Did Jesus want to suffer and die?

Did Jesus want to die? This is a very unusual question, yet many of us take it for granted because of the teachings of the past. No human being n his/her right mind wants to suffer and die. There is nothing good in suffering itself. It is evil and has to be avoided. Suffering does not save. Its effect is normally to destroy. If we are victims of injustice and oppression and deceit, we have to do something. To be passive and to encourage others to do the same "for love of christ" is to conspire with evil and to deny our model, Jesus... so, what do you think did jesus want to suffer and die???
