, to another; but this is delivered from the Father to Christ, from Christ to his apostles, and by them to the saints; and "into which they were delivered", as it may be rendered, as into a mould; and so received the impression of it, and were evangelized by it: so such are who have a spirit of Gospel liberty, in opposition to a spirit of bondage; who live by faith on Christ, and not by the works of the law; who derive their comfort from him, and not from anything done by them; whose repentance and obedience are influenced by the grace of God, and who are zealous of good works, without any dependence on them.
