Two criminals were also executed the day Jesus was crucified. At one point both men were hurling insults at Jesus along with those who were surrounding the cross. One had a change of heart as he considered his fate and understood who Jesus was. He feared God, admitted his guilt and accepted the death sentence, and confessed Jesus had done nothing wrong. In addition, he acknowledged Jesus was the king of His coming kingdom and had the power to forgive his sin and allow him entrance into eternal life.
