The word which he sent (ton logon on apesteilen). Many ancient MSS. (so Westcott and Hort) read merely ton logon apesteilen (he sent the word). This reading avoids the anacoluthon and inverse attraction of logon to the case of the relative on (which). Preaching good tidings of peace through Jesus Christ (euaggelizomeno eirhnhn dia Ihsou Cristou). Gospelizing peace through Jesus Christ. There is no other way to have real peace between individuals and God, between races and nations, than by Jesus Christ. Almost this very language occurs in Ephesians 2:17 where Paul states that Jesus on the cross "preached (gospelized) peace to you who are afar off and peace to you who are near." Peter here sees what Paul will see later with great clearness. He is Lord of all (outo estin pantwn kurio). A triumphant parenthesis that Peter throws in as the reason for his new truth. Jesus Christ is Lord of all, both Jews and Gentiles.
