John 20:1A and 2-8

The reaction of each person varies as he comes to believe that the Lord has risen. Mary initially thinks his body has been stolen. Peter is confused. Later in the chapter we see that Thomas wants physical evidence. John, the beloved disciple, believes with little or no concrete proof. John the Evangelist is using the reaction of these central characters to show how his community might react initially to the good news. Some may never find their way to the truth.

You loved each one of these people in their doubts, in their faith. You love me unconditionally, too, and I am so grateful.
