One of the central themes of Advent and Christmas is Peace.  Peace is a thread running throughout the prophets’ predictions of the coming Messiah and his coming again.  When baby Jesus arrived that first Christmas, the angels announced that he would bring “Peace on earth.”

But what is this Peace in our war-torn world and in our discontented human hearts?  Most of us seek Peace in our circumstances, but the Bible teaches that Peace comes through a Person.  This Advent and Christmas we will reflect on Bible texts where God promised that the coming Messiah was the coming of Peace.  The aim of this series is to clarify this coming Peace and assure us that with the coming of Jesus, we have the Peace we long for.
