John 20:29 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

29 [a]Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”

Conclusion.[b]

Footnotes:

  1. 20:29 This verse is a beatitude on future generations; faith, not sight, matters.
  2. 20:30–31 These verses are clearly a conclusion to the gospel and express its purpose. While many manuscripts read come to believe, possibly implying a missionary purpose for John’s gospel, a small number of quite early ones read “continue to believe,” suggesting that the audience consists of Christians whose faith is to be deepened by the book; cf. Jn 19:35.
