Peace

Almost two thousand years ago, on the hills of Judea, shepherds keeping watch over their flocks heard the angelic message of "On earth peace, good will toward men," heralding the birth of "the Prince of Peace." From earliest times men have sought to attain peace in various ways, but not until the coming of Jesus did they know how to attain this much desired state.

As we study the word "peace" we find that it is used over four hundred times in the Scriptures. Various root words with slight variations and derivations have been translated as peace. It is interesting to note that the word most frequently translated in the New Testament is ειρήνη, implying to set at-one again.
