Man, I never thought about Jesus disciples having swords. You don't see that in the pictures in Sunday school. But somebody had to have one if they cut off some dude's ear.
I think verse 56 must have been one of the saddest moments for Jesus. I don't think that was prophesied, so I bet he was just like I can't believe they left me. I'm sure they were just worried about themselves, but to think that after all of those times of them saying that they would go with Jesus to their deaths, it was all just talk. Makes me hope that I would be something more. Able to really stand up for something, even when it really threatened me. JM
