John 20 - NIV

24 Now Thomas (also known as Didymus[a] ), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came.

25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”
But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”

Summary: If there is a poster boy for “doubting” it must be the Apostle Thomas. Thomas isn't mentioned often in Scripture, but there are examples for each of us in each instance. We've seen that he, like us, had his share of unsettling experiences.
