The Holy Gospels of Matthew and Mark mention that even those who were crucified with him reviled Him, while the Holy Gospel according to St. Luke states that the thief on the right handside of the Lord rebuked the one on the left handside and asked our Lord Jesus Christ to remember him in His kingdom. Why that difference?

Both thieves reviled the Lord at the beginning; but when the one on the right hand side had witnessed the passion of Christ and His love for his blasphemers and crucifiers calling on God the Father, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do" (Luke 23:34). He believed and repented.
