What would you do in your last moments on Earth? Likely we will never truly know, because we don’t know when that moment of reckoning is coming. In this video, the event of Jesus’ crucifixion is told, but this time the story focuses on one of the two others crucified that same day.
Jesus was not the only one crucified that day. On two other crosses, on either side of him, two others were nailed to crosses. We do not know their names, or their stories. They are identified in the Bible only as “criminals” (Greek kakourgos). We do not know what their crimes were, but usually they were guilty of what were considered the most heinous crimes, like being terrorists or military deserters or rapists. Jesus, however, was guilty of none of these crimes, and even the supposed crimes for which he was being crucified were fabricated.
One of the criminals mocked Jesus. But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.” (Luke 23:39-40)
What is your reaction to who Jesus is and what Jesus did for us? You may not have committed crimes as bad as these criminals, but like them, your reaction to Jesus has eternal implications. What will you choose? To mock, or to embrace?
