And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
Jesus went beyond the Law to a higher righteousness by abolishing retaliation altogether. He showed His disciples, that, whereas revenge was once legally permissible, now non-resistance was graciously possible. If any sue for another’s coat, the one being sued was to surrender their cloak as well. We are not to offer any resistance to anyone.
