One of the Disciples Interrupted Him

Seeing the crowds, Jesus went up the mountain. And when he was seated his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak to them. This is what he taught them:

“You have heard how it was said, Take an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. But I say this to you: Offer no resistance to the wicked.”

Then one of the disciples interrupted him. “But, Master, what if a bad guy breaks into our home, or tries to rape our wife and daughter? What about Hitler?”

Jesus looked at them and sighed, then went back down the mountain. They shouted after him, “The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, Jesus!”
