Prince of Peace

“. . . Judas, one of the twelve, came up accompanied by a large crowd with swords and clubs . . . (sound familiar?) . . . Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and seized Him.

“And behold, one of those who were with Jesus reached and drew out his sword, and struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his ear.

“Then Jesus said to him: ‘Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.”

“ Blessed are the poor in spirit . . . Blessed are those mourn . . . Blessed are the gentle, the meek . . . Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for what is right . . . Blessed are the merciful . . . Blessed are the pure in heart . . . Blessed are peacemakers . . . Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of what is right . . . Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.

“. . . I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, ‘You are good for nothing’ shall be guilty before the supreme court . . .”
