John 20:28 and Thomas

John 20:28 “And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.”

Jehovah’s Witnesses like to explain this verse by distinguishing between Lord and God, as Jesus presumably looks first at Jesus, and then lifts up his eyes to God in heaven:

My Lord: Jesus

My God: God the Father (looking up to Heaven)

But the first part of the phrase states that “Thomas . . . said unto him”, which means Jesus. So Thomas called Jesus “God”.

In the writings of Peter, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are distinct as indeed they are in the rest of the New Testament. Yet, at the same time, Jesus is portrayed as fully divine, as is the Holy Spirit. Over time, and after much discussion, the church developed the doctrine of the Trinity to explain as well as possible the divine mystery of the Godhead. Seventh-day Adventists include the doctrine of the Trinity as one of their 28 fundamental beliefs. Thus, we see in Peter a clear depiction of Jesus as not only the Messiah but as God Himself. (For example, Father/Son: 1 Pet. 1:3, 2 Pet. 1:17; Holy Spirit: 1 Pet. 1:12, 2 Pet. 1:21.) Continue reading “Sabbath School Lesson for”
