1. TO FULFILL THE LAW. MATT 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

2. TO SHOW WHAT GOD IS LIKE. JOHN 14:7-10 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

3. TO LIGHT THE WAY TO GOD. JOHN 12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

4. TO SEEK & TO SAVE THE LOST. LUKE 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. MT 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

5. TO GIVE NEW LIFE. JOHN 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. EPH 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

6. TO GIVE HIS OWN LIFE. JOHN 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. JOHN 10:15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. HEB 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

7. TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF SATAN. JOHN 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. 1 JOHN 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
