"One of the criminals who were hanged there kept deriding him and saying, 'Are you
not the Messiah? Save yourself and us!' But the other rebuked him, saying, 'Do you not
fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed have been
condemned justly, for we are getting what we deserve for our deeds, but this man
has done nothing wrong.' Then he said, 'Jesus, remember me when you come into your
kingdom.' He replied, 'Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.'" (Luke 23:39-43).
