three at golgotha

Has anyone come across anything along these lines before, as a way of distinguishing between the three crucifixions at Calvary?

  • One had sin on him but not in him; one had sin in him but not on him; one had sin in him and on him.

Or this:

  • One was dying for sin, one was dying to sin, and one was dying in sin.

In both cases referring respectively to Jesus, the penitent thief, and the impenitent thief.

  1. Don’t really know where i heard the first one, i’ve known it for ages although no idea what its source is. The other one was wholly new to me a few weeks ago, by a minister (not mine) who said it in a way that assumed everyone would know it.
