The question relates to this statement:

“No one takes my life from me. I give it up willingly! I have the power to give it up and the power to receive it back again” (John 10:18)

The context here is that the basis for God raising Jesus is that Jesus – uniquely – has earned that resurrection by having broken the precedent of sin and death. It still requires God to raise Jesus, as Hebrews 5:7 makes clear.
