Chrystus jest naszym pokojem (por. Ef 2,14). Wizja pokoju w Liście do Efezjan
Christ is Our Peace (Eph 2,14). Concept of Peace in the Letter of St. Paul to Ephesians
The analyzed perycope of the Letter to Ephesians is one of the nicest and theologically richest texts about the peace in whole the Bible. It presents the peace as result of the reconciliation of the men mutually and with God at the same time. The concept of peace used here has a broader sense, typical of the Bible. It means not only the lack of the war, but also full agreement, harmony and communion with God and with the men. The Letter to the Ephesians is showing us, that the authentic peace includes a profound renovation of the interpersonal relations among men and with God. The reconciliation made by Christ is valid help for reaching the true peace also in the contemporaneous world.
