“… Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, ‘Peace be with you.’” This is the first time the Apostles have seen the Risen Lord. The last time they saw Him, all had run away in fear. Peter had denied Him three times. John was present at the foot of the cross, but he too had run away at Jesus’ arrest. All of them were terrified, yet Jesus reassures them with words of love. No matter what we do, Jesus will bring us peace if we turn to Him.
