John 16:33
לג אָמַרְתִּי לָכֶם אֶת הַדְּבָרִים הָאֵלֶּה כְּדֵי שֶׁבִּי יִהְיֶה לָכֶם שָׁלוֹם. בָּעוֹלָם –– צָרָה לָכֶם, אַךְ הִתְעוֹדְדוּ׃ אֲנִי נִצַּחְתִּי אֶת הָעוֹלָם.״

John 16:33
16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (KJV)

Yeshua, according to John 16:33, speaks about the peace that comes from faith, of acknowledging the reality of tribulations in the world, and to encouraging believers with the assurance that Yeshua has overcome the world. We note in the Torah the concept of peace through faith is emphasized in various places. For example, in Numbers 6:26, it says, “The LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.” This blessing speaks to the peace that comes from the presence and favor of God. The Torah is realistic about the presence of tribulation in the world. For example, in Deuteronomy 4:30, it says, “When you are in distress and all these things have happened to you, then in later days you will return to the LORD your God and obey him.” This verse acknowledges the reality of distress and tribulation, but also points to the hope of returning to the God of Israel. In Exodus 14:14, it says, “The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.” This verse speaks to the ultimate victory that belongs to the God of Israel, which is a parallel to the victory Yeshua speaks of in John 16:33.
