Dec 22 Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me. I send you.” He inhaled and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit, those whose sins you forgive are forgiven, those whose sins you do not forgive are not forgiven.2 The disciple Thomas, also called Twins,3 wasnt with them when Jesus came. When the others said they had seen the Lord, he said, “Unless I see and feel the nail imprints and put my hand into his side, I wont believe.”

16.9 A week later, Thomas was in the house with the disciples. Though the doors were locked, Jesus stood in their midst saying, “Peace be with you!” And to Thomas, “Touch and see my hands, and put your hand into my side. Dont doubt but believe.” Thomas answered, “My Lord and my God!”

Then Jesus said, “Because you have seen me, you believe. Blessed are those who havent and yet believed.”
