Panel 16 - Gad is resurrected and reconciles his brother to Thomas

 © Stuart Whatling, 2008

Gad's untimely death had delayed the execution of Thomas while the funeral rites were observed. On the fourth day, Gad suddenly sits up in his coffin and tells the startled court what happened while he was dead and of the heavenly palace he saw (panel 14). The King immediately relents and begs forgiveness of the Apostle.
