The Thief on the Cross (Luke 23:39-44)

by Bro. John Morgan Owens (preached 12/26/21)

Sometimes in the religious world you will hear about a “bad thief” and a “good thief.” In reality, there were only two “bad” thieves crucified with Jesus – we are told in Matthew 27 that BOTH of them were mocking and cursing Jesus, just like all the rest! And yet one of those “bad” thieves began to defend Jesus, and even called Him “Lord.” So what happened to this thief? What caused him to go from mocking Jesus a moment before, to worshiping Him and calling Him “Lord” in the next minute? Listen as Bro. John Morgan Owens tells us about the new birth, and what it did for this malefactor on the cross.
