That may have been the original agenda of Yeshuas mission to the world. To present, or moreso, reintroduce the worship of the one G-d to the non-Jewish nations.
It took only a few generations (the coming of the gnostic paul) for that spiritual agenda to go horribly wrong.
In anycase, Christianity has accomplished its world historical purpose. Christians - 1/3rd of the world, know of the G-d of Israel.
here's another time factoid. most scholars using Bible timeline date creation to about 6,000 years ago. if G-d goes by the original calender, there are six days of labor, and one of rest. in prophetic terms this would be the 'Millenial Reign', 1,000 years of a peaceful world with Jerusalem as the capital. which suggests that that 7th day is...real soon.
You mention that 'Yeshuas's' mission may have been to introduce the Jewish God to the world. Yeshuas stayed pretty local (Galilee, Jerusalem etc) although he did despatch disciples to preach further field.etc. He appears to have concentrated on the Hebrew peoples themselves.

According to biblical chronology, we are in the 5771 year since the creation of "Adam".
In the year 1948 (biblical time), Abraham, the founder of the people of Israel, and of ethical monotheism was born.
Rabbinic writings as far back as the Jerusalem Talmud (200 CE) reckon his birth as this year (the calculations indicate this).
Now AMAZINGLY ENOUGH, in the secular yearm, 1948, the state of Israel came into being. Either this is a ridiculously implausible coincidence, or a synchronism that suggests something very special about this event.
Remember, when Abram, then a pagan. (It wasnt until he was 75 that G-d commanded him "go forth from here" ie; from your secular paganism) was told by G-d to gorth from Ur Casdim, he was still living under a pagan government. He certainly didnt like it, but he stayed. Not until a GENERATION later (a generation is reckoned by the bible as 70 years) did Abraham leave.
The state of Israel was founded in 1948. Its first 62 years have been defined by a humanistic secularism. Exactly that which Abram sought to escape when G-d commanded him to leave Ur Casdim.
In recent years, the orthodox population of Israel has grown enormously to the point that 70% of Israeli 2nd graders are Haredi (orthodox Jews). Orthodox Jews are known to have atleast 7 to 15+ children. They have certainly bolstered their numbers and presence and have increasingly become a force to be reckoned with in Israeli politics. The "settlers" often depicted as militants by the western and israeli media, are infact peace loving 16-21 year old religious Israelis seeking to settle the lands of biblical Judea and Samaria (aka west bank).
In addition to this, more and more american Jews, Israeli Jews and a large number of gentiles are "converting" to the traditional Hebraic tradtion, which lost its appeal thanks to the illusions of the 'enlightenment' or haskalah, as it was called in Hebrew.
So, I think were seeing somethintg very incredible here. In the next decade, this very large Haredi population is only going to get bigger. By the 75th year, atleast, of the Jewish states existence, we might expect to see the people of Israel, the Jews, return to their ancestral faith. And it could be around this time that Moshiach Ben David, the king which will lead all G-d fearing people back to the path of truth (that is, ethical monotheism, through the 7 laws of Noach) will arrive.
