John 20:28--"Thomas answered Him, "My Lord and My God!"
Thomas reveals UNDERSTANDING as his dominant spiritual attribute.
A fisherman who worked with Peter and Andrew, Thomas is known as the "doubting one" who came to believe. Because he had not been present when Jesus first appeared to the Disciples after the crucifixion, Thomas said "Unless I see the mark of the nails, and place my hand in his side, I will not believe."
Later, when Jesus again appeared to the Disciples, Thomas was the one who fell immediately to his knees crying out to Jesus, "My Lord and My God!"
--expressing even greater understanding that the others had revealed. His was the kind of mind which gradually "unfolds" by searching, inquiring, discovering-- the mind which seeks Truth that it may believe.
According to tradition, Thomas organized the Christian church in India where he died while kneeling in prayer.
THOMAS DIDYMUS - 'DOUBTING THOMAS' Thomas may have laboured for the Gospel in Parthia (including modern Iraq and Iran), but stronger traditions link him with southern India. Indian Christians from the west coast Kerala area claim they were evangelized by Thomas, who was later speared to death near Madras on the east coast. Mount St. Thomas, close to Madras is associated with his name.
