Waiting on Jesus (John 20:24-29)

Part of the Misc. series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Imagine you were Thomas, the Apostle. How would you have interpreted the events around the first Easter? The journey to Jerusalem? The crucifixion? The resurrection? How would you have felt if Jesus had appeared to your friends, but not to you? Listen, as if you were listening to Thomas himself, and see what you think.

John 20:24-29

24But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. 26And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 27Then saith he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 28And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. 29Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. (KJV)
