Josef Stalin who terrorized and oppressed the Soviet Union.

When a wicked man dies, his expectation will perish, and the hope of the unjust perishes.

Before his death, Stalin, who had ruled the Soviet Union with tactics of terror and had dealt ruthlessly even with former comrades and family, became paranoid, terrified that others were plotting to destroy him as he had destroyed so many of them.

He died without hope in this world or the next. After his death, even his memory was execrated by those who had trembled before him in life.

By contrast, Jesus, who harmed no one but rendered service to all, died in the expectation of resurrection, and his hope was fully vindicated. Men and women by the millions adore the memory of him.
