“And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.” King James Version (KJV) John Context 25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. He prays to Jesus Christ, saying, "My Lord and my God," and he has a feeling that the Lord Jesus Christ is the visible God, in whom is the invisible God as the body in which is the soul—the Father in the Son, as expressed in the Gospels. He loves the Lord with all his soul and heart, and he will gladly sacrifice position, wealth, popularity. When the other disciples later told him, “We have seen the Lord!” Thomas didn’t buy it. Rather, he blurted out, “Unless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe” (). Jesus didn’t rush back to convince the man. John English Standard Version (ESV). 26 Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” 28 Thomas answered.
Jesus Christ is God. And Jesus Christ is Lord! This is the central theme of the NT. "Lord" is used times. And just as often you hear the phrase, 'Make Jesus Lord ' Well, God beat you to it! Acts Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and : Jerry Shirley. My Lord and my God = two persons Normally in Greek if only one person is implied there will only be one “my”. Philippians I have thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, (ton adelphon kai sunergon kai sustratioten mou) and your messenger and minister to my need = one person. Like Thomas, we will face doubts. But the Lord promises us that we too will see Him and feel Him – not with our eyes and hands, but in the light of His truth and in the warmth of His love. And in that moment of recognition we too will be able to say in our hearts, “My Lord and my God!” Amen. Jesus Appears to Thomas 27 Then Jesus said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and look at My hands. Reach out your hand and put it into My side. Stop doubting and believe.” 28 Thomas replied, “My Lord and my God!” 29 Jesus said to him, “Because you have seen Me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”.
WHY WOULD THE APOSTLE THOMAS, who moments before had refused to accept the other apostles’ witness to Christ’s resurrection, suddenly proclaim that Jesus is “My Lord and my God” (John )? This question has been discussed since the Gospel of John was written. * My Lord and my God: this forms a literary inclusion with the first verse of the gospel: “and the Word was God.” * This verse is a beatitude on future generations; faith, not sight, matters. * [–31] These verses are clearly a conclusion to the gospel and express its purpose. The origins of this practice are that in St. Pius X issued an indulgence for the prayer “My Lord and my God” during the elevation by the priest. This indulgence, however, was for the lay faithful, since this prayer was not contained in the ritual book and to purposely stray from the ritual book was a mortal sin for the priest celebrant (De Defectibus, V, 20). – Part 1 – “My Lord and my God!” 24Now Thomas (called Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.”.
