Jesus said turn the other cheek.

Would Jesus have used a gun? Why didn't he?

2. Walk away

The Jews were up against the greatest war machine on earth at the time when Jesus talked of forgiveness and humility.

But most people don't understand what Jesus, Gandhi and MLK did about the militant power of non-violence.

9. Admittedly this OP belongs in Religion forum

but to put your view of Jesus in context, biblically he is also the person who encouraged his followers to sell clothes to buy weapons.

3. But he was God.

 

he has all at his disposal. Sword from the mouth, not even a knife? Why wouldn't he use it?

Rev: 19:15 Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.

Jesus said to turn the other cheek, but didn't say what to do if they hit the other one.
