In the Easter sermon Rev. Shegog preaches in The Sound and the Fury he refers to the two men who were crucified alongside Jesus as "de thief and de murderer" (296). By the "murderer" he presumably means the thief who killed the men he robbed. In the Gospels this man taunts Jesus even as they are crucified, which may explain Shegog's "I hears de boastin en de braggin" (296).
