Information about Thomas
The following info

one of the twelve (Matthew 10:3; Mark 3:18, etc.). He was also
called Didymus (John 11:16; 20:24), which is the Greek equivalent of
the Hebrew name. All we know regarding him is recorded in the fourth
Gospel (John 11:15,16; 14:4,5; 20:24,25,26-29). From the
circumstance that in the lists of the apostles he is always
mentioned along with Matthew, who was the son of Alphaeus (Mark
3:18), and that these two are always followed by James, who was also
the son of Alphaeus, it has been supposed that these three, Matthew,
Thomas, and James, were brothers.

character from the Bible and provided a biography and character outline
of this famous person.
Much of the information is taken from
the classic reference books including
