21 "Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. 22 All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. 23 When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. I tell you the truth, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes. 39 Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. If one flees persecution, are they not "finding" their life? At what point should one flee persecution and remain to be martyred? This appears contradictory on the surface.
