John 20:27 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Be not (μὴ γίνου)

Literally, become not. Thomas was in a fair way to become unbelieving, through his doubt of the resurrection.

Faithless - believing (ἄπιστος - πιστός)

There is a correspondence of the words here, to which, perhaps, the nearest approach in English is unbelieving, believing.
