Wesley's Notes for Luke 23:39

23:39 And one of the malefactors reviled him - St. Matthew says, the robbers: St. Mark, they that were crucified with him, reviled him. Either therefore St. Matthew and Mark put the plural for the singular (as the best authors sometimes do) or both reviled him at the first, till one of them felt the overwhelming power of saving grace.

 

People's Bible Notes for Luke 23:39

Lu 23:39 One of the malefactors. Matthew and Mark represent the malefactors as mocking him (Mt 27:44 Mr 15:32). It may be that only one spoke, apparently for both, or that both spoke at first, and then one was silent. If thou be the Christ. "Art not thou the Christ"? (Revised Version). That Jesus did not save himself and his companions in suffering seemed to this malefactor to prove that this was not the Christ.
