The key thing is the difference between Monotheism vs Polytheism.
Jesus and the Judeo-Christian mob were the first bunch to come along and say hey, no, there are not hundreds of little gods all behaving like
crazy-assed children, there is but One God who created Everything.
Ha so now there is just one crazy assed child running the show.
Monotheistic ideas are older than the Jesus and the Judeo-Christian mob as you put it.
Emperor Constantine believed in the supremacy of Sol Invicta the supreme Sun God.
His monotheistic leanings made his conversion to Christian monotheism seamless.
Had he not worshipped Sol Invicta by frequently staring into the face of his God perhaps his burned retinas would not have had a vision of a cross in
the sky already a symbol of the fledgling Christian cult active in Rome at the time. This literally blinding revelation he related to his victory in
battle by way not of skilful soldiering, but obviously because of the crosses he had adopted as his sigil.
As Emperor, Christianity became the 'official' state religion and here we are!
A bit like IS, and all other warmongers who believe that winning a war proves that their own personal 'God' is all powerful and supports them.
So it becomes the new 'official' religion by co-opting/destroying what existed before.
Its a constantly churning sea.
