Jesus' Meeting with
That very night Jesus came and stood in the middle of His disciples and said to them, "Peace be to you."
Then He showed them his hands and his side. The disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.
Jesus told them again, "Peace be to you. Just as my father sent me, so send you."
After He said this, he breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. Whoever since you remit, they are emitted and whoever's sins you retained, they are retained."
But Thomas who was one of the 12 disciples, was not with them when Jesus appeared to them. The other disciples told him, "We have seen the Lord!"
By Thomas relied, "I won't believe unless I see the print of the nails in His hands and put my finger into the print of the nails and thrust my hand into his side!"
Eight days later, Jesus' disciples were meeting, but this time Thomas was with them. The doors were shut, but Jesus suddenly stood in the midst of the disciples and said, "Peace be to you."
Then He said to Thomas, "Stretch out your finger and examine My hands. Reach out your hand and thrust it into my side. Don't doubt, but believe!"
Thomas answered, "My Lord and my God!"
Jesus answered, "Thomas, because you see Me you believe, but happy are those who have not seen and yet believe."
