My understanding of the Jewish religion back in the time of Christ was that there were a lot of radical people living in the region coming up with some revolutionary things (for the times). We have records of several of these figures. While I don’t have any doubt that Christ the man walked the earth (I have no reason to doubt that), I don’t think he was any more special than other prophets of the era - he was just more popular with the masses. I don’t attribute any divinity to him at all. I think that he got real popular after he died and people have been trying to piece together things about him that they may or may not really know.

That and they tie him to the Son of God thing, something that will inevitably make people pay more attention to him and allow people to draw a narrative that is difficult to disprove or prove.
