25 Names of Christ: Prince of Peace

Isaiah prophesied that the coming Messiah would be called “The Prince of Peace”.

To attribute the title of ‘Prince’ to Jesus Christ is wholly appropriate, given that he is the Son of the Most High God. Prince of Peace, however, speaks to more than the Savior’s royal standing in the Kingdom of Heaven, and the peace that he offers, is not necessarily the absence of war and strife.

In the Gospel of John, we find Jesus teaching His Apostles about His peace:

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)

His peace is not the absence of trials and suffering, it is the means through which we are able to endure such things. We can live in turbulent times, much like the storm upon the waters of Galilee, but our hearts and minds can be as still as those same waters following His command “Peace, be still”. (Mark 4:39)

President Nelson taught:

“Personal challenges come. A father may have lost his job. A young mother may have learned of a grave illness. A son or a daughter may have gone astray. Whatever may cause the worry, each of us yearns to find inner peace. My message… pertains to the only source of true and lasting peace, Jesus the Christ—our Prince of Peace.”
