    Hi to all , and what did the thief on the cross really saying ?

    #1 , First , we know he believed in ONE God , for he did not ask the other malefactors , " Dost not thou fear the gods ( Luke 23:40 )

    #2 , Second , he believed in the BODILY Resurrection of the dead , for he spoke to the Lord about " me " and " Thou " and their life after death .

    #3 , Third , his words " remember me when THOU COMEST into thy Kingdom ( the Millennial Kingdom , Luke 23:42 ) prove he believed in the Second Coming . Since the Lord had not spoken on the cross about it , to me indicates that he was familiar with Jesus's teachings .

    #4 , Fourth , he knew that the Lord would some day have a Kingdom .
