***Has the Bible ever been wrong?***
Yes. Genesis got the days mixed up

***Just remember that the Bible(Christianity too) had the greatest opposition to its creation of any religion known to man.**
No. By the time the bible was prevalent, Christianity was already the state religion of Rome. No opposition at all. Before 325AD, and after 100AD when the writings of the bible were largely completed, the writings in the bible existed, but were not yet collected in the form of a book.

***Just think for a minute. Did Buddha or Mohammed live in a society where almost everyone wanted them dead?***
Neither did Jesus. You seem to be guilty of anti-Semitism. Actually the Jews existed in such a society for centuries.

***In 30 years, the Jews couldn't even catch Jesus in a lie.***
For 30 years according to the bible, Jesus grew in wisdom. Then he began his ministry as you imply below.

***They just waited for chance kill under there own laws.***
No. Under the Jewish law he would have to be stoned to death. The Romans killed Jesus in accordance with their laws.

***When he said he was the Son of God, then they crucified him.***
He never said he was the son of god. He explicitly said he was the son of man. He may have meant Joseph- meaning that he was not devine. Or perhaps using the 'son of man' term he was delivering a higher message- like men can become god. Besides the old testament is full of sons of gods that coupled with women who were not daughters of gods. So saying he was the son of god, since he knew the Torah completely, would just identify him with the ancient Jews of the Torah.

***He taught and ministered for only 3 or so years, yet his life changed society more than any other person that ever lived. Your calender is based on his life. It is 2002 A.D. ***
Yes. That is very true. But your perspective of him and his relationship to the Jews is really screwed up. He was a Jew. He said you cannot get into heaven if you do not keep all that laws of Moses. To do that you have to be Jewish. So he was saying that only Jews could get into heaven.

After his death this issue, whether it was necesaary to be Jewish or not, was the main debate among the Apostles. Then Saul/Paul came along and opened up Christianity to the Gentiles.

In the end the Gentiles took over Christianity and made it the penalty of death for rabis to teach Judiasm. [If Jesus were to come back as a Rabi, he would be killed. Maybe he already tried a few times only to be killed by Christians.]

Hence came the birth of anti-Semitism that we still see as evident today.
