For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’;Mr 1:38But He said to them, “Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I have come forth.”Joh 5:43I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.

 

Joh 6:38For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

 

Joh 6:42And they said, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, ‘I have come down from heaven’?”Joh 9:39And Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind.”

I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.

Joh 8:14

Joh 12:27“Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, for this purpose I have come to this hour.

Joh 16:27for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came forth from the Father.

 

Joh 16:28“I came forth from the Father and have come into the world; I am leaving the world again and going to the Father.”
