We can only speculate since the Bible is silent between birth and 30 aside from the one event when He was 12. However, He was without sin so we know many things he didn't do.

He is God. He had full control over whether or not to allow himself to be executed. Even humanly speaking, there are several things he could have done to avoid death had he wanted to, from not getting in the Jewish leaders' faces to apologizing and responding to Pilate and Herod after his arrest. Remember, Pilate saw nothing in Jesus deserving of death. However, he knew what he was prophesied to do and did it. For us.

So you say. A great multitude beg to differ. How about his disciples for instance? He appeared to them after death and even let Thomas touch his wounds. They went on to become the Apostles and to a man suffered greatly for proclaiming this Gospel message without a single one recanting even to execution for many of them. For a fairy tale? I think not.
