14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
The scripture says tell them I am has sent you. This is to say 'tell them I am sent from the Father'; to tell them 'I AM is to tell them His oneness with the Father. To tell them 'I AM' is to reveal His deity; and tell them "I am that I am". This is to say 'I am that which I am" which is to reveal the nature of God by His attributes. I am the Light of the World; I am the Resurrection and the Life; I am the Great Shepherd; etc. So Jesus is sent into the world to reveal the nature of the Father, and His unity with the Father. You could say his purpose is The Revelation of Jesus Christ!
