I recently read a novel (Inside, Outside by Herman Wouk) about Jewish life in America, and I learned this Hebrew phrase. It is from the final words of the Kaddish, a prayer for the dead and it means, “He will make peace.” It made me think about how Jesus does that for us. He speaks about it in what has been called the High Priestly Prayer, in the book of John, Chapter 17.
First of all, through His sacrifice, He makes peace between us and God. He prays
“…that they may all be one, just as you, the Father are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us …John 17: 21
He also makes peace between all believers as He brings us into His body, the church:
“The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one, even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may be perfectly one.” John: 17:22-23
What a gift! He has made peace. Yasseh shalom.
