Jesus and the Condemned

August 8, 2021

Luke 23:32–43 ESV “23:32 ¶ Two others, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death with him.

23:33 And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on his right and one on his left.

23:34 And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” And they cast lots to divide his garments.

23:35 And the people stood by, watching, but the rulers scoffed at him, saying, “He saved others; let him save himself, if he is the Christ of God, his Chosen One!”

23:36 The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him sour wine

23:37 and saying, “If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!”

23:38 There was also an inscription over him, “This is the King of the Jews.”

23:39 ¶ One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, “Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!”

23:40 But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?

23:41 And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.”

23:42 And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”

23:43 And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.””

1 Peter 3:15 ESV “but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,”

Hebrews 6:19 We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain,
