Thomas: Don't Stop Until You Meet Jesus

In today’s passage we meet Thomas. He is often called, “doubting” Thomas. He had many questions. He had the spirit of inquiry. He wanted to know how and why. He had been with Jesus and known him for about three years. But still Thomas just knew Jesus from a human point of view (cf. 2 Co 5:16). He didn’t know who Jesus really is. He didn’t know why Jesus must suffer and die. He didn’t know why Jesus had to leave him and the other disciples. So he asked Jesus, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” (v. 5) Jesus replied, “I AM the way.” He didn’t say, “I will show the way.” The answer to Thomas’ inquiry was the person of Christ.
