Rev Bob Hutchinson – Length 17:12




Easter 2 – Thomas had been elsewhere when Jesus appeared to the other disciples, the ones who had been too scared to venture outside of a locked room; and because Thomas later expressed his doubts concerning a visit from someone risen from the dead, readers of this gospel narrative often give him the nickname of "Doubting Thomas". But he is not referred to as such anywhere in the scriptures, and there is nothing wrong with doubt. Thomas's doubt led to a desire to know; and the questioning led to a declaration from the heart – he believed. Will you believe, when you have not seen? It is the experience of many, that Jesus is as real now as he was back then in the locked room.
John 20: 19-31
