Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 339

  1. “Put your finger here…” (John 20:26).

Mercy, pure and simple. Jesus could have rejected Thomas for his failure to believe, but instead He shows mercy and reveals himself to the doubting disciple in a personal manner, much like He would do for Simon Peter in the next chapter. This is Jesus–never giving up, willing to help the struggling overcome their weakness. And, this is Thomas–the soon-to-be apostle who history records sacrificing his very life to take the message toward eastern places like India. What he became would never have become had Jesus not seen past his melancholy or doubt. He took the man’s hand and ran his fingers through the scars, and Thomas would never doubt again.
