Many other Signs

John 20: 30-31

Jesus visited the disciples other times after his resurrection.  After the account of Jesus showing himself to the Apostle Thomas, in the Bible’s gospel of John, it says:

And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:

But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

What do you think?

  • Why did Jesus continue to visit his disciples at this time?
  • Why were some visits and “signs” not written about?
  • “Many other signs” is interesting to think about – what kind of things would Jesus have done that aren’t written?
  • Would having more signs written in the Bible help us believe more than we do now?
  • Do you think there is enough written about Jesus for us to believe and have faith in Him?
  • What does it mean for these things to be written “that believing ye might have life through his name?”
