Secret 14million Bible in which 'Jesus predicts coming of Prophet Muhammad' unearthed in Turkey
Daily Mail ^ | 2/25/2012 | Daily Mail

Posted on 02/25/2012 11:40:31 AM PST by Dallas59

A secret Bible in which Jesus is believed to predict the coming of the Prophet Muhammad to Earth has sparked serious interest from the Vatican.

Pope Benedict XVI is claimed to want to see the 1,500-year-old book, which many say is the Gospel of Barnabas, that has been hidden by the Turkish state for the last 12 years.

The £14million handwritten gold lettered tome, penned in Jesus' native Aramaic language, is said to contain his early teachings and a prediction of the Prophet's coming.

I believe Jesus DID predict the rise of the AntiChrist, and his Prophet.

Anything written in Gold purporting to be of God, is not.

Take a look at the clowns on TBN in their gold chairs.

Jesus came and humbled himself.

Only when he returns will he be glorified.

Anybody with ANY spiritual sense would not be taken in by this.

Jesus predicts *fart...farrrrt* the coming of the *fart* Prophet Mohammed *fart...fart....fart*

Sounds like crap to me.

That said: Jesus was a Jew. He wouldn’t be allowed in Muslim states today. Furthermore, Christian beliefs are heresy to Islamic doctrine.

Give me a break.

Pope allegedly said he'd like to see it. So would I, for that matter. Doesn't mean anyone is going to believe it says what the ragheads say it says.

It’s a lie straight from the pit of Hell and the antichrist spirit.

Mad mo wrote an antichrist book. It’s quite plain in the reading.

Do a search of the Bible, you won't find mohammad in there either, except where it talks about false prophets such as J. Smith and mohammad.

Just my opinion, but I do not think a spiritual person should give it the time of day.

I know, I know, it's the know your enemy thing for some. This is just not for me, same as listening to gossip, don't want to hear it.

I agree with the others... read Islamic Anti-christ. It is uber -enlightening. I do not think it is Muhammad He predicted as Antichrist, it is the Mahdi. The Islamic antichrist perfectly describes the return of Jesus. Muhammad was covered under the false prophet teachings..

Throne? Peter was a fisherman who died (crucified, according to tradition, upside down). Peter never had a throne.

Not sure of what?

Investigating an alleged historical document doesn't in any way imply acceptance of the content.

Church investigations can take years or even centuries.

They don't presume to know it all a priori like some half-cocked protestants.

Where did I say "Not sure of what?" hmm.

Half cocked prostestants??? you are getting very rude with that one.

You did not see me say anything disparaging about the POPE/CHURCH. Only that by now they should know what they believe in and not entertain some false religion. That is truth, not disparaging.

Stop calling prostetants names, please. Prostetants don't know everything either, but we do have the BIBLE for truth and don't have the need to entertain others.

"Take a look at the clowns on TBN in their gold chairs."

I was on the board of an Assemblies of God church one time and we had a picnic and bonfire out back of the church. We went inside and got the "thrones" of the stage and threw them on the fire. They went up real nice.
After that the hierarchy got to sit with their families and the rest of the folk where they belonged.

Barnabas was not one of Jesus’ personal contacts, so just another pretender. The poope will love it.

As regards the "Gospel of Barnabas" itself, there is no question that it is a medieval forgery. A complete Italian manuscript exists which appears to be a translation from a Spanish original (which exists in part), written to curry favor with Muslims of the time. It contains anachronisms which can date only from the Middle Ages and not before, and shows a garbled comprehension of Islamic doctrines, calling the Prophet "the Messiah", which Islam does not claim for him. Besides its farcical notion of sacred history, stylistically it is a mediocre parody of the Gospels, as the writings of Baha'Allah are of the Koran.

The Concise Encyclopedia of Islam, Harper & Row, 1989, p. 64

So, the claim is that the Turkish manuscript is an earlier version of a manuscript which has been judged by Christians and Muslims to be a medieval forgery. So either it will be found to be completely unrelated when it is studied, or it will be an old apocryphal manuscript which may have formed the basis of the medieval work.

Hope your right, that is a baseless rumor. Hate to think the good POPE would need to entertain this false document.

Second paragraph above: Pope it is claimed would like to see it. Your right it does/could be just a rumor with the "it is claimed" part.

This is Muslim propaganda. The the 1500 year old Syraic Bible hasn’t been restored enough to read.

It isn’t a new document. It has been around for a while and you can find translations of the text on the internet. What the news is is that it has been recovered from thieves, after having been missing for about 15 years. It reads like Muslim propaganda.

Let me be clear, there are pretend Christians of all types.

Catholic, Protestant, etc.

There is no mediator between God and man, except Christ Jesus.

Likewise there are REAL Christians in most every denomination.

God is good about hiding his sheep all over, so the wolves can’t take them out all at once.

Someone in the Vatican said that Pope said he'd like to SEE it. Doesn't mean the Pope believes there is any validity to it.

I just wonder if the scientists examining the artifact will bring as much skepticism to it as they did to the Shroud of Turin.
