Another possible reason why "Mark" euhemerized Jesus

What if:

1) the Jesus figure was unique insofar he and he only did the act of redemption,

2) who posed as him was rejected just for a such act of explicit co-optation of the Jesus figure

The only way to derive power and authority from a such figure who is so powerful (for 1) and in the same time is condemned to have not people posing as him (for 2), is to invent an entire not-life on the earth for a such figure.

Just what "Mark" did.
