What did Jesus mean when he said that he didn’t come to bring peace but a sword? By comparing cadence, context and the other gospels, we arrive at a proper understanding. Next, in one gospel, Jesus withdrew to a solitary place and in another he withdrew to Bethsaida. Is there a contradiction? Finally, Jesus fed 5000 and then 4000. What does this tell us about his mission? Was Jesus being rude to the Gentile woman by calling her a dog? What did this woman understand that Jesus was so impressed by?
