One of the most interesting resurrection encounters concerns the Apostle Thomas, one in which he is given a dubious title of “doubting Thomas. Let’s not be too tough on him. After all, the cross had crushed his faith in Jesus, and even his closest friends couldn’t get him to believe. They insisted that Jesus was raised from the dead and they had seen Him. But Thomas needed proof, like putting his fingers in the nail marks on Jesus’ hands and feet and put his hand into Jesus’ side. When Jesus invites him to do so, Thomas comes up with the greatest expression of faith when he acknowledges Jesus as “My Lord and my God.”
