The Purpose of Jesus’ Coming to Earth and Becoming a Man
(1 Timothy 1:15, Luke 19:10

  1. Jesus is God but He became a man. He came to earth to be in the position of a man to bear our sins, to shed His blood so that our sins would be forgiven. He was just like any other man who went through different phases of a human life such as birth, growing up etc..

  2. He came to proclaim God’s salvation, and spread the good news to all the people who did not know about it. 

  3. Jesus had experienced all the pain and sufferings of a human life, so that He can sympathize with our weaknesses. Thus, with every weakness we come across, He understands how we feel, and He will intercede (pray) for us (Hebrews 4:15)

A Few Main Points of His Life
(Isaiah 53)

  • Isaiah 53 tells us that Jesus came to the earth not to be served but rather to serve and to suffer for man’s transgressions. A God so great, because of His love, was willing to humble Himself to become a man, despised and forsaken by man, often experiencing agony, all for the purpose to seek and to save those who are lost.  

  • Born in a Manger (Luke 2:7) 

  • Being a Carpenter, a lowly Nazarene (Mark 6:3, Matt. 2:23) 

  • Being Baptized around 30 years old, being tempted (Mark 1:9,13; Luke 3:23) 

  • Preaching, healing, and casting away demons (Matthew 4:23) 

  • Calling for disciples (Matt. 4:18-22) 

  • Being Crucified, buried, and resurrected (Mark 15:15, 46; 16:6) 

We should always consider and remember the life that Jesus lived on the earth and be touched by His love, moving us to live a life that pleases Him.
