"For Christ is our peace; in his flesh he has made both groups into one and has broken down the dividing walls of hostility between us…. So he came and proclaimed peace to you who were far off and peace to you who were near; for through him both of us have access in one Spirit to the Father" (Eph. 2: 14-18)
