My friend Ben Witherington III posts today here at patheos about the book entitled Dreams and Visions: Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World? (Thomas Nelson, 2012).

How to Unite Christians, Muslims, and Jews

What Did Jesus Mean by “Paradise”?

When examining a particular gospel saying of Jesus, we should not only consider its immediate context but also anything else Jesus’ said about that subject or some specific word in his New Testament corpus, that is, in his entire gospel sayings. An example is Jesus’ pronouncement about the word “Paradise” to one of the two men who were crucified with him.All four New Testament gospels record that Jesus was crucified between two other men (Matt. 27.38; Mark 15.27; Luke 23.33; John 19.18).
