If you are interested in a Patristic perspective, Maximus the Confessor has a lengthy exposition of this particular text in On Difficulties in Sacred Scripture. It is question 42, "How is it that we are said to commit sin and to know that we have sinned, while the Lord is said to have “become sin” without knowing sin? And how is sinning, and knowing that one has sinned, not a graver offense than sinning and not knowing it? For it says: “He who did not know sin, was made sin for us.”
