Often we only remember the bad things about someone and, when we do, that single memory eclipses whatever good a person’s life might have stood for. Case in point: the disciple Thomas. Or, “Doubting Thomas” as we like to call him.
Thomas is mentioned three times in Scripture but we tend to only focus on these words:
“Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe” John 20:25.
But Thomas said much more. In fact, he seemed to be the one disciple who had the courage to verbalize what everyone else was thinking. And that courage and loyalty to our Lord was clearly shown in the raising of Lazarus from the dead.
Want to learn more about the honesty, courage and loyalty displayed by our “doubting” friend? Good. Then keep listening.
The following is a study on John 11:7-16.
