Thomas was prone to extremes. On the one hand he’s willing to accompany Jesus bravely to Judea and on the other needing to touch the nail prints in Jesus hands and feet to prove to himself that he wasn’t seeing a ghost. The moniker ‘doubting Thomas’ should more appropriately be ‘pouting Thomas’ because he wasn’t with the other disciples when Jesus first appeared to them and felt slighted. He was thrust through with pine spears, tortured with red hot coals and finally burned alive. He would not deny his risen Savior.
