[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Joh 20:19 It was late that Sunday evening, and the disciples were gathered together behind locked doors, because they were afraid of the Jewish authorities. Then Jesus came and stood among them. "Peace be with you," he said.
Joh 20:20 After saying this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples were filled with joy at seeing the Lord.
Joh 20:21 Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father sent me, so I send you."
Joh 20:22 Then he breathed on them and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit.
Joh 20:23 If you forgive people's sins, they are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven."
Joh 20:24 One of the twelve disciples, Thomas (called the Twin), was not with them when Jesus came.
Joh 20:25 So the other disciples told him, "We have seen the Lord!" Thomas said to them, "Unless I see the scars of the nails in his hands and put my finger on those scars and my hand in his side, I will not believe."
Joh 20:26 A week later the disciples were together again indoors, and Thomas was with them. The doors were locked, but Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you."
Joh 20:27 Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here, and look at my hands; then reach out your hand and put it in my side. Stop your doubting, and believe!"
Joh 20:28 Thomas answered him, "My Lord and my God!"
Joh 20:29 Jesus said to him, "Do you believe because you see me? How happy are those who believe without seeing me!"
Joh 20:30 In his disciples' presence Jesus performed many other miracles which are not written down in this book.
Joh 20:31 But these have been written in order that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through your faith in him you may have life.
