The soldiers crucified Jesus by nailing Him to a cross. Above Him, they put sign on the cross which read, ‘Jesus the King of the Jews’. Then they gambled for His clothes. On either side of Jesus two thieves were also crucified. Jesus spoke out to God saying, ‘Father forgive them, they don’t know what they are doing.’ – Slide 1

One of the thieves next to Jesus looked at Him and said, ‘If you are the Christ save us!’ But the other thief said, ‘We deserve to be punished but this Man is innocent.’ Then he spoke to Jesus and said, ‘Remember me when you enter your kingdom.’ Jesus told him ‘Today you will be with Me in Paradise.’ – Slide 3
