This week's lectionary takes us into the Gospel of John and the story of Thomas, called the twin.

"So the other disciples told him, 'We have seen the Lord.' But Thomas said to them, 'Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and my hand in his side, I will not believe.'"

No doubt, what we see, what we look at, what we focus on, can have a profound impact on the choices we make, the direction we move in, and the people we become.

Along that train of thought I found this video with scholar N.T. Wright.  Check it out, and if you have an extra minute I'd highly recommend his article, "Where People Get Scripture Wrong."
