Did Jesus’ Appearance to the Disciples in John 20:19 Help Thomas see Him as God?

The purpose of this post is to briefly examine the impact that the previous appearances and disappearance of Jesus would have had on Thomas’ understanding as to who he was. It will be shown that supernatural disappearance of Jesus in Luke 24:31 and the supernatural appearance in Luke 24:36/John 19:19 would have contributed to Thomas’ confession of Jesus as God. The appearance of Jesus in the latter two passages will also be demonstrated to have been despite locked doors – something that helps explain Thomas’ request for physical proof.
