It has been shown already that historically, Jesus did indeed exist; hence, He had to have been born. We know that He existed. Simple historical fact.
However, the coming of Jesus, Immanuel, God with us, was not just an historical event to look back on. There was a reason for His coming! There is meaning to that great event.
Jesus came to this earth to die for sinners, to save His people from their sins! So, without any embellishments, here are some passages that tell us the reason for Christ’s coming!
Mary “will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” (Mt 1:21)
“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Mk 10:45)
“For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” (Jn 18:37)
“In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” (1 Jn 4:10)
“Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” (Eph 5:2 ESV)
“For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” (Jn 3:16 HCSB)
“for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.” (Mt 26:28)
“(5) Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, (6) who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, (7) but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. (8) Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” (Php 2:5-8)
“He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” (2 Cor 5:21)
Christ “gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father” (Gal 1:4)
“Because Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, to bring you to God, by being put to death in the flesh but by being made alive in the spirit.” (1 Pet 3:18 NET)
“Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffered outside the gate.” (Heb 13:12)
“and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness” (1 Pet 2:24)
“(14) Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, (15) and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.” (Heb 2:14-15)
“The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.” (1 Jn 3:8)
“(14) For He is our peace, who made both groups one and tore down the dividing wall of hostility. In His flesh, (15) He made of no effect the law consisting of commands and expressed in regulations, so that He might create in Himself one new man from the two, resulting in peace. (16) He did this so that He might reconcile both to God in one body through the cross and put the hostility to death by it.” (Eph 2:14-16 HCSB)
“(51) Now [Caiaphas] did not say this on his own initiative, but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the nation, (52) and not for the nation only, but in order that He might also gather together into one the children of God who are scattered abroad.” (Jn 11:51-52)
“(27) ‘For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, (28) to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose predestined to occur.’” (Ac 4:27-28)
