Jesus’ Mission, In His Own Words



Matthew 5:17“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”

Matthew 9:13 – “But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Matthew 10:34“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.

Matthew 20:28 – “…just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Mark 2:17 – …On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Luke 4:43But he said, “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.”

Luke 19:10 – “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.”

John 3:17 – “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”

John 9:39Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.”

John 10:10 – “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

John 12:27“Now my heart is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour.”

John 12:47“As for the person who hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge him. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save it.

John 18:37“You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

Addendum from the NT:
1 Timothy 1:15Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners —of whom I am the worst.

1 John 3:8He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.
