Phinehas

Gethsemane and Genesis

"With that, one of Jesus' companions reached for his sword, drew it out and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear. 'Put your sword back in its place,' Jesus said to him, 'for all who draw the sword will die by the sword...'" -Matthew 26:51-52

Was Jesus referring to Genesis 9:6?

"Whoever sheds man's blood,
By man his blood shall be shed;
For in the image of God
He made man."
