The Mission of Jesus Christ
All the things that we need to know about Jesus Christ, we can read in the Holy Bible. From our interpretations of the Bible’s contents, we can deduce the life of Jesus Christ and his purpose or mission of living on earth during the trying times. Jesus Christ is the son of God, the Divine Being, who was sent down to Earth to redeem the people from their lives of sin. Jesus Christ was born from virgin conception, the biological son of the Blessed Virgin Mary and fathered by her husband, Joseph. Jesus grew up in Nazareth as a carpenter like his father. The events following his youth were not revealed in the Scriptures, up until the moment when Jesus Christ chose to teach the Gospel and enlighten the people about his Father, the Divine Being, and salvation as a means for them to save their souls and reap the consequences of their good and noble acts following their salvation in heaven.
Jesus Christ traveled from one place to another in order to preach the Word of God through gnomic means, such as the use of parables and other stories that reveal a lesson. His purpose in teaching people from all walks of life, from beggars, to priests, his apostles, or even sinners, was to teach how people should live their lives under the righteousness of the Lord. Man’s reward for his establishment of a relationship with God is eternal life, a life after one dies, in heaven where men can find peace within themselves and with God.
Jesus Christ taught every good deed that people should practice, such as loving thy neighbor, honoring thy mother and thy father, respecting other people, saying no to sin and temptation, and such. However, the ultimate purpose of Jesus Christ, why God sent him down to earth was to redeem the people from their sins. Throughout his travel, Jesus Christ has met with numerous people who sinned and never repented from it. God was angered by their refusal to listen, and Jesus Christ took upon himself to deliver the people from evil and from lives of sin by giving away his life. It was Jesus Christ’s ultimate sacrifice of his life, in order to wash away the sins of the people and give them a chance to live righteously again.
