John 14:22–27 KJV 1900
22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? 23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me. 25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. 27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Peace i leave with you, my peace i give you

PEACE (שָׁלוֹם, shalom; εἰρήνη, eirēnē). A pervasive concept in the Bible that most commonly relates to a relationship of love and loyalty with God and one another.

The Lexham Bible Dictionary In the Old Testament

In the Old Testament, “peace” carries the fundamental meaning of welfare, prosperity, or wholeness as well as the absence of hostility (compare Westermann, “Peace [Shalom],” 20, 44–53). The term is frequently used as the antithesis of harm (רָעָה, ra'ah; compare 1 Sam 20:7; Jer 29:11; 38:4) and as a synonym for what is good (טוֹב, tov; Deut 23:6; Ezra 9:12; Jer 33:9).

Peace in greetings and farewells , (salute)
The Lexham Bible Dictionary Peace in Greetings and Farewells

Peace in Greetings and Farewells

The biblical characters use the term “peace” in friendly greetings and farewell statements to communicate an absence of hostility. For example, when his brothers are unsure whether he will exact retribution on them for having extra money in their sacks, Joseph assures them of his friendly disposition toward them by stating, “Peace to you; do not fear”

Peace in the sense of welfare
In terms of how a person is doing you know that question we ask each other but really don’t want to know the answer. how is going, how are you doing today. (then we realize our polite gesture was opened a door we just don't have time for)
Peace in the absence of Hostility
this is the meaning that we mostly associate with peace oh but it definitely sells out the true meaning of peace for only a portion of what Jesus truly intends for us to have in our lives.
Peace in Relationships
The Lexham Bible Dictionary Peace in Relationships

In the Old Testament, the term “peace” is often used to describe a relationship characterized by friendship, care, loyalty, and love. These relationships can be with God or between people. A close friend in the Old Testament is commonly called “a man of my peace” (Pss 7:4; 41:9; Jer 20:10; 38:22; Obad 7)

The Lexham Bible Dictionary Covenant of Peace

Covenant of Peace

Peace with God and one another is fundamental to the promises of Israel’s restoration and the new creation. Isaiah 32:15–18 promises that when the Spirit, who is the sign of the new age, is poured out, He will create righteousness and peace. God has future plans of peace for His people (Jer 29:11); peace will characterize the new temple (Hag 2:9) and Jerusalem (Jer 33:9), whose inhabitants will “love truth and peace” (Zech 8:19). In the Genesis creation account, the narrative revolves around the notion of peace—the creation and maintenance of order and the reversal of disorder

(KJV 1900)
Romans 5:1–5 KJV 1900
1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Oh but this peace that is given by Jesus is the peace Isaiah spoke of is the the effect of righteousness,
this peace is the work of justice,
this peace is perfect peace , not dependent on situations or circumstances .
The peace
Peace should not be limited to just the times when absent of war, troubles, trials and tribulations,
This Peace is the peace that will keep you in the mist of your stress, strains and struggles.
Peace is not only ends fighting but it also restores and creates new beginnings
Peace not only stops the splinting of relationships but rebuilds and repairs the brokenhearted.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
the prophets prophesied and The angels declared at his birth
Luke 2:14 KJV 1900
14 Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, Good will toward men.

Messianic Peace

The most prevalent nuance to the concept of peace in the New Testament is the messianic peace accomplished by Christ and experienced by the Church (compare Acts 9:31). In the Old Testament, the concept of messianic peace referred to both the absence of hostilities and a reconciled relationship with God and others in the context of the new creation. This messianic peace comes to fruition in the New Testament in Jesus’ ministry

peace that heals the sick and brings sight to the blind
Peace that goes beyond all understanding
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Jesus achieved messianic peace by means of His death on the cross, which reconciled people to God and one another
