Why does God need to be a man and die for our sins? (Part 2)

Did Jesus die for our sins?

Christian: People were giving sacrifices in the Old Testament for forgiving their sins, so Jesus was the sacrifice so that people don’t need to do that anymore.

Muslim: Could God has just sent a lamb as He did with Abraham’s son when He sent a lamb instead of letting himself die for people? The Old Testament didn’t say that the atonement will be God Himself, but in most cases it was a lamb, and He could have easily redeemed people like what He did with Abraham and his son.
