Sermon Preached at Hope UCA 16th April by Moi

St Thomas (c. 1611) by Peter Paul Rubens


In finding Thomas we discover Jesus

It was the First day of the week, Sunday to you and me, ten disciples, Judas was gone, and Thomas was late, were consoling themselves, in the house where they had taken refuge. Behold the Lord appeared, walking through the locked door. The doors were locked for ‘fear of the Jews’ Judeans would have been a better choice of words.

 A Ghost!? Well, no – merely the Crucified Lord demonstrating the benefits of the Transfiguration of Resurrection. Saying – “You too will do this.”

Andrew Blair Lay Preacher
