Luke 23:39-43 (NIV)

"39 One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: 'Aren't you the Christ? Save yourself and us!'

40 But the other criminal rebuked him. 'Don't you fear God,' he said, 'since you are under the same sentence? 41 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.'

42 Then he said, 'Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.'

43 Jesus answered him, 'I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.'"
