Thomas gets a bad rap. For three thousand years, “Doubting Thomas, doubting Thomas.” Have we not read the entire account of the resurrection? When the women got to the tomb, they assumed someone had stolen the body. They didn’t believe, they were looking for the gardener. They did not know that Jesus had been risen and even when they were told they kind of questioned that. When they went and told the other disciples they said, “No, I don’t think so.” They doubted it. Every single person who had those initial encounters with Jesus, initially doubted.
