Luke 22:49-51. Peter uses a sword to cut an ear off one of the men who came to arrest Jesus.
Peter 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 Peter thinking? He was surrounded by a lot of armed soldiers.
Jesus once again calms the situation for His hot-headed friend Peter.
Peter uses a sword
22:49 When those who were around Jesus saw what was about to take place, they asked, “Lord, should we attack with our swords?” 50 Then one of them struck the high priest’s servant, cutting off his right ear.
51 But Jesus said, “No more of this!” So he touched the wounded man’s ear and healed him.
Also read: Matthew 26:51-54, Mark 14:44-47, John 18:10-11.
