The climax of the scene takes place when Jesus takes with his left hand the wrist of the apostle to show him the wound opened by the spear of a Roman soldier on the Cross. "Take up your hand: Put it on my side, and let it not be an unbeliever, but a man of faith," says Jesus to Thomas. "It is not a reproach, it is sweetness," and Thomas responds: "My Lord and my God!" According to tradition, Thomas evangelized peoples of the East until arriving in India, where he died martyr, pierced by a spear.
