Some have cited the passage in Mark in presenting the case one way or another
in Luke, but I think a better place to go to say what Luke would have written
is the LXX.
LXX Is. 37:3 hHMERA QLIYEWS KAI ONEIDISMOU KAI ELEGMOU KAI ORGHS *hH SHMERON
"This very day is a day of tribulation, of reproach, of rebuke, and or wrath.
AMHN SOI LEGW SHMERON, MET' EMOU ESHi EN TWi PARADEISWi.
And I think he means
Truly I say to you today, "You will be with me in Paradis." (unemphatic)
Though with AMHN in place, it would have been difficult to make this reading
If he had written;
AMHN SOI LEGW, MET' EMOU ESHi EN TWi PARADEISWi *hH SHMERON hHMERA*.
I think he would have meant;
Truly I say to you, "This very day you will be with me in Paradis."
Though such arguments can only talk of probabilities, not any degree of
