My Lord My God

Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” John 20:28

Did Thomas curse? Today we look at the interaction Jesus had with his disciple Thomas. After Jesus was resurrected Thomas would not believe it was Jesus until he saw his wounds from the crucifixion. Jesus appeared face to face with Thomas and showed him the wounds in his hands and his side.

After Thomas seen this evidence with his own eyes, he declared Jesus My Lord and My God! Notice Jesus didn’t rebuke Thomas from calling him God. This is just another example of Jesus revealing his deity as he did throughout The Bible.

Anti-Trinitarians say that Thomas didn’t mean to call Jesus God, but that he actually cursed. As ridiculous as this sounds, this is the actual stance that they take.  Even though this claim is ridiculous , its also not likely for a couple of reasons.

First if we read the scripture in context, meaning read the entire chapter of John 20, after Jesus reveals himself to Thomas it makes sense that Thomas would confirm that Jesus was God. However for Thomas to curse during this story , really wouldn’t make any logical sense. There was no event that happened to cause this

Second, we need to remember Thomas was a devoted Jewish disciple. Meaning he was deep in his faith with God, everyone knows that the name of God is highly sacred and would never be spoken, especially as a curse. Do you need evidence? Look at the entire Old Testament, Jews changed the name of God (Yahweh) and replaced it with (The Lord). Jews did this so there was no chance that they would be taken Gods name in vein and breaking the commandment.

Its clear Jesus revealed himself as God and was declared God, question is , is Jesus Your Lord?

    It is often hard to believe how and why some people think what they think when it is so obviously wrong and foolish. I can’t judge. Before I was a Christian, I honestly didn’t realize that abortion was murder. After I got saved, the blinders fell off my eyes and I was ashamed of myself. So perhaps these folks who don’t believe the obvious are spiritually or self-agenda blinded.
