    what does jesus mean when he used the word paradise in luke 23:43
  • Kim - in Reply on Luke 23:43
    Jesus is referring to the earth when it is restored back to the paradise that God always meant it to be. At Matt 6:10, n our model prayer it says "Let ur Kingdom come, Let ur will b done, as n heaven also on earth. He couldnt have meant heaven cuz at John 3:5 Jesus said unless anyone is born from water n spirit he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. And he couldnt have meant that literal day, Jesus was n the tomb for 3 days n didnt actually go to heaven till 40 some days later

    The Scripture Luke 23:43

    God is everywhere at all times so why are folks questioning ... Today in Paradise?

    Nothing is to hard and nothing is impossible with God. Stop limiting God. The Trinity has no limits like mankind do

    God is doing pretty good unfolding the mystery. His plan is right on schedule.

    PD, Kim and Audrey,

    "And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise."Luk 23:43

    On the cross Jesus' physical body lost life. He died. But His Spirit and our spirits when we die, live on.

    Paul revealed to us:

    "Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord."2Co 5:6-8

    In the New Testament, paradise is mentioned three times. Here it refers to the abode of the righteous dead.
