Am I missing something with this statement?

Those groups did not exist till about 1300 years after he lived.

Exactly. Plus, Shiites and Sunnis are Islamic and Jesus would not have associated with Islam. Not just because Islam wouldn't exist for over 600 years; but because Islam rejects His diety, thus Islam is a religion of Satan, not of GOD.

If I owe Rome 1k and then tax collector says I owe 1.5k he takes my money sends the 1k to Rome and keeps the .5k for himself.

It was a hated profession for 1) collecting the taxes for the Romans and 2) over taxing the people and stealing their wealth.
Yep, a good modern example of this would be the Judenrate - which were Jews that the Nazis entrusted to maintain order among all the other Jews in the ghettos - before they were all shipped off to concentration camps. They were seen as traitors by the Jewish people, since they were only interested in their own power and self-preservation.
