A question came to my mind. Were the two (2) thief who was crucified together with our Lord Jesus Christ exonerated from their sins since they died together for their own sins? Alas, the other one repented not.
We all know that Jesus died without sin when he was nailed on a tree.
1 Pet 2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
1 Pet 2:22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
And He pleaded guilty for our sins neither defended himself from the accusations hurled against Him.
1 Pet 2:23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
1 Pet 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Many might think, there is injustice here but let me put it this way: Between a Janitor and a President of the Company; do you pity the janitor cleaning the toilet or would you rather have mercy on the President cleaning the toilet?
Or maybe you would doubt the scenario that a President of a certain Company can go down to that level of being a Janitor but Jesus did.
Phil 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Phil 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
Though in the beginning He is God.
Jn 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Jn 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
What was magnified in the nailing of Jesus is the mercy He obtained from God thus made Him worthy to be called "the only mediator between God and men".
Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
