The order that was in the Bible was not fully unerstood, as the writers who use quill and ink in writing the Bible were true men of God, who would question the doubting of Thomas!

I guess he may have been one of the earliest scapegoats, who were
seen to believers in the power of God.
They did not believe anything until it was proven to them and their
minds would see the power of God.

What real man can walk into battle and knows he will survive?
It is you my man, and can you do it, says he to Thomas, and
Thomas replied! Did you mistake me as beimg your Creator my
Lord!

I never doubted you my son, said the Lord,

Some of the answers to your question are contained in the post by user EGL above. The chapter and verse I cannot provide. Perhaps someone else can.

This text isn't in the canon of books accepted as authoritative by the early Church. That doesn't mean it's any more or less likely to reflect what jesus actually said; it just didn't suit the early church fathers, perhaps because it doesn't tell a coherent story and instead just lists various sayings attributed to Jesus.

All the sayings in this text are numbered, so you can find whatever saying you want in any translation. This one is no. 70.

Much love,
Larry

Some christian churchs consider The Gospel of Thomas to be one of the "Gnostic Gospels". As far as I know the reason it was not included in the cannon is that it expressed teachings that were thought to be in conflict with what Jesus taught and was thought not to be inspired by God. That does not mean that the Gospel of Thomas is false. I judge one should be careful with what it contains. There are other such writtings that have been known about since the time when the Cannon was assembled but were not included. Some of these I have read parts of and some contain very different ideas about Jesus and some of the apostles.

Thanks for the tip as you could probably notice I did not know that.
