Were Concealed Weapons Standard Practice for Men During Jesus’ Time? April 12, 2018

In Luke 22:47-53, Ever wondered where Peter got that sword from when he chopped off that guy’s ear?

“But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.”
