New Defender's Study Bible Notes

3:16 Lord of peace. This is the only New Testament occurrence of the appellation “Lord of peace.” However, God is called “the God of peace” several times (Romans 15:33; Philippians 4:9; I Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:20). He is the one who both creates peace and sustains it in the believer’s soul. He is not only “the Lord of peace,” but also “the Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6), “the God of peace” (Romans 16:20); the Author of peace (I Corinthians 14:33), and “the King of peace” (Hebrews 7:2). In fact, “He is our peace” (Ephesians 2:14) and someday “shall speak peace unto the heathen” (Zechariah 9:10) and see that of “peace there shall be no end” (Isaiah 9:7).
