Actually, Jesus did not "found" the Catholic Church. Jesus was a Jew, as were most of his early followers. They saw him as the fulfillment of God's promise to them, and some of the Gospels are written from this point of view. Differentiation between Jews and followers of Christ as separate groups was difficult and happened over time after his death, and some of that struggle is recounted in the Acts of the Apostles. This is an interesting timeline, but the comments are a little oversimplified.
