Great poem, with some thought-provoking ideas. From a technical point of view I enjoyed the stanzas which were more clearly free-verse than those which came closer to traditional rhyming poetry. My opinion - you should stick with free verse for this subject. Powerful writing.
This second stanza grabbed me:

"Thomas,
twin in Aramaic,
Didymus,
twin in Greek.
twin-twin
a mystery within."

The "legend" leading beyond the image of doubter also hit me. I read this several times....

I'm captivated by the content and by the method. I also read this work several times.
