The Jewish people by and large rejected Christianity and if not for Paul going out and recruiting among the pagans there would be no Christianity today. A lot of things about Christianity had to be "amended" to make it appeal to the Greeks and Romans, the virgin birth, for example, a staple of Mythology. And the "Trinity", eliminating the pesky "monotheism" and bringing Christianity more into line with the Roman and Greek ethos. Much of Mithraism was adopted into Christianity as well.
Did Christianity Steal From Mithraism?
Christianity is a direct copy of the Mithraic religion that was 200 years its predecessor. You can look in up in the Encyclopedia of World Religions. Mithra died for the sins of humanity, had 12 apostles, a last supper and most of the other tenets that Christianity copied.
