Was Thomas the First Christian Scientist?
When told that Jesus had risen from the dead, Thomas replied, "Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe." Luke 20:25.
Doesn't this make Thomas the first Christian scientist?
Apparently no one gets the play on words "Christian Scientist."

Interestingly there is no evidence Thomas actually touches Jesus or puts his hands in his side in the exchange. Jesus appears and then all we have is Thomas’ reply next, and it is enough.
“My Lord and my God,” Thomas says

The fact of the matter; No, he was just unsaved at that point in his life that is why he said those things and when God The Holy Ghost baptized them with fire, then they all believed in God The Lord Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior holy word the bible only.Source(s): King James holy bible

No, he's known as "doubting Thomas" for his lack of faith.
