Thomas, Tuesday January 23, 30 CE

A whole week since I managed to record anything in my diary.  Our progress has continued to be slow, although the mission is going really well again.  It almost feels like the good old days around Capernaum.  It’s just that I can’t afford to wait for the end of the tour before going home, and I’ve told Jesus I have to desert him.  I’ve given him plenty of new material to use, and I know Peter and Matthew will keep him under control.  Simon’s been really good since his return too, putting his energy and passion to good use in keeping us all going.  I’ve promised to travel with them to Jerusalem for Passover in a few weeks’ time, after I’ve spent some time with my family again.
