Bodily, Tangible Proof
John tells us about Thomas’ reluctance to believe his fellow disciples. It’s rather amazing that though Thomas and his fellow disciples have doubts, confusion, and fear, it is to them—in their doubts, confusion, and fear—that Jesus comes. He intrudes among those who are huddled behind locked doors. He comes to the one who needs bodily, tangible proof. He comes to his church today amid our doubts, confusion and fear and gives his presence, his voice, what we need to believe.
