“And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.”
King James Version (KJV)
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.
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.
