Images for the Second Sunday of Easter

The primary text for this Sunday is John 20: 19-31 where Jesus first appears to the rest of the disciples and then a second time when Thomas is present. Known by a lot of people as the ‘doubting Thomas’ story which is unfortunate since doubt, although there in most English translations, is not there in the Greek but that is a whole long story. Here are a few of the images for the week.
