THE DIFFERENT ENDS OF THE TWO THIEVES CRUCIFIED

WITH CHRIST.

And one of the malefactors, which were hanged, railed on him, saying, If

thou be the Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering, rebuked

him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condem-

nation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our

deeds : but this man hath done nothing amiss.—And he said unto Jesus,

Lord, remember me, when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus

said unto him, verily I say unto thee, To-day shalt thou be with me in

Paradise.—Luke xxiii. 39–43. - .

when Paul was now about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, If it

were a matter of wrong, or of wicked lewdness, O ye Jews, reason would,

that I should bear with you. But if it be a question of words and names

and of your law, look ye to it; for I will be no judge of such matters. And
