Why don't you clear it up then, and show us which scripture Jesus defended himself from his aggressors.
John 8:59 So they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.
John 10:39 Again they sought to arrest him, but he escaped from their hands.
Luke 4:29-30 And they rose up and drove him out of the town and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they could throw him down the cliff. But passing through their midst, he went away.
And his most damning condemnation for even self defense:
Luke 9:23-25 “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?"
