What's the Prince of Peace Doing With A Sword?

Jesus, the Prince of Peace makes this odd statement; "I did not come to bring peace, but a sword".  He then contextualizes this statement to the family!  Is Jesus calling for domestic abuse here?  And why does Jesus seem to contradict his other teachings about nonviolence?  In this teaching, Russ Hewett seeks to sort this out by showing the absolutely transformative nature of the gospel.  So transformative that it would cause division in the central building block of culture...the family.
