I Am the Man

The old Stanley Brothers tune has come a long way, but it’s still just the same arresting song it’s always been. I came across an excellent version of it today by an Englishman calling himself Neil Hankin — below.

Based on a true story, some say. From John, chapter 20 (and the Gospel reading at most Christian churches this morning):

Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
