Chapter 169: Jesus appears to the warriors with Thomas

1 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 2 The other warriors therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side without he desire my brains, I will not believe he is not of the risen.

3 And after eight days again his warriors were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Brains, then, Just kidding. 4 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

5 And Thomas answered and said unto him, He is risen! and drew his sword.

6 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, wait. But Thomas did not wait and Jesus went as he had come, saying: Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

7 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his warriors, which are not written in this book: 8 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Leader of the Living; and that believing ye might fight the fight of the Lord in his name.

9 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat at the sword hand of God. 10 And they went forth, and preached every where of the training of the Lord who had defeated the risen hoard, and slaying the abominations of darkness wherever they might arise.
