...peacemaking manifesto ( Yoder Neufeld, 2011 ). Most significant is Paul’s virtually unique appellation, “God of peace” ( Rom 15:33 ; 16:20 ; 1 Cor 14:33 ; 2 Cor 13:11 ; 1 Thess 5:23 ; 2 Thess 3:16 ; Phil 4:9 ; exception: T. Dan . 5:2). “God of peace” also introduces Hebrews’ benediction ( 13:20 ) and is linked to God’s eternal covenant . “The God of peace will shortly crush Satan under your feet” ( Rom 16:20 ) startlingly blends “God of peace” with imagery of battle against Satan.

...aggada (or haggadah), denoting the remainder. Halakha controls the way of life, while aggada need not affect life fundamentally. The distinction, if not the names, are ancient. Comparing the Decalogue in Exodus 20:2–17 with Deuteronomy 6:6–21 , one finds that the only major difference comes at the end of the commandment about the sabbath ( Exod 20:11 vs. Deut 6:15 ), to explain why one keeps the sabbath, but the difference does not affect how one keeps it.
