Because Paul invented a new religion when he combined bits of Jesus'
stuff with bits of Greek mythology and spread it around the
Mediterranean. This was after the traditional Jewish followers of
Jesus were killed in AD70 when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem.

In later years the New Testament was created from this mish-mash by
later generations after all the originators had died.
