"Did both thieves revile Jesus?" (Alleged Contradiction #E7587)
Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
At first, both thieves reviled Jesus; however, one of them stopped, rebuked the other, and then accepted Christ.
