Reading this passage I found myself asking why would Jesus command His disciples around the passover table to sell their cloaks and buy swords? The disciples seem to take it quite literrally saying that they had two swords already. Perhaps they thought this was the time when they were going to lead a rebellion against the Roman Government. Peter later used one of these swords to cut off the ear of a man who came to arrest Jesus. Jesus rebuked Peter for this. I was thinking perhaps the sword that Jesus is talking about here is Gods’ Word, the Bible. This is the primary way God communicates to us today and it is often refered to later in scripture as a sword. Another option is the Holy Spirit but that doesn’t fit with the frame, because you can’t “purchase” the Holy Spirit. What does everyone else think on this?
