Put Your Sword Away

Mar 26, 2023    Pastor Steve Swinburne

Jesus radically engages with those who come to arrest him in the Garden of Gethsemane. His disciple, Peter, draws his sword to defend Jesus, but Jesus rebukes him saying, "Put your sword away." We can become misguided, like Peter, believing that we need to defend Jesus, but the gospel invites us to engage through peace.
