If God & Jesus both have differnt wills how can they be in unity ?

42 saying: Father, if you wish, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, let not my will, but yours take place (Luke 22).

Jesus had a human will, He knew what suffering was coming. Jesus's will was In accord with but submitted to His Father's will.

I'm pretty sure you'd be asking for the cup to leave aswell... It was a time where Jesus didn't want to suffer but knew why he was going to. God knew it aswell and didn't want him to die like that. I have a similar yet more submissive to my dad's will but we usually agree on pretty much everything. but sometimes it hurts to want something you can't have.

He might indeed ask for the cup as well, but he is not claiming to be in unison with God!

They think alike and are one and three but sometimes they say something and other times another

For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. (John 6:38 KJV)================Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. (John 4:34 KJV)===================That is why, when Christ came into the world, he said to God, ?You did not want animal sacrifices or sin offerings. But you have given me a body to offer. You were not pleased with burnt offerings or other offerings for sin. Then I said, ?Look, I have come to do your will, O God? as is written about me in the Scriptures.?? (Hebrews 10:5-7 NLT)

The beauty of the Christian faith is that God the Son became a Man, and in His humanity was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Jesus demonstrated over and over what it was like to submit his human will to God the Father. Jesus, fully human to relate to our weakness and to offer Himself in our place of judgment; and fully God to show us who God is and what He is like in love and mercy. He is forever one with God the Father and God the Spirit.

John 8:29 adds to the Scripture mentioned above, "...He who sent Me is with Me. He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him." Always; as you point out in His most distressing moment. What a comfort to those who are suffering.

So Jesus offers us the opportunity to do God's will. When asked, Jesus said, "the will of God is this, to believe in the one He has sent."

Although Jesus was 100% God He was also 100% man. As God, Jesus knew exactly what He was up against going to the cross. But as a man just like any man was probably somewhat fearful of the pain an anxiety that He was going to have to experience. Can you imagine of what it would've been like to suffer as He did? I don't think anyone could come close to comprehend it. It's like myself. I can honestly say I'm not a afaird to die but I hate pain .

Judging by your questions and lack of dialogue, you seem to be searching for an excuse to deny that Jesus is God. And just not finding what you're looking for. The thing is Christians by virtue of being Christians believe he is God. But not everyone is a Christian. You seem to be trying to find someone to deny that Jesus is God. Either you are trying to turn Christians away from Christianity or you are seeking to be persuaded to become a Christian against your will. Either scenario seems pointless. After all why would you try to shake someone's faith? And why if you don't believe would you seek a religion that you don't believe in? The only other option is your trying to troll. Now if you had something to discuss that would be one thing; you ask a question and you contribute perhaps a meaningful dialogue or discussion that's fine. But instead you ask one question with no feedback you ask another question no feedback and another rinse and repeat ad nauseum. That makes you a troll in my book of measure. So are you going anywhere with this seemingly pointless stream of questions? Or are you just spinning your wheels?
