"I suppose the Father is
foreseeing that the Son will volunteer in order to fulfill the
Father's will."

Also noteworthy in analyzing the Son's role are the Son's verbs (will vs 
shall) when He volunteers.   Milton's Son lacks the foreknowledge of 
Milton's God; the Son merely (in the Renaissance meaning of that word) 
trusts the Father.
