The Hebrew term shalom is full of meaning in the Bible. Generally speaking, it means “peace” and is one of the key themes for salvation in the Bible. In the OT, the Hebrew term refers most commonly to a person being safe, whole, and sound. In the NT, shalom is revealed as the reconciliation of all things to God through the person and work of Jesus Christ.
In this session, we will talk about how Christians can experience shalom with God, shalom with others, shalom with(in) oneself, and Jesus Christ, who is the Prince of shalom or Peace. Finally, we will discuss how the theme of shalom can shape our lives in our present world full of turmoil.
