What was Jesus' Mission —– who was sent and why?
Much has been said by prince and pauper why Jesus had come.
These three false unscriptural assumptions have muddied the waters of perception to virtual impermeability with the obfuscating pride of the ignorant almost a guaranty.
1. Man's generic sin inherited from Adam . . A matter of sinner identity
2. The trinity of apostate Christianity . . Israel under either covenant only had one!
3. Jesus and Jehovah's only begotten son are one and the same person.
I have dealt with these on other pages, if you are interested .
But this is primarily about Jesus' mission introduced here in his own words:
16 So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read.
17 And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:
18 “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”
20 Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him.
21 And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” NKJV
Since he had quoted from Isaiah 61, scholars and interpreters are puzzled why he did not continue on through that chapter and beyond. In fact he stopped short of that bit about vengeance:
1 The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is upon me; because Jehovah hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath 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; 2 to proclaim the year of Jehovah’s favour, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3 to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto 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.
4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. 5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and foreigners shall be your plowmen and your vine dressers.
6 But ye shall be named the priests of Jehovah; men shall call you the ministers of our God: ye shall eat the wealth of the nations, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. 7 Instead of your shame ye shall have double; and instead of dishonour they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be unto them.
8 For I, Jehovah, love justice, I hate robbery with iniquity; and I will give them
their recompense in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
9 And their seed shall be known among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples; all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which Jehovah hath blessed.
10 I will greatly rejoice in Jehovah, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decked himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the earth bringeth forth its bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord Jehovah will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations. 62:1 For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness go forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns. ASV
Why did Jesus not continue quoting from Isaiah”? Simply because Jesus had to remain faithful to the end of his life and that of the sinner Israel executed in him as the ultimate expression of Jehovah's vengeance against them for their abject wickedness under the law of the first Testament.
Pointless for Jesus to have spoken about vengeance, because these were The Good news of Israel's redemption and not a preamble to an execution.
Anyway, it might never have happened; there were no guarantees of Jesus' faithfulness.
Israel's execution and redemption in Jesus now allowed Jehovah to bring His vengeance to completion by virtually erasing first covenant Israel at the hands of Roman Army as the overture to their continuing Great Tribulation of Matthew 24 that will terminate when Jehovah's temporary purpose for Israel is realised in the 1000 year kingdom.
That is what the Great Tribulation is really all about:
So who was sent? 16 “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.
Right on, for it fits the delusions of the Christian Guilt industry's Church and State amalgam running humanity.
So then, to clear that up once and for all: For what world was the only begotten given?

The only-begotteness of Jesus is dream-time nonsense, because Jesus was Adam #2, an entirely different and specially created son of God made from earth matter as was Adam #1, but this time via Mary’s womb, with his life also directly from God.
Jehovah could thus never be accused of requiring human sacrifice from descendants of Adam #1 to appease Him, as required by many man-made tribal gods.
See: http://www.sanctifyname.com/onlybegotten.html for the enlightening details.
Jesus' Mission then? To die in place of Jehovah's Solely-Begotten son offered to redeem His firstborn son Israel.
Look and you shall undoubtedly find.
