I had a co worker this morning ask me a question about Luke 23:43. This if from Jesus dealing with the thief on the cross. The verse says Now I have always believed that this thief went to heaven with Jesus that day. I do not want to debate whether 'paradise' is the same as heaven or some other nice place. To me that question is settled in II Cor 12:4. If you want to debate that start your own thread. The question asked of me this morning deals with Jesus' statement. Was Jesus saying, "You will be with me." Or was He asking, "Shall you be with me?" It comes down to a question of punctuation. Was Jesus asking a question or making a statement. We all know that punctuation was added to scripture after the fact. Has anyone studied this? "Shalt thou?" And "thou shalt." do not necessarily mean the same thing. What do you think?
