First of all you're absolutely wrong in claiming that the Bible was written hundreds of years after the death of Jesus. The Bible was not written at
any one time, since it is composed of various gospels or books, some of which were written around the time of Jesus, not hundreds or years later. In
fact, the Old Testament was written before Jesus. Long before. And the most important books of the New Testament were written not very long after
Regarding translation, many people claim that there are different meanings for each verse, etc, but the truth is that there is only one correct
interpretation. Bible translation has been around for about as long as the Bible itself, and for the most part the translations we have today are
accurate. Most scholars agree when it comes to translating the meanings of various pieces of text. The exact wording is also different from the
meaning. One can put a sentence into English in various ways, but still convey the same meaning.
It seems to me that you are attempting to stage an attack on a certain group of people. You can claim that a certain verse of the Bible has not been
translated correctly, but 9 times out of 10 you would be wrong. You claim that believers disagree that the translation is wrong, so how is that any
different from you claiming that it is wrong? You don't know that, and they probably don't either. But they are going to be right more times than
you, simply because of the thousands of translators who have worked with these texts for thousands of years. We have a pretty good idea regarding the
majority of translations by this time. There is only a small percentage of verses that might have been translated incorrectly.
But listening to some crackpot who claims something is wrong is not the way to go most of the time, because the majority of the time these people have
no formal education in the matter, and do not do it professionally. People spend their lives studying something like this, and I would much rather
trust someone who is fluent in these languages than someone who can't speak them at all, yet says the language is wrong.
I've studied the Biblical style of Hebrew for a while, as translations are something I took an interest in a long time ago. And as I read forums and
blogs and whatnot that were written by amateurs like myself, they would claim this or that was not correct. Well it would always turn out that the
problem was in their lack of knowledge of the language. Sure, there was a problem with the translation, but it was the way the amateur translator was
