“Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands and put my
finger into the nail marks and put my hand into his side,

I will not believe.”
John 20:19-31
Focus on the Gospel
April 28, Second Sunday of Easter
        When Thomas was told that Jesus had risen from the dead and appeared to the other disciples
while he was not with them, he has difficulty believing that it could be possible.  Thomas did not lack
faith in Jesus.  But the implications of Jesus rising from the dead were so immense that Thomas
wanted to be certain.  When Jesus learned that Lazarus had died, the other disciples tried to
dissuade Jesus from going near Jerusalem to get to Bethany because the Jewish leaders were
seeking to kill him,  It was Thomas who said, “Lets us go die with him!”  When Thomas sees the
Risen Jesus and is invited to put his finger and hands into the wounds, Jesus tells Thomas, “Do not be
unbelieving, but believe.”  It is Thomas who proclaims, “My Lord and my GOD.”  Jesus then speaks
to us: “Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”  In the midst of the challenges and
difficulties of our life, we may sometimes have doubts.  But we can have faith that Jesus is telling us,
“Do not be unbelieving, but believe.”
