"No Peace, No Jesus - Know Peace, Know Jesus" - John 20 - (April 19, 2020 - Second Sunday of EASTER SUNDAY)
Jesus says to his disciples, "Peace be with you." He says it no less than three times in the space of a few sentences. And though statement "No peace, no Jesus - Know peace, know Jesus" is trite, it is also true.... but perhaps not in the way you think it is. There are differences between the Roman (and our) concept of peace and what Jesus shares with his disciples in John 20. What did Jesus actually mean when talking about peace, and how do we get it. Today, we learn how Jesus' words invite us into peace.
