In Luke 23 of the Bible, it tells the story of Jesus being crucified alongside two criminals, one on his right and the other on his left. These two thieves were also being punished for their crimes. As Jesus hung on the cross, one of the criminals mocked and insulted him, saying that if he truly was the Messiah, he should save himself and them. However, the other criminal rebuked his companion, acknowledging that they were being justly punished for their crimes, but Jesus was innocent and did not deserve to die. This criminal then turned to Jesus and said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom."

In response, Jesus spoke words of incredible grace and compassion, saying, "Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise." Even in the midst of his own suffering and imminent death, Jesus extended forgiveness and salvation to this repentant criminal. It is a powerful reminder of Jesus' boundless love and mercy, that even in his darkest hour, he offered the gift of eternal life to someone who sincerely turned to him in faith. This story highlights the incredible power of redemption and the limitless grace that Jesus offers to all who believe in him.

Great story for Easter
Review by
This book tells the story of the crucifixion of Jesus from Luke 23. The story is told in a way that captures even the youngest readers attention. After the story a short gospel message is shared. This would be a perfect book to read at Easter time. At the very end there is a short glossary to help kids fully understand what was read. We are truly enjoying this series of books!
Powerful message in this little book!
Review by
A wonderful little book with a powerful message, at a reading level easy for my third grader to read to her younger siblings, and easy for them to follow and understand. I appreciate the way the author of this series tells a Bible story and then makes direct application with it. This volume uses the story of Jesus forgiving the thief crucified next to Him to illustrate that Jesus forgives and opens the way to heaven for those who believe in Him based on His forgiveness and promise only, not any good deeds we have done. It shows how the humility, love, and forgiveness of Jesus is what made the thief realize this truly was the Son of God and led him to believe in Him; how Jesus gave hope in the midst of hopelessness and life in the midst of death. The illustrations in this book are very “clean” and while we have talked about how awful and ugly the crucifixion scene would have truly been, I think these illustrations handle a heavy topic well for the younger ages. The “about the author” page is neat as it tells a little bit about Luke and how you can read his other true stories about Jesus in the Gospel of Luke in the Bible. Great addition to your library!
