In v. 17 Matthew says, “When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.” I wonder if he was talking about Thomas, or if there were more than just him. Matthew says “some.” That would imply more than just Thomas.
I think that there were more. In verse 18 Jesus says to them “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth”. If i take this correctly that means the Satan has no authority on earth. We have free will so we can give Satan power over us but Satan has no power over us unless we give Satan that power. Saying the devil made me do it sounds like a wonderful excuse but the devil cannot make us do anything. Church is about making disciples and teaching us to observe all things that Jesus has commanded us.
