Bible Commentary for Luke 22:38

Wesley's Notes for Luke 22:38


22:38 Here are two swords - Many of Galilee carried them when they travelled, to defend themselves against robbers and assassins, who much infested their roads. But did the apostles need to seek such defence? And he said; It is enough - I did not mean literally, that every one of you must have a sword.


People's Bible Notes for Luke 22:38


Lu 22:38 Here [are] two swords. How they come to be in their possession is not told. It is enough. This is a dismissal of the subject, not a warrant for their use. That was rebuked when Peter resorted to one (Mt 26:52-54).
