Jesus grew in wisdom and in favor with God and all people (Luke 2:52)
Around 30 years of age, Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist and began his earthly ministry calling people to “Love God, and Love their neighbors as themselves”
His mission, which he fulfilled, was to go to The Cross, and die for our sins.

declares that we are righteous. he did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God
Presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life. God did this
to demonstrate his righteousness, for he is fair and just and he declares sinners (you and I) to be right in his sight when they believe
in Jesus.” (Romans 3:23-26)
