Today in Paradise
- An English lit colleagues is trying to run down background information on
the controversy, evident in some Puritan writing, over whether the "today"
in the Lukan assertion about the thief in paradise undermines the idea of
Purgatory. Does anyone know of any discussion of the history of the
interpretation of this passage?
I have found an article in Bible Translator and those cited in Fitzmyer, but
nothing on how and when the controversy developed.
