As I read the prophetic book of Nahum, I see a familiar sounding passage:
“Look, there on the mountains, the feet of one who brings good news, who proclaims peace!” (See Nahum 1:15a.)
I find a similar text in Isaiah:
“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace…” (See Isaiah 52:7.)
The book of Romans even quotes Isaiah:
“As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” (See Romans 10:15.)
But these are not what I am thinking of. Knowing that “good news” means “gospel,” I do some searching and find:
“Your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.” (See Ephesians 6:15.)
I get excited when I see themes repeated throughout the Bible; it adds emphasis and reinforces the timelessness of the message.
May we all be people who bring peace.
