Thomas

One of the twelve disciples of Jesus who is remembered for doubting then believing in the resurrection. 

Background

Thomas, also called the Twin (Didymus in Greek), was one of Jesus' twelve disciples. Several days after Jesus' death, Thomas refused to believe that Jesus had risen, insisting that he have proof. A week later the risen Jesus appeared and showed Thomas the wounds in his hands and side, evoking Thomas's confession of faith, "My Lord and my God!" (John 20:24-29).
