In chapter 24 we find 2 unknown disciples on the road to Emmaus, and they are confused and distressed and just filled with doubt...

In a striking example of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone, Jesus promises the penitent thief hanging next Him - “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with me in Paradise.” Now what a shocker! He hadn’t been baptized, he hadn’t prayed more than once for all we know, [...]
