Answering the doubting Christians

The doubt of Saint Thomas is proverbial. Yet, was Thomas, really, the only one to have doubts, while the other disciples easily and immediately believed in the Risen One? It does not seem that things went that way.

Sumainyo ang Kapayapaan!

Kinagabihan ng Linggo ding iyon ang mga alagad ay nagkakatipon. Naka-pinid ang mga pinto ng bahay na kanilang pinagtitipunan dahil sa takot nila sa mga Judio. Dumating si Hesus at tumayo sa gitna nila, “Sumainyo ang kapayapaan!” sabi niya. Pagkasabi nito, ipinakita niya ang kanyang mga kamay at ang kanyang tagiliran. Tuwang-tuwa ang mga alagad nang makita ang Panginoon” (John 20:19-20).

They rejoice in seeing the Lord
The doubting of Thomas of today’s gospel is proverbial. However a closer reading of the gospels depicts that all the disciples doubted, but only poor old Thomas became famous for it.
 
But why does John focus on Thomas? John is writing to third generation Christians, people who have not seen the Lord Jesus.
