Seeing and Believing

24 Now Thomas, (A)called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”

So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”

26 And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” 27 Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and (B)reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be (C)unbelieving, but believing.”

28 And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”

29 Jesus said to him, [a]“Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. (D)Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

That You May Believe

30 And (E)truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 (F)but these are written that (G)you may believe that Jesus (H)is the Christ, the Son of God, (I)and that believing you may have life in His name.
