Your kingdom come.  Your will be done.  On earth as it is in heaven.  (Matthew 6:10)

All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  (Matthew 28:18)

I am with you always, even to the end of the age.  (Matthew 28:20)

His Mission

Jesus the God Man had a mission to complete on earth.  I included my 30 in 90, which are 30 reasons (among hundreds) that you should spend 90 minutes in reading (and undertake as a reading frequently) to get an understanding of Christology.  These were all part of Jesus’ mission on earth and they all interrelate.  I would encourage that as we find other verses that apply (I only got you started) that you will add to this list and go over frequently.  But this mission could not have been accomplished without the commission of the Father through the earthly ministry of the Messiah:

To preach the Kingdom (Mark 1:38; Luke 4:43; Luke 4:18-19; Ephesians 2:17; and Isaiah 61:1-2)
