The doubting disciple Thomas is called upon to convince himself of the physical resurrection of Christ (the flag of Easter is clearly visible) by touching the wound in the Lord’s side (John 20:24−29). Static elements found in a devotional picture – the figure of Christ turned head-on to face the devout – are linked with the dramatic tale of amazement and fear as experienced by the disciples.
