Discussion for John 20

  • Irene123
    V. - it has been mentioned on here (2014) that Thomas actually touched Jesus' wounds. The Bible doesn't say such, only that Jesus 'offered'; Thomas could SEE them; that may have been enough, even though Thomas said, "unless I touch ....."; we need to be more circumspect about what we say about God's word; we need to stop and think on what we read.
  • Jubilee Smith
    Thomas' 8 days of unbelief. What a waste. These 8 days could have been spent in the praise of the resurrected King. It could have been spent in sharing the gospel. Alas! it was spent in unbelieve.
  • Jean Norris
    One of the questions mentions which apostle was not with the rest when Jesus first showed himself. The answer was Thomas; however, another name was a correct answer. Paul was not an apostle at that time.
  • Muqbool for verse 17
    When Mary recognised her Lord her first reaction was to hug him full of emotion. Jesus pleaded with her to be mindful of his wounds and internal injuries as he was still alive and in the same body.
  • Vicki Albanese for verse 7
    I agree with it being tradition for the king to fold up the napkin to show the servant he would be returning.
  • Bozki
