This story also tells us about how Jesus wants us to act when someone attacks us or bullies us for our faith. We learned that Peter took out his sword to defend Jesus and he used violence against his attackers. Jesus didn’t like this. Instead Jesus responded to the attackers with love and words.
When we feel attacked or afraid we shouldn’t respond with violence or fighting.
Instead, when we can, we should use our words and respond with love and understanding.
