Unlike most myths, the Christian myth was deliberately created by a group of men with aspirations to both political as well as financial power.
Gods and Goddesses, evil as well as benevolent super-human deities created by other myths, were due to the humans desire to explain natural occurrences as well as his desire to dissuade enemies from planned aggression against himself.
The Christian myth, however, was a deliberate and planned institution designed by a small group of individuals well versed in the ability to manipulate human superstition. This group, of what was basically businessmen, studied the flaws in other religions as well as the problems experienced by the followers of these religions.
One of the major problems that they identified was the large amount of Gods and Goddesses contained within the opposing myths. This necessitated the followers of these myths to pay homage to a multitude of deities, thus resulting in less revenue to any central controlling body. The Jewish idea of a single God appealed to them.
They also took note of the popularity of religions that promoted a sense of association with their Gods and Goddesses via the concept of a semi, or man-god, theme. This, they saw, allowed the followers to identify with the heroes of the myths. A human, later to become a God, became the cornerstone of their story. The vast majority of their `target market' were, they realised, poor. In order for the poor to identify with the man-god, it itself would have to originate from humble beginnings.
In order to lend credence to the sale, it would have to have historical fact built into it. At the time, stories of a great man, Jesus the Nazarene, were in circulation. There were, in fact, small groups of people in Rome who actually lived by his philosophy. Not the perfect candidate, but with a little inventive imagination, good enough. Jesus, the man-god, was created.
Now for a name. This name would have to be something that the common folk, mainly the disenchanted Jews, would be able to recognise as their own.
Fifty years prior to this the Jewish group known as the "Krestons" (the perfectionists) had been banned from Rome due to their insurrection. The Romans still referred to the Jews remaining in Rome as Krestons. This would be the perfect name - Krestons. Not only would the Jews identify it as their own, but it would also give the impression that the new religion was "perfect". Christianity was created, and at the centre of the theme, Jesus the Christ - Jesus the `Perfect'.
