Jesus was man and God (please note the bold red text).

Jesus is God in the visible, physical
world that we know and live in. God has to come into this world to make a sacrifice of Himself
by His own sinless blood that hasn't been tainted by Original Sin in order to wash away the
sins of all the people of Humankind. It is the pinnacle of all sacrifices made and is the one and
only sacrifice ever needed to be set free from sin, (see the Old Testament for how and why
sacrifices were made - they all foreshadow Christ's crucifixion).
These Old Testament sacrifices could only be done by a priest and one done annually. They
had to keep on sacrificing for the people and sacrifice had to be made for the priest himself
for his own sins, but Christ was/is spotless and sinless and is the perfect High Priest to offer
Himself as sacrifice one time and one time only. Only God could do this. Only God is pure,
spotless and sin-free. So only God Himself could be a worthy sacrifice offering for the sake of
the people of the world, that is, God in a human physical form - Jesus.

Colossians 1:
15 Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,
16 for through him God created everything
in the heavenly realms and on earth.
He made the things we can see
and the things we can’t see—
such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.
Everything was created through him and for him.
17 He existed before anything else,
and he holds all creation together.
18 Christ is also the head of the church,
which is his body.
He is the beginning,
supreme over all who rise from the dead.
So he is first in everything.
19 For God in all his fullness
was pleased to live in Christ,
20 and through him God reconciled
everything to himself.
He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth
by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.
21 This includes you who were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated
from him by your evil thoughts and actions. 22 Yet now he has reconciled you to himself
through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own
presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.

So, therefore, it is by and through the sacrifice of Jesus that we are saved and made
righteous by His death on the cross:

Romans 3:
21But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the
Law and the Prophets testify. 22This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus
Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, 23for all have sinned and fall short of the
glory of God, 24and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came
by Christ Jesus. 25God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his
blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins
committed beforehand unpunished— 26he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present
time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
27Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. On what principle? On that of observing the law?
No, but on that of faith. 28For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from observing
the law. 29Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles
too, 30since there is only one God, who will justify the circumcised by faith and the
uncircumcised through that same faith. 31Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all!
Rather, we uphold the law.
