My guess would be the fact that Christianity was "strange and new" but also small. The Romans could have tried to force Jewish people to conform, but they were (probably) so stubborn and so numerous as to make it not worthwhile. But since there were (initially) many fewer Christians, the Romans weren't so worried about having to deal with them.
