Jesus and other savior figures

I've seen it probably dozens of times. Skeptics argue that Jesus is no different than the many, many savior figures of various religions throughout history. Alright, fine. Then why did only Christianity thrive while the others died out?

The fact is that Christ is different. His deeds and teachings were completely different from any other savior figure. And above all, he died to forgive our sins and rose from the grave to give us life everlasting. THAT is why Christianity survived and flourished.
