Is Jesus the Prince of Peace or a Sword Bearer?

Is Jesus the Prince of Peace of a sword bearer?

At the end of a counseling session this week, I reminded a client that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, so if we pick up the guilt and shame, just give it back to Him and leave it at the foot of the Cross. He has already forgiven us, and He gives us forgiveness, love and peace. He is The Prince of Peace (Is. 9:6).

Then I said that Jesus did not come to bring peace but a sword (Luke 12:51). We were both disturbed by this truth and I told my client I would do some research and share it this week. 

These are two biblically based videos that helped me reconcile how Jesus is the Prince of Peace  and Jesus came not to bring peace but division
