The Greatest Story Now Rarely Told (3)

4-2013In the evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.

Now Thomas, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So The other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.”

But he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”

Eight days later the disciples were again inside, and this time Thomas was with them. Jesus appeared among them even though the doors were shut, “Peace to you!” He said to them all and then to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.”

And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”

Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

And  Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written down but these details are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name
