John 20:24-29

24 Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”

So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”

26 And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” 27 Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.”

28 And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”

29 Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”



Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among the disciples.

Jesus: “Peace be with you!”

Jesus to Thomas:
“Put your finger here; see My hands. Reach out your hand and put it into My side. Stop doubting and believe.”
“Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and put out your hand and place it in My side. Do not be unbelieving, but stop doubting and believe.”

Thomas to Jesus: “My Lord and my God!”

Then Jesus to Thomas:
“Because you have seen Me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
“Because you have seen Me, do you now believe? Blessed are they who did not see Me and yet believed in Me.”

John 19:17-22

17 And He, bearing His cross, went out to a place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha, 18 where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, one on either side, and Jesus in the center. 19 Now Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross. And the writing was:

JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.

20 Then many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin.

21 Therefore the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but, ‘He said, “I am the King of the Jews.” ’ ”

22 Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”



The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate:
“Do not write ‘The King of the Jews,’ but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews.”
“Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews’; but, ‘He said, “I am King of the Jews.”’”

Pilate: “What I have written, I have written.”
Pilate: “What I have written I have written and it remains written.”

John 17:20-21
20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.



Jesus: “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in Me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as You are in Me and I am in You. May they also be in Us so that the world may believe that You have sent Me.”

Jesus: “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for all those who will ever believe and trust in Me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as You, Father are in Me and I am in You. May they also be one in Us so that the world may believe without any doubt that You have sent Me.”
