In general, agricultural societies have been suggested by anthropologists to develop religions with unique characteristics, as opposed to religions in societies that live in the forest. So the Jesus religion has many of the characteristics of a typical agricultural society. It's certainly not about ancestor worship or animism. It's about a worldly king that will guide people to a promised land of milk and honey (both milk and honey come from domesticated animals primarily). So although not such a direct relationship, I think there is something legitimate to be said for the premise.
