Where on earth do you get that definition of pagan?

I do not believe the word pagan was in the Bible. It is a Latin word meaning country person. Pagans could be, and were, quite religious. Roman Catholic Christians eventually converted "pagans" to Christianity by force, and "pro-pagan-da."

I think it was many Jews who were depicted in the stories in the gospels to have rejected Jesus. Not people practicing the state religion of Rome at the time (ie, worshiping Zeus and the other Olympic pantheon). Romans could, and some did, worship Christ as one of the pantheon.
