The Church teaches that Jesus being fully God and fully man in the same Being is a crux or a mystery.
We as Catholics believe that Jesus is eternally begotten of God. When was Jesus eternally begotten of God? Could Jesus sin before He is eternally begotten of God?
We know that God is Omni-Present to the whole of physical time. Take this example: Man is judged by Jesus upon judgement day at the end of time. The names of the elect are written down by Jesus, upon Judgement day, into the spiritual book of life which God has with Him at creation. The book of life, though written upon Judgement day, exists before creation because it is spiritual and Omni-Present to the whole of physical time.
Scripture tells us that Jesus is begotten of God at His ressurection. Pre-“begotten of God” Jesus would be capable of sin. Post-“begotten of God” Jesus would be Omni-Present God to the whole of physical time and incapable of sin. Thus Jesus is both fully free willed man, capable of sin, and fully God, incapable of sin, in the same Being during the period in physical time of His flesh.
Can Jesus love the Father with out the free willed option to choose not to love the Father? Is it fair to compare Satan as unrighteous and Jesus as righteous, if Satan is the only one with the capacity of free will to choose unrighteousness? The true greatness of Jesus is His tremendous perfect obedient love for the Father which He produced as, free from the will of the Father, man on earth.

NAB HEB 4:14Since, then, we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast to our profession of faith. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weakness, but one who was tempted in every way that we are, yet never sinned. NAB PSA 2:4
He who is throned in heaven laughs; the LORD derides them; Then in anger he speaks to them; he terrifies them in his wrath: “I myself have set up my king on Zion, my holy mountain. I will proclaim the decree of the LORD: The LORD said to me, 'You are my son; this day I have begotten you. Ask of me and I will give you the nations for an inheritance and the ends of the earth for your possession. You shall rule them with an iron rod: you shall shatter them like an earthen dish.’” NAB ACT 13:32
“We ourselves announce to you the good news that what God promised our fathers he has fulfilled for us, their children, in raising up Jesus, according to what is written in the second psalm, You are my son; this day I have begotten you.”
