He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one"
"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword".
When reading the above quotes from the bible - Luke 22.36 and Matthew 10 34, Does Jesus really mean for them to use violence with swords? Or is there more to the verses, like context?
