John 20:26-29 (NLT)
26 Eight days later the disciples were together again, and this time Thomas was with them. The doors were locked; but suddenly, as before, Jesus was standing among them. He said, “Peace be with you.” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don’t be faithless any longer. Believe!”
28 “My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed.
29 Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who haven’t seen me and believe anyway.”
TIME OF DAY:
Unspecified in Bible narrative.
Soft light from above illuminates this scene.
From left to right: Thomas (also called Didymus), the resurrected Jesus the Christ.
There are two versions of this scene:
01) (This page) John 20 – Jesus appears to Thomas – Scene 02 – Thomas believes (Version 01).
02) (Next page) John 20 – Jesus appears to Thomas – Scene 02 – Thomas believes (Version 02).
The only difference between these versions are the radiating light lines coming from the figure of Jesus the Christ in the first one.
This is a fairly simple scene. I didn’t want to clutter it up with furniture and irrelevant details. I have simply included a door and walls to establish that this event takes place inside the locked room of verse 26. In fact I have “borrowed” the background from another scene (Mark 16 – Resurrection of Jesus – Scene 07 – Disbelief) and simply flipped it horizontally!
I drew the two figures in this scene recently for a lady in the United States, who wanted them on a T-shirt. I thought I’d add the background and upload it as a completed Bible Cartoon. The colours of the figures skin, hair and clothing has long been established in other Gospel drawings I have done.
