Believe It, Jesus Lives!
This is the story from John 19-20 of how Thomas doubted that Jesus was risen, even though the other disciples saw him in a room. He needed to see Jesus and touch his wounds. When Jesus appeared again to the disciples, this time when Thomas was there, he told Thomas that those who believe without seeing are blessed. When reading this book, discuss how Jesus really is alive. He is alive today! And we can believe it even though we can't see Him or touch His wounds.
