Big deal. None of those writers saw Jesus. They wrote about the fact that there were Christians that believed something.

This would be about like me writing a story about a president that was thought to be great who was shot in the head in Dallas. I wasn't there. What I know about it came from other sources.

There is not a single historical source by anyone that actually saw him, not one.

It is pretty much an established fact that people believed a lot of things, and what we know about those things is that they were passed on verbally for a long time before anyone wrote them down, and they were written in Greek, not Aramaic.
