He fulfilled all prophecies relating to the coming of a messiah and died for the sins of the world
9] The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
This is indeed a good question, what would have happened had Christ been allowed to set up his kingdom at that time? However His calling was of a different nature; and prophecy had to be fulfilled (which he did btw).
Christ was a political prisoner of sorts sent to his death by the jews.
 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

You seem to have a keen interest in Christ Jesus, and reading the Bible will give you answers to these questions and many more you may have. If however you find reading the Bible not to your liking at least make google your friend.
