Christian Kids Activities: Jesus Appears to the Disciples & Thomas

John 20:19-31, Luke 24:13-50, Mark 16:14-18, Matthew 28:16-20

I find this bible story, following Jesus’ resurrection very fascinating.  The scripture is about Jesus coming and standing among the disciples, even though they were gathered behind locked doors at the time.  One of the twelve disciples, Thomas was not with them.  When the disciples told Thomas what happened on that night he did not believe what they told him.

In order that Thomas might believe the Lord appeared again to the disciples when Thomas was present and they were again gathered behind locked doors.  Thomas felt Jesus’ wounds, and it was only then that he believed.

Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” John 20:29 NIV

So according to this scripture, Christians today who have not had the opportunity to see Jesus with their own eyes, but still believe are blessed and happy, and may have life.
