Looking for Him

John 20:19-31

All the gospels, other than Mark, recount Jesus' resurrection appearances. John's resurrection stories are particular to his gospel, but still fit with the accounts of the other gospel writers. John, in the passage before us, records two resurrection appearances, both in a locked room: The first with ten disciples, Judas and Thomas not being present; The second, a week later, with Thomas present.

Thomas believed by seeing; blessed are those who believe without seeing. Jesus may be pronouncing a special blessing on those who do better than Thomas, but probably not. Nor is he rebuking Thomas. All who follow will have to believe without seeing, and blessed are they when they do.
