Because God wanted a perfect sacrifice, and the only sinless human was Christ.

Response to How is it that his death on the cross is a sacrifice for the sin of the world?

 

So no other human was eligible. And God wanted a sacrifice, because without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. And the sacrifices of animals just pointed toward the perfect sacrifice of Christ. The author of Hebrews is clear that sacrifices of animals were not sufficient to forgive sins. So a human sacrifice was necessary. And only Christ was eligible.

  1. If not of our sins, would Christ have died? - Michael on May 28, 2017, 5:44 AM
    1. Of course if none of us sinned, then Christ would not have had to die for us. - Tomas on Jun 10, 2017, 9:24 PM
     
  2. Did God violate His own laws written in Deut. 24:16 and Ezek. 18:20? - INCquisitor on May 28, 2017, 4:24 PM
    1. No, he did not. Christ is the head of the church, his body, so he died for his body. - Tomas on Jun 10, 2017, 9:26 PM
