“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him” (John 3:16-17 NIV).
The mission of Jesus was to save humanity, but aware of the stake involved. Understanding the method He used is quite essential. Jesus performed miracles, hitherto, not performed by any other, at that time. But, miracles were unnecessary, as long as one appreciated the significance of God. Prophetic Scriptures had all along highlighted the approaching momentous event of the birth of the Messiah.
Following prophecies about the Messianic hope, the Jews expected His birth, at the right time. However, they looked for a political Messiah who would deliver them from Roman oppression. According to Jewish teachings, Jesus did not fit the description of the promised Messiah.
