People's Bible Notes for John 20:29


Joh 20:29 Blessed [are] they that have not seen, and [yet] have believed. Thomas "saw" (he did not need to handle) and believed. We have not seen, but nevertheless believe upon the same Lord. Upon us he pronounces a special blessedness, because we walk by faith instead of sight.

    I wonder why the Bible doesn't tell us about the many other things done by Jesus during the time between the resurrection and the Ascension? We do know, from the book of James, that Jesus went to preach to the souls in prison -- fulfilling the Scripture "every ear shall hear and every tongue confess"...Perhaps there were others who received direct teaching by Him, as did Saul/Paul.

    Alfred: Acts 14:22.--- We must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. --after that tribulation,the sun shall be darkened--- powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory and then shall he send his angels,---together His elect---.Mark 13:24-27
