"Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? 'Father, save Me from this hour'? But for this purpose I came to this hour.”  John 12:27 NKJV

Jesus came for this purpose:

16. To save the world, not condemn it:

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 "He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  John 3:16-18 NKJV

17. To send fire on earth:

I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I if it be already kindled?  Luke 12:49 KJV

18. To be salvation:

This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.  1 Timothy1:15 NKJV

19. To baptize in the Holy Spirit:

I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire.  Matthew 3:11 KJV

I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water." 32 And John bore witness, saying, "I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. 33 I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, 'Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.'  John 1:31-33 NKJV

In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. 38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. 39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)  John 7:37-39 KJV

20. To deliver from evil:

Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father.  Galatians 1:3-4 KJV

21. To bring judgment:

And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. John 9:39 KJV

22. To give abundant life:

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.  John 10:10 KJV

23. To bear sickness:

That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: "He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses."  Matthew8:17 NKJV

Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness — by whose stripes you were healed.  1 Peter 2:24 NKJV

Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:4-5 NKJV

24. To be a light to the world:

I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.  John 12:46 NKJV

25. To give eternal life:

And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.  John 17:3 NKJV

26. To minister to people:

Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.  Matthew 20:28 NKJV

27. To bring grace and truth:

For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.  John 1:17 NKJV

28. To do God's will:

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

29. To destroy Satan's work:

He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.  1 John 3:8 NKJV

30. To be an example:

Who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.  1 Peter 1:21NKJV

For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps.  1 Peter 2:21 NKJV

31. To die for sins:

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures.  1 Corinthians 15:3 NKJV

Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.  Galatians 1:3-5 NKJV

32. To purify unto Himself a peculiar people:

Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.  Titus2:14 KJV
