“Then He said to Thomas, ‘Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; believing’” (John 20:27).
He had seen the crucifixion and probably watched as Jesus was placed in the tomb. I get Thomas. He’s a rationalist. For him, the journey ended Friday evening with “It is finished.” What Thomas, and every rationalist like him, must come to recognize is that “It is finished” carries more meaning than you would ever have imagined. What is finished is living under the Law; living without hope; living in fear of death. “It is finished” is but the beginning of endless possibilities.
