Dr. Couch, what is going on in Ephesians 6:23?
ANSWER: The verse reads: "Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ."
The "Peace" and the "love with faith" both come from the Father and from the Son. Paul means that love is associated with faith. Love connected with trust, faith, bathes the relationship of the believers. And this is coming from the Father and the Son. We are not to have just simple love, but we are to have love that is bound together with Christian trust. This is not plain love. Thus, it is Godly peace and love! It may read "peace and love" with Christian faith both come from the Father and Son.
Believers are not to have ordinary peace and love. "Faith is presupposed as being the believers" bestowed by the Father and Son.--Alford
This makes Christianity unique!
Thanks for asking.
