I do not know how many times in my forty years regular church attendance that I heard a misguided sermon about buying a sword
Most of them sounded like an early grassroots NRA movement for aggressive self-defense. But think about it: how are "two swords" for 12 apostles enough? To keep this brief or be a spoiler, Jesus was referring to Luke22:37: ‘And he was numbered among the lawless.' The prophecy needed to be fulfilled. Without weapons that would not be possible. If Jesus wanted an armed insurrection, telling his apostle to put away his sword was not very inspiring.
