As an ex-Buddhist, ex-Hindu, ex-Atheist and a current vegan I found it difficult to understand the reason for sacrifice. I felt that sacrifice was unnecessary and made no logical sense. I hope this helps you to understand.
Jesus had to be a sacrifice for humanity for the purposes of cleansing the world of sin and saving mankind and creation from eternal death and hell. Jesus is the only Divine King of Glory and is the Prince of Peace. Jesus is the Perfect Loving God in the flesh. Jesus is Perfect Man, Second Adam, Fully Man, Fully God and is the Life-Giving Spirit. God had to become a physical human (which is Jesus) in order to be the Perfect Sacrifice. More than a sacrifice, Jesus defeated sin and death in His human life form. We are saved by God’s remarkable compassion. God’s blood has infinite worth and is a Holy Sacrifice more than any animal sacrifice could ever be, because animal blood is not equal to human blood. Jesus is the Perfect Unblemished Passover Lamb, Jesus paid the Spiritual cost of sin. Jesus’ sacrificial death was a Divine exchange to give us eternal life. All unpaid sin separates us from God eternally. The cost of unrepentant sin against God is eternal death. The consequence of unwillingness to accept God’s forgiveness by His sacrifice of His shed blood is God’s judgement of you and your eternal damnation in hell. Jesus is the second part of the Trinity. Give your life to Jesus Christ and believe in the Trinity (Jesus, God and The Holy Spirit) and He will give you the gift of eternal life in Heaven. Jesus was a Divine Curse and an incomparable sacrifice for our sins. Jesus was a Divine sacrifice He took on our curses, for cursed is anyone who hangs on a tree.
Jesus speaks in the book of John 6v54-57 54 “Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternall life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
55For my flesh is meate indeed, and my blood is drinke indeed.
56He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
57As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so, he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.”
1 Peter 2v5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Proverbs 3v5-6 5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
If you can read the whole book of John you will find evidence that Jesus is God.
Don’t love human praise more than the praise of God. John 12v43
(See Galatians 3v13 But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”)
The Holy Bible, New Living Translation (N.L.T.) 1st Corinthians 15v45-46 The scripture tells us, “The first Adam became a living person” But the last Adam – that is, Christ – is a life giving Spirit. 46. What comes first is the natural body, then the Spiritual body comes later.

The works that I do in my Father’s name bear witness about me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not part of my flock. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”

To those who have obtained a faith of equal standing with ours by the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ:
Romans 5v6-8 6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.

To him be honour and eternal dominion. Amen.
