WHO WAS ST BARNABAS?
Born in Cyprus as Joseph, Barnabas was an Early Christian later named an apostle.
His story appears in the Acts of the Apostles, and Paul mentions him in some of his epistles.
The date, place, and circumstances of his death are historically unverifiable.
But Christian tradition states that he was martyred at Salamis, Cyprus.
He is traditionally identified as the founder of the Cypriot Church, with his feast day on June 11.
Since it is printed on the hinder parts of a camel, it is fiction.
Well, what we know is that the Gospel of Barnabas is not part of the Bible, and never has been.
So, whatever is in it, it has NO bearing on Christian theology, although a LOT of New Testament “scholars” may make much of it.
Not a bible. It’s an old book. Nothing more.
“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed” Galatians 1:8. Nothing else needs be said here.
Yes, and I’m Henry the Eighth I am, Henry the Eighth, I am, I am.
I'm familiar with that quote, not only in a Turkish version but also in all of my ancient and modern Bible versions. "This calls for wisdom, if anyone has insight, let him calculate the number . . . for it is the number of a person . . ."
Islamic teachings on the coming of their savior (our anti-Christ) states that the antiChrist will present the worlds religious leaders with long lost proof that Mohamed was the messenger of God and “endorsed” by Jesus.
He will then kill those who refuse to accept it.
It is the Apostle Paul who foretold the coming of the Prophet Muhammad
I wonder if the book is really 1,500 years old, or more like 1387 or less years old; making it’s compilation AFTER Mohammed??
A scam or a forgery. St. Barnabas was real enough, but this is just another of the endless efforts to subvert Christianity with fake documents.
There are some genuinely old documents that simply are not parts of the Bible. But since Mohammed himself was a fake, and the Muslim religion cannot be reconciled with the Bible on the basis of the “historical” facts it invents as well as the ideas it proposes—the Allah-approved goodness of rape, murder, slavery, and oathbreaking, for instance—the idea that Barnabas would have prophesied Mohammed’s coming hundreds of years before his birth is simply unreal.
The pictures are not very distinct, but even there it looks like a fake to me.
The only connection between Jesus Christ, King of kings and Lord of lords, and the child molester aka Mohammed (aka ‘slime of slime’ and ‘scum of scum’), is that the Former will be casting the latter into that eternal Lake of Fire where he will be burning for all Eternity.
