What was the mission of Christ, no more than to fulfill the word of God and to bring us into his covenant. Isaiah 56:5 -12. Christ accomplish his missing through submission although He could have delivered himself out of the hands of his enemies. It is yet a mission for him to fulfill, his first appearance was to be a suffering servant, but his second will be to fulfill the words of  Psalms 110:6  “He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries”.

Mt 1:18 ¶ Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Mt 1:19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.

Mt 1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

Mt 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Mt 1:22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

Mt 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Mt 1:24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

Mt 1:25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
