Well, it's both. He was captured for claiming to be the son of god and was going to be crucified( this part is a no). however he asked, his father, if he should escape or do something. And god replied "No you will die for the sins of mankind" (So this part is a yes). So it's debatable, but I, personally would say it's 50/50.
He was Emanuel "God with us" he was & is the LORD himself he was born of woman in a flesh body to be the perfect sacrifice, none of us could be! His purpose in doing so was to bridge the gap created by sin, he is the way, the truth, the light, the ONLY way to Heaven!
NO. If the bible is true, then, Jesus was suicidal. If Jesus were God, then he had the power to protect himself from death. But instead of using his power, he allowed his enemies to take his life.
Suppose the strongest man should allow a few little children to hack him to death with knives when he could easily have pushed them aside and saved himself, would we not say that he committed suicide?
The case was same for Jesus. There is no escape. If Christ were, in fact, God, and allowed himself to be killed, then he consented to his own death -- refusing, though perfectly able, to defend and protect himself, and was, of course, a suicidal case.
If Jesus was killed because of His belief or chose to be killed rather than deny His beliefs, this would imply He was a martyr. If He willfully gave His life for a cause (in this case to provide an atonement) this would indicate He was a sacrificer. If a fireman was killed because he wouldn't deny that it was the duty of the fireman to rush into a burning building to save a life, he would be considered a martyr. If he willingly ran into a burning building to save a life and is killed, he would be a sacrificer. "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13. This is a description of love, not suicide.
