I had a discussion today with my fiance concerning my opinions/emotions concerning conflict. Long story short, she replied the following:
"It always struck me as odd Jesus had others fight for him and than would rebuke them, but if they didn't fight, he would have been hurt."
I can only think of one story, the story of Peter in the Garden, where Jesus was under direct physical threat and someone assaulted on His behalf. What are the other stories? Are there other stories I've someone missed or misread?
I think you need to ask her where she gets this impression from, because it certainly doesn't tally with mine at all. And Christ wasn't exactly worried about getting hurt was He? I mean given that He voluntarily endured Crucifixion.
