“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; and do not be unbelieving, but believing’” (John 20:27).

Being that humankind is the thinking part of God’s creation, we should not hold Thomas in low regard for his skepticism. He simply expressed what we all want to know — “Did the resurrection really happen?” Even so, only the most simple-minded limit belief to what can be touched, observed, measured, and understood. Thomas’ criteria for his belief, however, has provided us an invaluable benefit — another piece of evidence to move us from unbelief to belief.
