Learning from Luke: A Criminal Response

Learning from Luke: A Criminal Response Sermon Audio Here

Luke 23:32-43

It’s been said that the definition of a criminal depends on what side of the law you’re on. There are blue-collar criminals who steal from individuals… and there are white-collar criminal corporations who steal from entire societies. But what is a criminal response?

To Spot a Criminal Response, Look For:

Innocence out of Place
Luke 23:32-35

Demands out of Line
Luke 23:36-39

Holy Out Of the Profane
Luke 23:40-43 <= this is Jesus’ response to the criminal

  • v40/41 the actual criminal noticed that Jesus did nothing wrong; he sees the difference between the holy and the profane
  • v42 we join with the criminal in his request: remember me
  • v43 Jesus’ response: I will

Remember the mountain where Jesus was crucified? (cf. Isa. 25:6-10a) God answered the criminal – all of us – by keeping His promise. Paradise is still accessible; all we need to is ask on His terms.
