Jesus is the sacrifice for sin, he became sin who knew no sin in order to save sinuous man, and to convert and restore lost man by this New Covenant to true righteousness.

The death and resurrection of Jesus for the forgiveness and cleansing of our sins, to be the perfect sacrifice for our sins, then to be raised from the dead so that death no longer has power over us. In the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus prayed: "Father if it be possible, let this cup pass from me, nevertheless, not my will, but thine be done." Right after that Jesus was crucified.

 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

The will of His Father was for Jesus to come to earth, to be made lower than the angels,and be born as a human,live a sinless life here on earth, subject Himself to much sorrow, go to the Cross, take on Himself the sins of all mankind, from beginning to end; this is the part that He sweat blood over in the garden. To die on the Cross, spend three days in upper sheol in total dependence to His Father, rise again and take His place on the right hand of the His Father, forever after to be both God and man.

The will of the Father was to have perfect fellowship with mankind, (generic term). Since that fellowhip was broken by the sin of Adam, He had to find another way to reunite His proper relationship with man. This was done by sending His Son, Jesus and having Him die. Christ fulfilled the demands of the Law and didn't have to die, but Christ choose to because it was the will of the Father. This was the only way God had of re-uniting man with Himself.

john 3/16 say for god so loved the world that he gave his only son so that who might believe in him will not perish but have everlasting life. but he also came to be an eample for us who would believe. you after accepting jesus are suppose to be a new creature living a life after his example. don,t ask what would jesus do, ask what do I do to be like jesus.
