Wesley's Notes for Luke 23:43


23:43 In paradise - The place where the souls of the righteous remain from death till the resurrection. As if he had said, I will not only remember thee then, but this very day.


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 23:43

  • Steve Hislop for verse 43
    Many times we use the word "day " and even "today " not in a strictly literal 24-hour period of time sense, so I think it is beside the point to argue this my sense is that what Jesus meant by Today was immediately
  • Truth is independent of opinion and by its definition, it is intolerant of error. Notice the way the malefactor; Lord remember me when you come in your kingdom, which shows that he(thief) understood how the righteous are saved according to Jesus teachings. So righteous people are remembered at the Second Advent, not at the point of their death. It is therefore good to suit an individual's opinion as many do. If the scripture is read without a prayerful and humble heart, the simplest passage can be misunderstood. I thank of you people who have decided to carefully search the scriptures in prayer and humility. 2 Peter 3:15-18.
  • Iris Dodson for verse 43
    Has any research been done on the punctuatiohn of this verse. Jesus did appear later to many people? Also, did Jesus go to hades which some say is Hell?
  • Michael for verse 43
    The original Bible had no punctuation. It very well could be that the verse is actually the following:

    Luke 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee to day, shalt thou be with me in paradise.
  • Raymond Monson for verse 43
    I am wondering what the word like "to day" in Luke 23:43. It means "today" or last day or this day.

    Greek word σήμερον Greek pronoun “semeron” means on last day for Christ's 2nd coming?
