“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets;
I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth.
I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.
For I have come to turn“‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother,
a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—
Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—
so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.”
“I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!
I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me;
but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.
For I have come down from heaven not to do my will
but to do the will of him who sent me.
Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me,
for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me.
Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.”
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
I have come into the world as a light, so that
no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
