Since Jesus was sinless as the Son of God, why was he willing to sacrifice himself on the cross?

Because Jesus wanted to accomplish God’s will and God willed to crush Jesus and make him suffer. God willed such a horrible death because Jesus was a guilt offering for others (Isa 53:10). Only by Jesus’ sacrifice could God realize his plan of redeeming sinners (Jn 18:11; 1 Jn 4:10). So Jesus willingly gave up his life to become a ransom for many (Mk 10:45). The Bible says that Jesus, “who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame” (Heb 12:2).
