The last oral reference Jesus makes to the 'Kingdom of God' is while on the cross. Surprisingly, it is not Jesus who initiates the discussion. This time round, it is the thief crucified along with Him. As one preacher today informed, perhaps this thief was a good man and had been following Jesus around. There is no other way one can explain his 'instant conversion' on the cross. Furthermore, his request to Jesus to remember him, is certainly a proof that he knew what Jesus spoke all along during His ministry.
