WEEK B-E2

JOHN 20:19-31

On the evening of that first day of the week, when the doors were locked, where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.” Thomas, called Didymus, one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands and put my finger into the nailmarks and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.” Now a week later his disciples were again inside and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, although the doors were locked, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.”

1. Understand It! Midst

To be in the middle of.

Rejoiced

To feel or show great joy or delight.

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

Retain

To continue to have something, to keep possession of.

Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples that are not written in this book.

Blessed

To be made holy, consecrated.

But these are written that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through this belief you may have life in his name.

Messiah

The promised deliverer.

Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands, and bring your hand and put it into my side, and do not be unbelieving, but believe.” Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!”

2. Explore It! As we enter John 20:19, the disciples huddle together for fear that they would be discovered by the Judeans as followers of Jesus Christ. Instead of allowing Jesus to guide their actions and thoughts, it is the world they live in that does and results in the fear the disciples have. Yet it is through the appearance of Jesus, breathing into them the Holy Spirit, that the disciples break through the fear to experience Jesus’ joy and peace. Thomas, one of the disciples, was not present when Jesus first appears and does not believe the other disciples when told that Jesus is alive. It is not until Jesus appears directly before Thomas does he finally believe.

3. Connect It! 4. LIVE IT! [ FAITH ] From the beginning following Jesus’ resurrection, we see different responses to Jesus’ rising from the dead. Thomas is one example of that, where he says that he would not believe that Jesus has risen unless he is able to put his finger in the nail mark in Jesus’ hands and his hand into Jesus’ side. Thomas puts conditions on what it will take for him to believe in Jesus’ resurrection. How often do we put conditions on our relationship with God? If God would do this for me, then I’ll be a better Catholic. If God would do that for me, then I’ll know God exists. When we establish how God should operate in our lives and when our faith is based on what we demand from God, we are like Thomas, placing conditions on God. Jesus Christ calls on us to allow Him to guide our life, to believe without seeing, and transform our life to be more like Him.

to have complete trust or confidence in someone or something Explore ways in which you can strengthen your faith. This week, keep a journal of “letters of Jesus.” Each day, write a short paragraph of how your day went, of your frustrations and happy moments. Share with God the people in your life and their needs. Seek God’s guidance on difficult decisions and ask Him to strengthen your faith.

5. REMEMBER IT! 6. Pray It! God our Father, You conquer the darkness of ignorance by the light of Your Word. Strengthen within our hearts the faith You have given us; let not temptation ever quench the fire that Your love has kindled within us. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
