Doubting Thomas

The header you see above is a portion of the painting “My Lord and my God,” based on the Gospel for the second Sunday of Easter, by Malaysian artist, Hanna Cheriyan Vaghese. I found this over at The Text This Week website, where you can discover a veritable treasure trove of art here 

The apostle Thomas is likely a kindred spirit to many of us, we would rather see before we believe. However, I think Thomas has gotten a bit of a bum wrap with the label “Doubting Thomas,” for all of the other disciples were likely equally as clued out and sceptical until the resurrected Christ visited them.
