Mark 8 : 31 - .And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, and the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. And he spoke the saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him. But he turning about, and seeing his disciples, rebuked Peter, and said, Get you behind me, Satan; for you mind not the things of God, but the things of men.
Mark 9 : 30 ( Matthew 17 : 22, Luke 9 : 37 ) - And they went forth from thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it For he taught his disciples, and said to them, The Son of man is delivered up into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and when he is killed, after three days he shall rise again. But they understood not the saying, and were afraid to ask him.
Luke 9 : 31 - And as he was praying, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment became white and dazzling. And behold, there talked with him two men, who were Moses and Elijah; who appeared in glory, and spoke of his decease which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.
John 6 : 38 - For I am come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the will of him that sent me, that of all that which he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that every one that beholds the Son, and believes on him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. The Jews therefore murmured concerning him, because he said, I am the bread which came down out of heaven. And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how does he now say, I am come down out of heaven? Jesus answered and said to them, Murmur not among yourselves. No man can come to me, except the Father that sent me draw him: and I will raise him up in the last day.
John 8 : 42 - Jesus said to them, If God were your Father, you would love me: for I came forth and am come from God; for neither have I come of myself, but he sent me. Why do you not understand my speech? Even because you cannot hear my word.
John 10 : 17 - Therefore does the Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it again. No one takes it away from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment received I from my Father.
John 10 : 49 - But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being high priest that year, said to them, You know nothing at all, nor do you take account that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. Now this he said not of himself: but, being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for the nation; and not for the nation only, but that he might also gather together into one the children of God that are scattered abroad. So from that day forth they took counsel that they might put him to death.
Jesus' Mission - To Die To Save (Old Testament)
Isaiah 61 : 1 - The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is upon me; because Jehovah has anointed me to preach good tidings to the meek; he has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; to proclaim the year of Jehovah's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; to appoint to them that mourn in Zion, to give to them a garland for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of Jehovah, that he may be glorified.
Forgive (New Testament)
Luke 7 : 44 - And turning to the woman, he said to Simon, See you this woman? I entered your house, you gave me no water for my feet: but she has wetted my feet with her tears, and wiped them with her hair. You gave me no kiss: but she, since the time I came in, has not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil you did not anoint: but she has anointed my feet with ointment. Wherefore I say to you, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little. And he said to her, Your sins are forgiven. And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that even forgives sins? And he said to the woman, Your faith has saved you; go in peace.

John 1 : 29 - On the morrow he saw Jesus coming to him, and said, Behold, the Lamb of God, that takes away the sin of the world!

Job 1 : 9 - And Jehovah said to Satan, Have you considered my servant Job? for there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that fears God, and turns away from evil. Then Satan answered Jehovah, and said, Does Job fear God for nought? Have not you made a hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he has, on every side? you have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth your hand now, and touch all that he has, and he will renounce you to your face. And Jehovah said to Satan, Behold, all that he has is in your power; only upon himself put not forth your hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of Jehovah.
Job 9 : 14 - If God will not withdraw his anger, the proud helpers do stoop under him. How much less shall I answer him, and choose out my words to reason with him? Whom, though I were righteous, yet would I not answer, but I would make supplication to my judge. If I had called, and he had answered me; yet would I not believe that he had hearkened to my voice. For he breaks me with a tempest, and multiplies my wounds without cause. He will not suffer me to take my breath, but fills me with bitterness. If I speak of strength, lo, he is strong: and if of judgment, who shall set me a time to plead? If I justify myself, my own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse. Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soul: I would despise my life. This is one thing, therefore I said it, He destroys the perfect and the wicked. If the scourge slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent. The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covers the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he? ( 24 )
Proclaim (New Testament)
Matthew 12 : 18 - Behold, my servant whom I have chosen; My beloved in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my Spirit upon him, And he shall declare judgment to the Gentiles.

Matthew 17 : 9 - And as they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen from the dead. And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elijah must first come? And he answered and said, Elijah indeed comes, and shall restore all things: but I say to you, that Elijah is come already, and they knew him not, but did to him whatever they would. Even so shall the Son of man also suffer of them. Then understood the disciples that he spoke to them of John the Baptist.

Luke 1 : 1 - Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to draw up a narrative concerning those matters which have been fulfilled among us, even as they delivered them to us, who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word, it seemed good to me also, having traced the course of all things accurately from the first, to write to you in order, most excellent Theophilus; that you might know the certainty concerning the things wherein you were instructed.
Luke 4 : 14 - And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and a fame went out concerning him through all the region round about. And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and he entered, as his custom was, into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up to read. And there was delivered to him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And he opened the book, and found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, Because he anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor: He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovering of sight to the blind, To set at liberty them that are bruised, To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant, and sat down: and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fastened on him.

And all bare him witness, and wondered at the words of grace which proceeded out of his mouth: and they said, Is not this Joseph's son?

Jesus therefore answered them and said, My teaching is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man wills to do his will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or whether I speak from myself. He that speaks from himself seeks his own glory: but he that seeks the glory of him that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
John 11 : 51 - But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being high priest that year, said to them, You know nothing at all, nor do you take account that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

John 16 : 5 - But now I go to him that sent me; and none of you asks me, Whither go you? But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth: It is expedient for you that I go away; for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.
John 17 : 18 - As you sent me into the world, even so sent I them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth. Neither for these only do I pray, but for them also that believe on me through their word; that they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us: that the world may believe that you sent me. And the glory which you have given me I have given to them; that they may be one, even as we are one; I in them, and you in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that you did send me, and loved them, even as you loved me.e.
Heal (New Testament)
Matthew 8 : 1 - And when he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. And behold, there came to him a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if you will, you can make me clean. And he stretched forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be made clean. And straightway his leprosy was cleansed. And Jesus said to him, See you tell no man; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.
Mark 2 : 13 - And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted to him, and he taught them. And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the place of toll, and he said to him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him. And it came to pass, that he was sitting at meat in his house, and many publicans and sinners sat down with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him. And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with the sinners and publicans, said to his disciples, How is it that he eats and drinks with publicans and sinners? And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, They that are whole have no need of a physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.
Luke 7 : 12 - And it came to pass soon afterwards, that he went to a city called Nain; and his disciples went with him, and a great multitude. Now when he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, there was carried out one that was dead, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said to her, Weep not. And he came nigh and touched the bier: and the bearers stood still. And he said, Young man, I say to you, Arise. And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother. And fear took hold on all: and they glorified God, saying, A great prophet is arisen among us: and, God has visited his people. And this report went forth concerning him in the whole of Judaea, and all the region round about.
Luke 8 : 40 (Matthew 9 : 18, Mark 5 : 22 - And as Jesus returned, the multitude welcomed him; for they were all waiting for him. And behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' feet, and besought him to come into his house; for he had an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying. But as he went the multitudes thronged him. And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, who had spent all her living upon physicians, and could not be healed of any, came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately the issue of her blood stanched. And Jesus said, Who is it that touched me? And when all denied, Peter said, and they that were with him, Master, the multitudes press you and crush you. But Jesus said, Some one did touch me; for I perceived that power had gone forth from me. And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him declared in the presence of all the people for what cause she touched him, and how she was healed immediately. And he said to her, Daughter, your faith has made you whole; go in peace. While he yet spoke, there comes one from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying, Your daughter is dead; trouble not the Teacher. But Jesus hearing it, answered him, Fear not: only believe, and she shall be made whole. And when he came to the house, he suffered not any man to enter in with him, save Peter, and John, and James, and the father of the maiden and her mother. And all were weeping, and bewailing her: but he said, Weep not; for she is not dead, but sleeps. And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. But he, taking her by the hand, called, saying, Maiden, arise. And her spirit returned, and she rose up immediately: and he commanded that something be given her to eat. And her parents were amazed: but he charged them to tell no man what had been done.
John 9 : 6 - When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed his eyes with the clay, and said to him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is by interpretation, Sent ). He went away therefore, and washed, and came seeing. The neighbors therefore, and they that saw him aforetime, that he was a beggar, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? Others said, It is he: others said, No, but he is like him. He said, I am he. They said therefore to him, How then were your eyes opened? He answered, The man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed my eyes, and said to me, Go to Siloam, and wash: so I went away and washed, and I received sight. And they said to him, Where is he? He said, I know not. They bring to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind. Now it was the sabbath on the day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes. Again therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he received his sight. And he said to them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and I see. Some therefore of the Pharisees said, This man is not from God, because he keeps not the sabbath. But others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such signs? And there was division among them. They say therefore to the blind man again, What say you of him, in that he openedyour eyes? And he said, He is a prophet.
To Redeem - to Buy me Out - Ransom me (New Testament).....
Romans 3 : 25 .... being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: whom God set forth to be a propitiation, through faith, in his blood, to show his righteousness because of the passing over of the sins done aforetime, in the forbearance of God; for the showing, I say, of his righteousness at this present season: that he might himself be just, and the justifier of him that has faith in Jesus.
Romans 8 : 23 .... And not only so, but ourselves also, who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for our adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
1 Corinthians 1 : 30 - But of him are you in Christ Jesus, who was made to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption: that, according as it is written, He that glories, let him glory in the Lord.

Ephesians 1 : 7 .... in whom we have our redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he purposed in him

Hebrews 10 : 10 - Saying above, Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin you would not, neither had pleasure therein (the which are offered according to the law), then has he said, Lo, I am come to do your will.

Titus 2 : 13 - looking for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

1 Peter 2 : 24 - who his own self bore our sins in his body upon the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live to righteousness; by whose stripes you were healed.
John 4 : 30 - They went out of the city, and were coming to him. In the mean while the disciples prayed him, saying, Rabbi, eat. But he said to them, I have meat to eat that you know not. The disciples therefore said one to another, Has any man brought him aught to eat? Jesus said to them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to accomplish his work. Say not you, There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest? behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields, that they are white already to harvest. He that reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit to life eternal; that he that sows and he that reaps may rejoice together. For herein is the saying true, One sows, and another reaps. I sent you to reap that whereon you have not labored: others have labored, and you are entered into their labor.

Acts 2 : 22 - You men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God to you by mighty works and wonders and signs which God did by him in the midst of you, even as you yourselves know; him, being delivered up by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, you by the hand of lawless men did crucify and slay: whom God raised up, having loosed the pangs of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. For David says concerning him, I beheld the Lord always before my face; For he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: Therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; Moreover my flesh also shall dwell in hope: Because you will not leave my soul unto Hades, Neither will you give your Holy One to see corruption. You made known to me the ways of life; You shall make me full of gladness with your countenance. Brethren, I may say to you freely of the patriarch David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins he would set one upon his throne; he foreseeing this spake of the resurrection of the Christ, that neither was he left unto Hades, nor did his flesh see corruption. This Jesus did God raise up, whereof we all are witnesses. Being therefore by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured forth this, which you see and hear. For David ascended not into the heavens: but he says himself, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit on my right hand, Till I make your enemies the footstool of your feet. Let all the house of Israel therefore know assuredly, that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.
Acts 5 : 31 - The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom you slew, hanging him on a tree. Him did God exalt with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, to give repentance to Israel, and remission of sins. And we are witnesses of these things; and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to them that obey him.
1 Timothy 3 : 16 - And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness; He who was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the spirit, Seen of angels, Preached among the nations, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.
To Redeem - to Buy me Out - Ransom me (OldTestament).
Hosea 13 : 14 - I will ransom them from the power of Sheol; I will redeem them from death: O death, where are your plagues? O Sheol, where is your destruction? repentance shall be hid from my eyes. Though he be fruitful among his brethren, an east wind shall come, the breath of Jehovah coming up from the wilderness; and his spring shall become dry, and his fountain shall be dried up: he shall make spoil of the treasure of all goodly vessels. Samaria shall bear her guilt; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword; their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up.( 16 End )
