Who Am I ? - First I doubted, Later, I believed that Jesus had risen! - BIBLE QUIZ

ANSWER: Thomas, the Apostle
Please read: John 20:24-29
(DEVOTION) 
My Lord and My God
Thomas the apostle (was nick-named Didymus, which means “the twin”) was not with the disciples when Jesus visited. When he returned to the house, the disciples let him in and told him what had happened. They said, "We have seen the Lord!" But Thomas had trouble believing such an amazing, unbelievable thing! Thomas doubted what his friends told him. He said, "Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and my hand in his side, I will not believe."

After a week, disciples were gathered together in the house again. This time Thomas was with them, too. Again, Jesus came, stood among them and said, "Peace be with you." Jesus offered to let Thomas touch the wounds in his hands and side, but Thomas believed immediately. He worshiped Jesus by saying, "My Lord and my God!" even without touching Jesus' scars. This time, he had no doubt.


My, that was a great statement of his faith. Let's applaud Thomas for believing and making that statement for our Bible. We learn things from the fact that Thomas missed out on some great moments. His failure serves us today. We know some things we might otherwise have missed.

These next words spoken by Jesus must have burned into the heart of Thomas as no other words had.
Jesus said, "Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe." - verse 29.

We learn that many other things were said and many things done that are not recorded in Scripture. But the things we do read have been preserved for our learning, teaching and preaching. Watch how the Chapter ends.

"And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name." (John 20:30, 31).


Thomas the apostle, though he had doubted, nevertheless came to believe; and, in his unshakable faith in the divinity of Christ, he has given a lasting testimony which has served to be the foundation of the faith of countless generations of believers who, imitating this great apostle, have cried out: “My Lord and My God.”
