John 20:24-31


Jesus Appears to Thomas

Now Thomas (called Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”
But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.”

A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!”
Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”
Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book.
But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

  1. The mystery of the faith, believing without seeing, faith transcends the material so that not compatible.blessed are those who believe without seeing.

  2. I have been a Thomasina many times in my life I have. However I thank God for His grace and mercy that is the foundation of my Faith in Him and guides me and directs me in my Thomasina moments. Praise God that He uses just plain ordinary people to conduct His message that He has saved us by His grace and mercy.
    Jonie Thank you for this share awesome well done.

  3. lovely passage from the NT – Thomas is a bit of a hero!! If he hadn’t asked some of his questions, we wouldn’t have had the Lord’s great answers

  4. I believe and like Jesus said that those who believe without seeing are very lucky to have true faith. We had this Gospel reading this Saturday at Mass. Lovely
