Bible Commentary for John 20:28

Wesley's Notes for John 20:28

20:28 And Thomas said, My Lord and my God - The disciples had said, We have seen the Lord. Thomas now not only acknowledges him to be the Lord, as he had done before, and to be risen, as his fellow disciples had affirmed, but also confesses his Godhead, and that more explicitly than any other had yet done. And all this he did without putting his hand upon his side.

    Thomas the one that was faithless when he sees Jesus says My Lord and My God !

    Ok so now Thomas the unbeliever is an expert all of a sudden and the Godhead has a verse proving it s self as Doctrine.

    Oh but wait a minute read the rest of the chapter.

    It's because Thomas has seen the Lord risen he now believes that Jesus is risen . Not that Jesus is God . But yes it's Gods power no doubt about it .

    Read verse 31 : death to the God head doctrine, again .

    It's always good to keep things in context .

    But these are written , that ye might believe that Jesus is the CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD; and that believing ye might have life through his name .

    Case closed again !

    No GOD the Son even though Thomas acknowledged that God is in Jesus , that's true , but not the same as GOD THE SON that's heresy .

    Alex comments on the Trinity,God wd not tell Moses his name was Abraham Issac and Jacob,which was father son and Granson if his Kingdom were not a trinity a family just like the Abrahamic trinity was a family that resulted in the nation of ISRAEL. Without this heavenly trinity there can NOT be an Israel of GOD, ITS SIMPLY FATHER SON AND GRANSON THAT IS GONNA BECOME THE ISRAEL OF GOD,thats y God told Moses that his name was Abraham Issac n Jacob,that is my name forever and my memorial to ALL GENERATIONS. the Abrahamic trinity was an exact profile of the heavenly trinity as God offered up his only son just as Abraham offered up his only son Issac. a 5 yr old can understand this father son and granson scenario, without it there can not be an Israel of God, Its GOD Almighty that wants a posterity and Christ was just his 1st born of many brethren,Thats y God swore by his VERY SELF when he made that Promise of multiplication MEANING THERE HAS TO BE AN ISRAEL OF GOD, God is gona be multiplied, thats y Jesus will go forth and sow his precious seed in humanity.The very fact that we have a FATHER AND A SON BEGS THE QUESTION OF A GRANSON and an Israel of God . The heavenly trinity is an exact profile of Abraham Issac and Jacob thats what Abraham means exaulted Father. The child of promise was issac but the Promise Child in the heavenly is the H.G. as Jesus refers to the H.G as the Promise of the Father And thats y the sower will go forth to sow his Precious seed in humanity that God might be multiplied in us sinners resulting in an Israel of God. The Abrahamic trinity was just the basics .As Abraham was multiplied as the sands of the seas, which is just prophetic that Christ is gonna be mulltipled as the STARS OF HEAVEN in mankind thats y he calls himself the son of man i.e. God is gonna be multiplied in humanity via the seed of CHRIST.Thats y Jesus said to whom the WORD HIS SEED came it made them GODS, Jesus cd not sow the GOOD seed TH SEED OF GOD if he were not God th SON.

    The Iglesia Ni Cristo which was founded by the Manalo's claiming that Jesus Christ is not fully God but He is fully man because in other form Jesus Christ is Manalo. And in this verse they are saying Thomas was just shocked so he called Jesus My Lord & My God! But blesses be those recognizing Jesus Christ is Fully God!
