' . • , , PALESTINE At THE TIME .OP Christ;' was ,a% advanced civll- .ization. They, had sewer systems, education was compulsory, false teeth had been in use for 500 years, there was a form of tajfci Aeter, they told time by water? clocks, > had a strict .form '^of. taxation and ^thfey loaned money out .at-8'"per cent interest. They* 1 had very little trduble'Mth'hbusing criminals. Offenders ,were 'what Amounted 'to 1 a" fair trial before .the^Sanhedrin, but all sentences jwere, severe," .There were no prisons, no, asylums and the usual sentence fdr those found guilty was'death in onejqf.four'wayst-Btoning. burning, decapitation or strangulation. Sometimes' they' combined them and hung the offenders on a cross..Nobody was exactly' sure what horrible, crime Jesus had-committed,-but .after,."everybody decided to "wash 1 their hands'" of'him, he- was,- sentenced ito die on-the cross. And two others,^ listed in* the Scripture's' as ^thieves"- were sentenced ,,to.die on either side .' V EXECUTIONS WERE PUBLICAN THOSE days. Tne^one seri - teheed to die wasn't the only one who suffered, for I imagine that many; of the families »• of the condemned 1 witnessed the killings, drawn" both by, a. hdrrible'fascination'and"the desparate hope that 'at the last their loved 'one would be pardoned. Scripture tells* us , ttyat Mary, the Mother of/Jesus, was -at 'the Cross and we can only imagine what torture* she" suffered even though she "knew, her Son •was .destined to save tKe world. Because the-Bible tells us" that ( ' Everything'Written-there, is'true; and'"hiany.'more things", I am wondering if the mother* of one of .the thieves,could not also have been present. - „ , , •'*..•'.*. v * THE MOTHER OF ONE'OF THE THIEVES'tould have been a , woman who had/always had-trouble with '/her "boy.. Maybe he was mischievous in his ^youth,', prone to skipping school at the'temple and probably keeping the-change'when she sent him to the merchant for a bottle of olive oil/ Later he probably fell in with wilrj companions, but, he, probably 'still had winnings ways. Like mosj mothers, she might, have";thought he would grow"out,of his.naughti ness'and settle.-dowri when'he was older.' ••'<, '*•<« , :.'-i.-'\ ' > • . *• * , "*;{ '".•'••'• •<;THE. MOTHER OF THE THIEF DESTINE!? to die next to Jesus might have been one of the multitudes privileged" to hear Him 'speak. She might have been there ,when -,He' preached "His strange "philosophy of turning the othefr che'ek ,and she might have, hearc • her neighbors clucking over this Nazarene..who sometimes preferrec shady characters to the Publicans who held high offices. v IT COULD BE THAT THE MQTHER OF the'thief hadn't'heard much from hereby f or r the, .past,, few 'years.' Youngsters,. bbys* especially, aren't too good«at,-Writing letters,' unless they need some, quick ca&h from home. Perhaps she had'raised some quick, cash-by > selling a few possessions a time or two, wheh.her>bpy,was,,in;trouble. Or maybe the first word : she\'had fronr.him 1 was when she found he was really % in dutch with the authorities. If* she "was like most mothers," she rushed to his side immediately. , ' ( s CALVARY) JUST OUTSIDE'OF-JERUSALEM, was dark the day of the executions. An' unseasonable storm seemed to have .struck the area. The atmosphere outside was,not»half so dark as the'feeling inside the loved ones of the* men to'die-there.-'As.'if 'the disgrace of being condemned, the pain'of-the nails,,the'slowness of the, death and- the ^inhuman torture ^of/the soldiers • weren't enough, the c'rdwds had,to hurl insults, at Jthem! .The mother of the thief must have thought, "Why can't he die quickly and leave me to my sorrow?" > ' '< ' , • >, i *'•.-"', , . f - • « - * . *•..->> A ,ONE OF TEJP THIEVES, SCRIPTURE tens' us, joined the • crowd in jeering at Our'Lord. "King of the'vJews! Well, then saye •yourself!" The other, struck by a blind, overwhelming faith said, v "Put in a good word for me to your Father." Jesus, who was at this point still man and God, out of His amazing compassion said, "This day you shall be with me in paradise." ,', IF THE JMOTHER OF .T^HE THIEF WAS THERE, and I like to think that she, was, these words must have been transforming.. If her b'oy, a thief, acceptable in-the eyes if this man who more and more proved he was the Son of God, could gain salvation simply because he belived, surely there was hope for her, too and for any of her neighbors! The Bible doesn't tell us; but she* could have been qne of those to whom He appeared in the days before the Ascension. We do know, that the thief who hung; on a cross on the side-of Jesus is, according to-the'Bible one of f the ; yery few^ people absolutely assurred of gaining heaven, ^ ;' ^ ' ( ' * , \ ' A MOTHER'S FAITH IS AS OLp>sUime:>A mother can always se&soine good in her'child, no, matter how" hidden 4it is from the' rest of the world. It is pure speculation on my*>part,-but'I would, venture to guess that the thief/who at the'last-moments of his life gained ^salvation by his simple statement of confession, also saved others. One of them could have been,his m'pther. I do know that it , would not be the only time a parent has been led to eternal truths • by one of.his offspring.; -'^' .' • " ^ ' ' £*' " , - r ^ THERE WAS A REAL NICE LETTER this week from Mrs Ralph Stoll of LuVerne.
