Robert Dallmann (robert_dallmann) | 75 comments Many think the repentant thief on the cross next to Jesus had no time to "live for Jesus" , and he certainly did not have a lot of time. BUT , when a close examination of his salvation is made... it is AMAZING what he actually did "see" and "recognize" and "do".

Below is a link to a brief (one page, double-sided, tri-fold) PDF Bible study of this event:

Robert Dallmann (robert_dallmann) | 75 comments There is a LOT contained in this short passage... thief repents
...he rebukes the unrepentant thief
...he recognizes his own guilt (getting what he deserves)
...he states that Jesus is without guilt (done nothing wrong)
...he acknowledges that Jesus is God
...he tries to evangelize the other thief
...he acknowledges that Jesus is a King
...he knows that crucifixion is not the end for Jesus (when you come into your Kingdom)
...he essentially asks Jesus for forgiveness (remember me when you come into your Kingdom)
