I have no idea as to why he did not hang around and do the savior bit at the time of his supposed resurrection and why Jesus abandoned the ancients and us to the conditions we have faced.
Even today, about 16,000 of us starve to death daily, 75 million of us are recognized slave and at least 1 billion women are still oppressed by men. Not to mention all the gays that we have denigrated and discriminated against, without just cause, all this time.
As believers, you may also have pondered why such a long 2000 year wait.
This delay cannot be because of our free will because God of the O T clearly demonstrated that He had not respect for it and He certainly did not consider the free will of those that He killed or had killed back then. Their free will choice was to live, not die.
If he wanted relevance to us, I would think that he would be here and not an absentee God.
Could it be that Jesus is just a myth or is He just slow?
What is quickly in God time?

Yes, we were warned about people like you.
"Scoffers will come in the last days, scoffing...saying 'where is the promise of his coming?'" (2 Peter ch3 vv3-4)
Isn't it amazing that the Bible would be able to predict you so exactly?
Nobody knows the answer to your main question. Sorry.

8Dear friends, don't ignore this fact: One day with the Lord is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like one day.
9 The Lord isn't slow to do what he promised, as some people think. Rather, he is patient for your sake. He doesn't want to destroy anyone but wants all people to have an opportunity to turn to him and change the way they think and act.
