Seeing and Believing
Every year “Doubting” Thomas gets raked over the coals for not accepting his fellow disciples’ account of Jesus’ resurrection appearance. But can you really blame him? Can you say you wouldn’t at least have had a small doubt that your friends were a bit discombobulated from recent events and perhaps misinterpreted what they saw?
Doubts and uncertainties are part of being human. Throughout the Bible there are examples of people who sincerely questioned God, expressed their uncertainties and then received answers in a wide variety of ways.
As we continue our Easter celebrations this Sunday, we’re going to look at both the historical and personal evidences which strongly support the resurrection. You might be surprised at how much attestation there is to confirm the angels’ announcement, “He is not here, he has risen!” The point of this study, however, is much more than to satisfy intellectual curiosity. It is, rather, to lead us all to Thomas’ beautiful reaction when he saw Jesus, “My God and my Lord!”
