Matthew 10:34

Matthew 10:34: “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.
Luke 12:49-53: “I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am till it is accomplished! Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division. For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three. Father will be divided against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”

John 16:33: These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Matthew and Luke say that Jesus came to earth to bring non-peace(the sword, fire, and division), but John says that Jesus came to earth to bring peace.

John is saying that we can have peace in Jesus despite the problems in the world. This doesn't conflict with the statements from Matthew and Luke.
