Preface - They that condemnn sin in others, and are guilty of the same themselves, cannot escape God's judgment; which will be according to every man's deserts, without distinction of Jew or Gentile. The Gentiles are not left without a rule of conduct. The Jew, who boasteth of greater light, is doubly criminal in sinning against it; nor will circumcision profit him, except he keep the law.

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. - John 20 vs 26-28

That one was Thomas. But now, when Christ came in, when He revealed Himself a crucified but risen Redeemer, when He showed His special kindness to Thomas, the heart of Thomas could stand out no longer, and he cried out, in words of appropriating faith, before all: 'My Lord, and my God.'
