April 28, 2019 - Learning to Doubt Our Doubts
John 20: 19-31
The news of Jesus’ resurrection spread quickly among his disciples. You can imagine the quickened pulse and the rapid, excited speech of those who had encountered the risen Christ as they shared their experience with others. You can also imagine the difficulty that those who heard their story had in believing them.

The first recipients of the good news of Easter were his male disciples and, typically, they considered it the idle nonsense of distraught and hysterical women and did not believe it. But as more and more of the disciples and followers of Jesus encountered the risen Christ the stories gained credibility.

The most famous holdout was a disciple named Thomas, also called the Twin. “Unless I see the print of the nails in his hands,” said Thomas, “and place my fingers in the print of the nails, and unless I can put my hand in his side, I will not believe.” 

Many of us have had times in our lives when we could identify with Thomas. We too have rebelled. We too have doubted.
