Excuse my ignorance ahead of time, but I have always wondered about this. If Jesus is the son of god and he has otherworldly powers then doesn't he have to "allow" himself to die? Wouldn't that constitute suicide?

No. Suicide is a depressed person seeking an escape, trying to end the pain of life, the confusion of life, the problems of life.

Jesus' life was a sacrifice.

Let's say that someone broke into your home to kill your loved one. They said that you were free to go but they were going to take the life of your loved one. When they pulled the trigger, you willing jumped in front of your loved one and saved their life.

You died.

You didn't commit suicide, you willingly laid down your life.
