Finding Jesus Series

This giveaway is provided by Grace Hill Media.

The upcoming second season of Finding Jesus: Faith, Fact, Forgery premieres on CNN Sunday, March 5.

In case you didn’t get an opportunity to check-out the first season of this hit series, 
Finding Jesus: Faith, Fact Forgery captivated audiences as well-known Pastors, theologians, and archaeologists, examined famous religious artifacts, and brought to life the places, pilgrimage sites, and people from the Bible and ancient world. 

This season, one of our episodes focuses on Jesus’ disciple Thomas – or you may have heard of him as “doubting Thomas.”  But there is so much more to his life story.  His journey to overcome his doubts and fears, and to redeem himself by spreading the Gospel and message of love to a faraway place is an inspiration!  It’s also something we can all relate to - as each one of us at one point in our lives have had to struggle and overcome our own doubt and fears in order to fulfill a great challenge in our lives, or even during our faith journey.

How do you lean on your faith when you have doubts and challenges in your life? My big sis has been in the hospital, and I've been worried about her. Focusing on Scripture helps keep me grounded. My daughters and I joined a Scripture memory challenge, and the last verse I memorized was Psalm 37:8 
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret--it leads only to evil. (NIV)

  1. The story of Thomas has always encouraged me that God knows about our fears, and while He wants us to trust Him completely, He understands our frail humanity and our sometimes needing more encouragement to trust and follow Him.

  2. It reminds me that even though Thomas doubted, Jesus still cared for him and showed Thomas the wounds he asked for as proof. Even though we may doubt at times and let the problems of this world interfere with our faith, God is still a loving God who will come to us.

  3. I guess I see Thomas differently. He'd been hurt before, badly. He was grieving. His Savior had died. It wasn't enough to merely SEE Him, but Thomas needed to FEEL that His Savior was alive. My teacher brain goes to types of learners. I don't see Thomas as a visual learner, but a kinesthetic learner - he had to feel/do it to learn it. Sometimes seeing isn't believing - feeling is. We can see the words on the pages of our Bibles, but it's not until we feel the impact of those words on our lives that we truly believe.

  4. I know God has included everything (even the boring parts) in the Bible for a reason. I think Thomas' need to *know* Jesus lived shows us that God knows we will have doubts, even fears, ourselves. He understands. And He loves us anyway.

  5. I think the story of Thomas is very relevant in our world today. It seems sometimes that the whole world is doubting the validity of Jesus and even the Bible stories. We've probably all read the doubt that Jesus was even who he says he is. The stories about his walk, his behavior. The world even says why are there no miracles today; even though we who are Christians know that there are indeed miracles every day. Doubt is part of every day life in many ways, and we all wish we could always have concrete evidence of anything or any problems we are facing, i.e. will my children grow to a happy adulthood? will my car take me to where I want to go? will I get a pay raise? If there was evidence beforehand of any problem we are facing, there would be no such word as doubt. But, Jesus understands we humans so well that he even introduced Thomas to us so we know that even with all our doubts, we can lean on Jesus, and like Thomas, if needed, he can in some way give us the proof that we need. I think Jesus knows there is a doubting Thomas in everyone.
