THOMAS

(thohm' uhss) Personal name from Hebrew meaning, “a twin.” One of the first twelve disciples of Jesus (Mark 3:18). The apocryphal book, The Acts of Thomas, uses the literal meaning of his name (“twin”) in making him the twin of Jesus Himself! His personality was complex, revealing a pessimism mixed with loyalty and faith (John 11:16). Thomas sought evidence of Jesus' resurrection (John 20:25), but when convinced of the miracle made an historic confession of faith (John 20:28). See Apocrypha, New Testament; Didymus; Disciples.
