Seeing and Believing

It is interesting to compare Peter's speech to his fellows Jews on the Day of Pentecost with that of his speech to the Roman centurion Cornelius and his family. Peter's Day of Pentecost speech is rich with quotations from the Old Testament, his speech to Cornelius contains none. Peter was careful to style the way he spoke to those who were hearing, but the message remained the same. "This Jesus God raised up, and of that all of us are witnesses." (Acts 2:32, cf Acts 10:39-41) The Gospel reading record two appearances of Jesus, one on the day of the resurrection and the other a week later. Each has its focus. In the first appearance, Jesus commissions his disciples (John 20:21-23). In the second appearance Jesus deals with the doubts of the disciple of Thomas. Jesus reprimands him, not because of honest doubts but because of a refusal to believe the testimony of his fellow disciples (John 20:25). Such a refusal by one of his disciples is the antithesis of the commissioning of them to be his witnesses. Even though Thomas responds with the most devout insight as to who Jesus is, "My Lord and my God," he receives no blessing. Rather Jesus blesses those who will believe through the testimony of the disciples (John 20:29).
