Jesus Shows His Scars – Jesus shows His Scars, wounds to His disciples to show them He was who He says He is. These scars are also a reminder of His payment for us. What He did for us on the Cross! #Scars #Easter
“Reach right here with your finger, and see My hands and attain right here your hand and place it into My side and do not be unbelieving, but believing.”
Jesus Christ mentioned to Thomas (See John 20:27 NASB)
He showed them these wounds or recognized as scars due to the fact they didn’t think. You can see the story in John 20. See that section under. Of course, this was when Jesus Christ was resurrected. Doubting Thomas wouldn’t think unless he could see and touch the scars of Jesus.
Just like the song, Scars by I am They, we will have to be thankful for these scars. These scars are a reminder of the we had been purchased with a a price tag. Jesus paid it all! That is what Easter is about. Jesus dying to save the youngsters of God.
But He was pierced by way of for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities
The chastening for our nicely-getting fell upon Him,
And by His scourging we are healed.
By these scars of Jesus …
- Healed Us
- Sealed Us
- Redeemed Us
- Forgave us
- Bore our punishment
- and a great deal extra!
Without having these scars, we would have nothing at all. It was completed, completed! Sin and death has no victory of the saved, born once more.
When we go to heaven, we will have a glorified new physique. No extra discomfort, sin, scars, and so on. On the other hand, when we are in heaven, I think we will nevertheless see Jesus with His scars. These scars will serve as a reminder to all of us what He did.
Jesus amongst His Disciples
19 So when it was evening on that day, the very first day of the week, and when the doors had been shut exactly where the disciples had been, for worry of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and *mentioned to them, “[bPeace be with you.” 20 And when He had said this, He showed them both His hands and His side. The disciples then rejoiced when they saw the Lord. 21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them and *said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained.”
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called [dDidymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples were saying to him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
26 After eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus *came, the doors having been [fshut, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.” 27 Then He *said to Thomas, “Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing.” 28 Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” 29 Jesus *said to him, “Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.”
John 20:19-29 NASB
I recommend reading the whole book of John, not just 20th chapter.
