The followers of "the Law" did not lack in their demand for justice. By the time Of Christ their justice demanded not an eye-for-an-eye, but severe retribution that did not fit the crime.

The closest thing I can think of is in Luke 22, where Jesus says Luke 22:36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.

I agree with the general consensus here that there probably isn't a great deal of meaningful semantic distinction between Χριστὸς Ἰησοῦς and Ἰησοῦς Χριστὸς.

In NT Greek, the dative form of Ἰησοῦς is Ἰησοῦ, identical in form with the genitive.1 This leads ...
