Doubhting Thomas and the Resurrection

David Hilfiker

April 19, 2009

John 20:19-31
Acts 4:32-35

This week’s Gospel reading is from John. It’s a week after the Resurrection. All the other apostles have already experienced the risen Jesus except Thomas who’s told the others he simply won’t believe it until he sees the nail holes. The Gospel emphasizes that all the doors are shut tight, but Jesus appears among the disciples, anyway, and Thomas “sees for himself” … and confesses his faith: “My Lord and my God!” But Jesus then says, “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.”
