I get the feeling

That early Christianity wasn't much different in some respects, from modern Christianity.
If they were expecting Jesus to show up today -incognito- and rise to prominence, PROVING himself to be the real Jesus Christ .... what do you think would happen?
One Jesus after another would show up, rise to some prominence, be hailed as the REAL THING .. and then slide off into obscurity, as another one came along to replace the previous.
HOWEVER ... the STORIES or traditional understandings of each Jesus would NOT pass away! The best of each would survive and be amalgamated into the ongoing saga.
I think that may be what happened with the Jesus character too. The best parts were kept and ascribed to newcomers ... until they got this impressive library on all of his activities and teachings.
