Peter cuts off a ear, Luke 22:49-51


Peter uses a sword to cut an ear off one of the men who came to arrest Jesus.

Perter was again putting his actions into play before thinking of the consequences.
Peter was a fisherman not a soldier, he was the brother of Andrew another of Jesus’ disciples.

What was thinking he was surrounded by a lot of armed soldiers.

Jesus once again calms the situation for His hot headed friend Peter.
