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

24 Now Thomas, one of the Twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe.”

26 Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” 28 Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” 29 Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (ESV)
