note that in KJV 'my' is italicized: indicating that it is not in the actual text.

this is John 10:30 in Greek --

ἐγὼ καὶ ὁ πατὴρ ἕν ἐσμεν

ἐγὼ = I
καὶ = and
ὁ = the
πατὴρ = Father
ἕν = one
ἐσμεν = are


this is the greek word for 'my'

μου
Umm, Greek to English meaning translation. Now here's my take in here why the KJV still get it correct as of the English translation.

My Grek companion, A New Greek and English Lexicon by James Donnegan p. 886 says that Attic writers like Plato, Aristotle, Arrian, Xephonon used the articles being put even with proper names which are correct to say "the" but the Bible is not to the Attic writers. In Homily, the article is not regularly put with proper names. As also with a possessive pronoun, when the substantive is defined as “thy son”, “a son of thine”; it is added also to other words to render them empathic.

So, the KJV is still correct though not rendering the omicron in English "the" yet used instead of "my" considering it's not in Greek as the rule in a religious discourse and yet emphasizing his relationship with His Father, as the only begotten Son, the thing the prophets of old and even the Apostles have not said anything of God the Father.

A certain man planted a vineyard, leased it to vinedressers, and went into a far country for a long time. Now at vintage-time he sent a servant to the vinedressers, that they might give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the vinedressers beat him and sent him away empty-handed. Again he sent another servant; and they beat him also, treated him shamefully, and sent him away empty-handed. And again he sent a third; and they wounded him also and cast him out.
Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my beloved son. Probably they will respect him when they see him.’ But when the vinedressers saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.’ So they cast him out of the vineyard and killed him. Therefore what will the owner of the vineyard do to them? He will come and destroy those vinedressers and give the vineyard to others.
(Luke 20:9-16)
in this parable, Jesus is the son, the heir, Whom the wicked vinedressers kill and cast out of the vineyard.
the LORD Almighty is the owner of the vineyard.

the owner of the vineyard will come and destroy those vinedressers: YHWH Lord of Hosts

For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works. Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom!
(Matthew 16:27-28)
it is the Son who will come and repay the vinedressers - it is the kingdom of the Son; His vineyard

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
(2 Corinthians 5:10)

it is the Son who judges and repays the vinedressers: Christ is God

And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
(2 Thessalonians 2:8)

Christ will destroy the lawless with the breath of His mouth

Even as I have seen, those who plow iniquity and sow trouble reap the same.
By the blast of God they perish, and by the breath of His anger they are consumed!
(Job 4:8-9)

God destroys the lawless with the breath of His mouth


Christ is God
