Isaiah 9:1-8; John 16:33

Isaiah prophesied about the future coming of the Prince of Peace. We know today that Prince is Jesus Christ. He is the author of real peace in our lives and the only one who can sustain it when times are difficult. When Jesus speaks of his death and the resulting suffering that will come for his friends, he tells them he is where they will find peace. The world will be full of tribulation, trials, and heartache, but Jesus is the one who has overcome the world. We can find rest and peace in him. When we read these passages in light of our understanding of the Hebrew and Greek word for peace, we know we find our greatest good in Jesus.
