Discussion for Matthew 26:52

  • If it says , "with the sword ", could that mean that we will ultimately perish in the second death if we are violent? So what I mean is,swords will rust away, and if we are to perish "with " the sword, will we rot away in hell? There is a big difference between by and with lol. I am confused! Someone please help, do we know what the original word was? Thanks in advance!
