Could it simply be that,long long ago, people found the super goody-goody JC (as child) a bit hard to swallow and gave him, from their point of view, a more credible behaviour in tune with their own experiences and observations? Furthermore, who knows what stories were being circulated in those far-off days by illiterate and semi-literate itinerants? As we know all too well from the boulevard/red-top/gutter press, if you package the story properly then the masses will believe anything, no matter how far-fetched.
