If Jesus followed Church Rules

We were having a conversation / debate in the pub last night about rules that different churches insist on following. I couldn’t help how the conversation would have gone between Jesus and other 2 robbers on the cross, if Jesus was the same:

(from Luke Chapter 23)

39One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Christ? Save yourself and us!”

40But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? 41We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”

42Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.[f]

43Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, I’ll make the world go really dark so no one will see you. Get yourself off the cross, and to the nearest pond with a disciple who’ll baptise you,make sure your also confirmed just in case. Get your name down for a few a rotas while you’re there. Make sure you also spend sometime speaking in tongues. Get yourself back here, and onto the cross and today you will be with me in paradise.”
