Grace and Peace: A General Overview of Divine Grace & Peace in the Scriptures


Instructor: Tim Hegg

A survey of the uses of the terms “grace” and “peace” in Greek and Hebrew. Tim will consider how these words are used in the Priestly Blessing of Numbers 6:24–26, their connection to the sacrificial offering and as a foreshadowing of the ultimate and final offering of the Lamb of God. He will then investigate the biblical meaning of “grace” in the Tanach: חֵן (chein) as “grace” and “favor” and in the Apostolic Scriptures as a gift of God, not something a sinner can earned or purchase. Finally, Tim will survey the texts in the Apostolic Scriptures which utilize the combination “grace and peace”.
