Interesting. Actually confirms Scott’s ideas on Eschatology structures.
Adds something on Paradise. Paradise could represent the ‘good sector’, where Purgatatory exists … or Christ may of been talking about yet another intermediate locale.
The fact that Christ told the thief he would be with him in Paradise that very day … could suggest Hades, since Christ went to the underworld to preach to the OT dead, and to release them from prison
Alternatively, the thief being fully redeemed, may of bypassed Purgatory … and been @ the locale to which Christ took the released prisoners.
