“So the other disciples were saying to him, ‘We have seen the Lord’” (John 20:25a).
Though Thomas had been absent, the other disciples were doing the very thing we would expect from witnesses of the resurrection — telling others the good news. Those who really believe it have no difficulty in communicating it. We are followers of Christ only because someone told us. We are part of a rich apostolic heritage. The telling of good news did rest upon the eleven disciples and all of us to this day. Our vibrancy and perpetuation as the people of God has long resided in the telling our story (Deuteronomy 6:6-8,20-24).
