Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Suddenly Jesus met them and gave them greetings. They approached Him and took hold of His feet [and knelt] to worship Him.
Thomas replied to Him, "My Lord and my God."
You heard me say to you, 'I am going away and I am returning to you.' If you [really] loved me, you would have been happy that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I am.
Yet I am telling you the truth: It will be helpful to you for me to go away. For unless I go, the Helper [i.e., the Holy Spirit] will not come to you. But if I go, I will send Him to you.
1 Peter 1:8
Although you have not seen Jesus, you [still] love Him and believe in Him, and this causes you to have an indescribable, glorious joy.
