People's Bible Notes for Luke 23:43


Lu 23:43 To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. On the cross together, the evil doer, who believed in the Crucified One, shall be with Christ in paradise. He was no doubt a Jew, perhaps knew somewhat of Christ before, and was saved by the power and word of Christ before, and was saved by the power and word of Christ, as he saved the woman that was a sinner (Lu 7:48). So he still saves. If we comply with the conditions of his word, as preached by the apostles, in the Gospel of the Risen Savior, we will be saved.

Discussion for Luke 23

    Pilate knew that Jesus was innocent but he let his fear of men control his actions and this led to him cooperating in the murder of Jesus Christ.
  • Gail Green
    Jesus Christ gave up his life for us when he died on the cross for us sinners
    We now as Christians have to carry our cross in Jesus name.

    Um Michael what are you talking about? The angles didn 't just simply retrieve Jesus 's dead lifeless body. Christ spirit left his body when he died on the cross then that spirit went back into his body 3 days later. That is a resurrection... a once dead body brought back to life. He was seen walking and preaching and even eating in that body after he resurrected then I think 40 days layer he ascended into heaven. How is that like a parent getting their child 's dead body to bury at home? And btw Christ is king.

    How Great is our Lord Jesus Christ.....Let us not put into nothing What Jesus Did on the Cross to Cleanse us from all our Sins.Love our neighbours just like ourselves, Share to others the Salvation we have in Christ Jesus...God Bless...
  • Domnic Dsouza for verse 31
    specially these last 25 30 years i see and feel the dryness in everything, there was a time when people were concerned and cared for others, But now i see the third floor partying while ground floor someone has expired. there was a time when the wife would mourn a husbands death for a year and more, but now you see her in someone else s arms within a month or two. there was a time when parents were cared till the last breath, but now they are sent to the old age home on the first sign of sickness is this is not the dry wood situation that Christ was talking about.
