What does Thomas call Jesus in John 20:28? What do the Jehovah's Witnesses think Thomas called Jesus here?

John 20:28. Here Thomas calls Jesus, "My Lord and my God." (Same in the NWT). Ask the JW's, Who did Thomas come to believe that Jesus was?

It would have been blasphemy for Jesus to accept the title of God, if he was not God. Wouldn't Jesus have rebuked Thomas immediately for his words if they were not true!?

    "Lord and my God"

    very easy to see and still not everyone can see it because they have been trained to not see the truth.

    I think the JW argument is that Thomas is not calling Jesus God, but rather referring to Jehovah.

    My Lord (Jesus) and my God (Jehovah).

    I think that is what I was told.

    JESUS tells EVERYONE who HE is THROUGHOUT the ENTIRE WORD of GOD

    For HE is the WORD of GOD

    and HE IS GOD........

    THROUGHOUT

    FROM Genesis to Revelations

    the Entire BIBLE is Written about HIM

    ""Behold in the VOLUME of the BOOK it SPEAKS of ME""

    Jesus showed ""ALL"" He is GOD

    His disciples Knew it

    and HIS enemies Knew It and called Him a Blasphemer for it

    And even TODAY HE reveals HIMSELF to the Believer

    FOR WHO HE IS

    And if they Dont Know who HE IS

    THEY are not of HIM !!

    No matter the ""christian"" label they TRY and wear !!

    IF YOU DONT KNOW GOD

    and WHO He is.....YOU DONT HAVE HIM !!!

    Its time the TRUTH was Told and Bluntley and stop this

    go to a building learn mans doctrines and traditions and teachings and call Yourself Saved ...and NOT know who SAVED YOU ???

    IF YOU dont know God and JESUS IS GOD

    YOU dont have HIM on the inside nor His Spirit or His Word

    WHOM HE IS.............

    NO matter what Name is above YOUR doors

    or what YOU THINK

    GODS WORD says WHO HE IS

    and WHAT ONE MUST DO and BE

    and if that dont Add up

    NEITHER DO YOU !!!

    This answer isnt towards the questioner ,

    but those who seem to answer it without TRUTH !!!

    Thomas KNEW WHO GOD WAS

For ALL JW's, MORMONS , Catholics , Baptist , Protestant , Church of God , Church of Christ , church of this and church of that..........GET OUT OF THE WORLDLEY TRADITIONS and MANS TRADITIONS

    Jesus never said anywhere in the bible that he was God, although he did often speak of God as his father. It was always someone else who referred to Jesus as God. He didn't answer when he was about to be crucified, that's very telling.
