Luke 23:43

Context
23:43 And Jesus 1  said to him, “I tell you the truth, 2  today 3  you will be with me in paradise.” 4 

1 tn Grk “he.”

2 tn Grk “Truly (ἀμήν, amhn), I say to you.”

3 sn Jesus gives more than the criminal asked for, because the blessing will come today, not in the future. He will be among the righteous. See the note on today in 2:11.

4 sn In the NT, paradise is mentioned three times. Here it refers to the abode of the righteous dead. In Rev 2:7 it refers to the restoration of Edenic paradise predicted in Isa 51:3 and Ezek 36:35. In 2 Cor 12:4 it probably refers to the “third heaven” (2 Cor 12:2) as the place where God dwells.
