Jesus Christ’s main purpose on earth was not to inspire us to follow Him in the way that He lived, although He did live a blameless and selfless life; the main purpose of God’s incarnation was also not to teach us anything, even though the eternal wisdom within His recorded speech are as applicable today as the day He first spoke them. Actually, the main purpose of Jesus being born was for Him to die.

Throughout His ministry, Jesus explained to His disciples that the mission of the only begotten Son of the Living God, was for Him to be born into this world so that He could die for us and be raised to life so that our sins could be forgiven and we could be redeemed and receive the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Son of God died in our place—He paid the ultimate price for our sins and gave His life for ours.

These Bible quotes about the work of Christ reveal that we can be made right with God and have our sins washed away. Whoever responds with faith will not die themselves, but instead live a full and abundant Christian life—both in the here and now and also in the future and forever.

Yes, Jesus died on the cross to pay the debt for the sins of everyone in the world, but His work did not stop there. The Bible teaches us that if Jesus had only died and remained dead in the grave, then our faith would in fact be worthless (1 Corinthians 15:12–19). This is why the apostles’ teaching in the New Testament emphasised the importance of Christ’s resurrection.

These Bible verses about Jesus show us that, through the death and resurrection of Christ, His ascension into heaven and exaltation to the right hand of the Father as Lord of all we have access to all the blessings that God wants to give us. In the book of Romans, Paul summarizes this by saying that the death of Christ reconciled us to God and His present life makes our salvation perfect (Romans 5:8–10).

Book of Bible verses logoHere we have a letter made of paraphrased Scripture verses about Jesus and the work of Christ. This letter is based on the seventh chapter of the Christian book Letters from Home, Our Father’s Message of Love and is called, What my Son has accomplished for you.

As you read these Bible verses about Jesus and His mission, contemplate how our redemption is made perfect and complete by what Jesus has done, and is currently doing, for us.

Bible verses about

I knew you would turn away from me, So I planned ahead for it—I chose Christ even before the creation of the world to be the one to bring you back, and I have now revealed him to you.[1] I gave orders to my Son, and sent him with work he had to accomplish.[2] Know, my child, that my Son loved me and did everything I asked him.[3]

He has volunteered his life for everyone in the world.[4] It is not because you loved me that I sent my only Son, but because I love you, so dearly.[5]

Through miracles, my Son revealed his glory to his disciples and they placed their faith in him.[6] My Son knew his mission was to die; he told all who were close to him.[7] He explained that his Father loved him and that he would lay down his life only to take it up again.[8] He instructed them to listen carefully, for he would be betrayed,[9] condemned to death,[10] and after three days he would rise to life.[11] He told them he was returning to me, to his Father and to his God.[12] But they did not understand him.[13]

In his entire life, he never went against my will and never lied.[14] Nobody could prove him guilty of any sin,[15] yet he suffered many things and was rejected by everyone.[16]

He was insulted,[17] he was loathed and not accepted, he was full of sorrows and no stranger to suffering.[18] Yet when they gave their abuse, he did not retaliate; he suffered, but threatened no one, for his trust was in the righteous Judge.[19] His soul was overwhelmed with sorrow,[20] for he carried your sins within him, in his body,[21] and suffered in his soul.[22]

The punishment that was rightly yours, fell on him; he was crushed to bring you peace, and through his wounds you are healed.[23]

He was betrayed for money,[24] just as it was written hundreds of years before it happened,[25] and was given to sinful men who crucified him, but on the third day he beat death and rose to life.[26]

They mocked him on the cross, saying, “Save yourself if you can”.[27] But it was I who brought him safely from the womb; from the earliest of times he has trusted me, even as a baby he knew me as God[28] and Father.[29] I would not hide my face from him—I heard his cry for help.[30] He gave up his Spirit into my protection, and breathed no more.[31]

My child, this is of supreme importance: my Son died for you, just as it was predicted by my prophets of old. He was buried in a tomb and I raised him to life on the third day, just as it was written, and he was seen by many.[32] The author of life was killed,[33] but I raised my servant so you could be blessed—turn from your sins, my child.[34] By being lifted up on the cross, Jesus drew everyone to himself.[35]

On the third day, I raised my son and many saw him.[36] I raised my Son from the dead—[37] the First and the Last had died but was risen to life,[38] for death could not hold him.[39]

His disciples saw the empty tomb, but they didn’t understand that he must rise from the dead.[40] On the Sunday after my son’s death, his disciples were together with the doors locked, for they were afraid of what the people outside might do. But Jesus came to them, offering peace, and they were overjoyed.[41]

When they saw him they were shocked and afraid at first.[42] Some were doubtful,[43] but they looked at the holes in his hands and feet[44] and they remembered his words when he taught them afresh.[45] After that, they resolved to know nothing except Christ and him crucified.[46]

They shared meals with him after he had risen[47] and he appeared to his disciples for forty days, talking about my Kingdom.[48] He was seen by more than 500 people at the same time;[49] there were many witnesses.[50]

I handed him over to die for your offences, but I raised him to life to make you right with me.[51] For if I had left my Son in the grave, your faith would be worthless and your sins would remain.[52] But I raised him from among the dead, freeing him from the sorrow of death,[53] and as I raised Christ, so will I raise you to be with me.[54] He is the firstfruits of all who will die, for all will be raised.[55]

You see, my child, Christ came once to take away the sins of many, and he will come again, bringing with him salvation for all who wait for him.[56] When he is revealed from heaven, he will relieve you of all your troubles.[57]

When Jesus returns everyone will see him—even the very ones who pierced him and hung Him on the cross.[58]

When people die physically, they are buried just as their fathers before them were,[59] but I did not abandon my Holy One; I could not let him see decay.[60]

The people who had travelled with Christ during his life saw him for many days after he was raised to life.[61] Then, I took him up into heaven[62]—he ascended before their very eyes[63] until a cloud hid him and they could see him no more.[64]

He is now present everywhere[65] and sits at my right hand in the realms of heaven[66] where he intercedes on your behalf pleading your case before me.[67] He now sits at a place of honour with me.[68] For, by his resurrection from the dead, the Holy Spirit mightily declared that Jesus was my Son[69] and that all angels, authorities and powers have been made subject to him.[70]

I have placed all things under his authority—he is above all rule, power and title of honour that can be given;[71] I have made my Son both Lord and Christ.[72] My child, regret your wrongdoings and change your ways, turn to me that I may wipe out your sins and revive you.[73] Turn to me, so I can send my Son again, for he cannot come until the appointed time.[74]

Through my kindness I try to lead you to repentance.[75] If you confess that Jesus is truly Lord, and believe that I raised him from the dead, you will surely be saved.[76] This message is silliness to those who will not listen, but to my children who are being saved, it is my own great power[77]—it is a message that can rescue you from darkness and bring you into my beloved Son’s kingdom.[78]
