Comments

this was a sermon that i needed to hear this week nadia - after all the warmongering and hollow victory and hatred and violence. your voice and insights are so grounding. last year i heard a great sermon on thomas in florence italy. the american piskie priest read the gospel in italian - pace a voi. he said the crazy thing is that thomas was the least afraid of all the disciples as he was out in the world while they were locked up in their fear. i was raised to believe that doubt isnt the opposite of faith. fear is. bless you for your faith in action in the world.

Beautiful--a barging in Father indeed.
Wonderful post.

From Thomas's reaction to meeting the risen Jesus I think he was scared of what it meant if Jeus had risen. 'My Lord and my God' was blasphemy to a Jew but Thomas spoke them and Jesus didn't deny them. Thomas had realised that the resurrection meant Jesus was God and that all the Jewish tradition he had grown up with was in the past; Jesus wasn't starting a Jewish movement but was doing something new.

"Courageous" Thomas=hero of all who honor doubt as integral to faith. Certitude--not doubt--is the opposite of faith.

Stumbled onto your blog somehow. Thanks--it's swell.

I am so thankful that you write this blog- I no longer live in Colorado and your thoughts speak directly to my own perception of the gospel, so I am so glad to have this!

Actually Judas is the Betrayer. And because of his betrayal we almost never talk about him except to say he betrayed Jesus. We never recognize that he did make it into the intimiate circle of 12. He brings so much more to the table that we need to talk about. How many of us betray Jesus for money on a daily basis, outside and inside the church? And that's just the tip of the iceberg!

Cool message. I imagine when Thomas saw Jesus for the first time after Thomas's death that Jesus didn't mention the doubting episode at all. I picture it like Jesus saying "Remember that one time when you thought I was going to get killed and you told everybody to go and die with me? Me too."

Good food for thought here. Thank you, it's been very useful.
