Thomas Was the First Disciple to Address Jesus as God…But the Synoptic Authors Didn’t Bother to Record this Event!

Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe.” Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” –John 20:27-28

 

Nowhere in the Gospels does one of the Twelve address Jesus as “God” until Thomas does so upon inspecting the wounds of the resurrected Jesus.  Wow!  A monotheistic Jew, for the first time in recorded history, recognizes that the Creator of the universe has come to earth in human flesh!  Yet, the authors of the Synoptic Gospels do not record this event!

Not important to their “themes”?

Get serious.  John’s tale of the resurrected Jesus exposing his wounds to Thomas is an invented story.  It is evidence that the author of John felt free to embellish the Jesus Story.  It is evidence that the Gospel authors were writing works of apologetics, not works of history.  It is evidence that the author of John was not an eyewitness.

The Gospels are not reliable sources of historical information.
