The Peace of Christ

On the night of the resurrection, Jesus' disciples were gathered together in a house. It was the greatest, the happiest and the most victorious day in the history of the world. But where were the disciples? They were hiding in fear.
Suddenly and miraculously, Jesus came and stood among them. The doors were not open. John does not say how Jesus entered the room where the disciples were. What is certain is that he did not enter through an open door. He said, "Peace be upon you!" It was a common Jewish greeting, but it also had a deeper meaning. Jesus was referring to spiritual peace, which he had previously promised.
