From Mark and Linda WellsMonroeTo the editor,April 8 is celebrated by Christians around the globe as Easter Sunday, sometimes called Resurrection Sunday. According to the Scriptures (Bible) Jesus Christ was crucified unto death and rose unto life by many infallible proofs. One account is in the Gospel of John, chapter 20, of doubting Thomas who witnessed Jesus suffering and agonizing death by being nailed to a Roman cross.Thomas was not present when the other disciples told him they had seen their resurrected Lord, consequently he did not believe their account.
