Shalom to You

This customary greeting, "Shalom to you," takes on new meaning when spoken by the risen Christ. Think about it: "They killed him, but he's not dead" sounds like the plot of a bad horror movie, wherein the victim returns to take bloody vengeance on all his enemies. So, imagine you're there among the disciples when Jesus shows up all of a sudden. After the gruesome injustice of Good Friday, he's ba-a-a-ack. He has every reason to be angry. Do you suppose he's out for revenge? Don't you wish you had put up a little more resistance? Don't you regret fleeing Gethsemane and leaving him to his fate? And if even the chains of death can't hold him, is there any terrible recompense beyond his powers? But no, he's not angry. He says, "Peace to you."
