end of luke

I’ve the privilege of preaching the last passage in Luke (24:13-53) this Sunday night.  Wow.  What a passage!  Just for the hey of it, here’s a painting by Caravaggio called ‘The Incredulity of Thomas’, based on this and the other parallel gospel passages.  What a painting!

Note Jesus' hand guiding Thomas' own hand

  1. When I consider our society today, I wonder–would we be any different than Thomas? Are we (as a society) any different than Thomas?

  2. One aspect of the account of Thomas that I see as important is what Thomas does with his doubts. He doesn’t go and sit in the corner and ignore what’s happening: he takes his doubts straight to Jesus. He says, “Look, this all seems crazy and it’s really hard for me to accept that it can be true.” And Jesus responds by meeting his doubts: “Here – come have a closer look. Investigate. Test me and see that I am Truth.”
