26 [a]Eight days later His disciples were again inside, and Thomas was with them. Jesus *came, the doors having been [b]shut, and stood in their midst and said, (A)Peace be to you.” 27 Then He *said to Thomas, (B)Place your finger here, and see My hands; and take your hand and put it into My side; and do not continue in disbelief, but be a believer.” 28 Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” 29 Jesus *said to him, “Because you have seen Me, have you now believed? (C)Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.”

Why This Gospel Was Written

30 (D)So then, many other [c](E)signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these have been written (F)so that you may believe that Jesus is the [d]Christ, (G)the Son of God; and that by (H)believing you may have life in His name.
