Interesting to say the least.
Particularly when you read verses 49 -51, it becomes apparent that Jesus told his disciples to buy swords to teach them to not use them.

49 When Jesus’ followers saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, should we strike with our swords?” 50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.

51 But Jesus answered, “No more of this!” And he touched the man’s ear and healed him.
