Why does the Bible include how long those in the Old Testament lived, but not in the New Testament and not even Jesus?

It is my understanding that as MAN continued to sin... his lifespan was cut shorter and shorter. This was the consequence of his actions against God Almighty. Long life was attributed to righteous living, but in the New Testament, many people had turned to idol worship, child sacrifices, and debauchery of every kind. Therefore, in the New Testament, the focus was on salvation in Jesus Christ.
