Jesus' Appearance to the Disciples (5-21-23)
On Resurrection Sunday, the disciples were hiding from the Jews and trying to make sense of all the stories they had heard about Jesus being alive. Suddenly, Jesus appeared in their midst, comforting and commissioning them to continue the work He had begun. When they told Thomas, who had not been with them, he refused to believe unless he were to see Jesus Himself. The next Sunday, they--including Thomas--were together again, and Jesus appeared to them. This time, Thomas believed and confidently proclaimed that Jesus is Lord and God.
