Secret Bible in which ‘Jesus predicts coming of Prophet Muhammad’ found in Turkey

London: A recently re-discovered 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 said 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 14 million pounds 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, the Daily Mail reported.
The leather-bound text, written on animal hide, was discovered by Turkish police during an anti-smuggling operation in 2000.
It was closely guarded until 2010, when it was finally handed over to the Ankara Ethnography Museum, and will soon be put back on public display following a minor restoration.
A photocopy of a single page from the handwritten ancient manuscript is thought to be worth 1.5 million pounds.
Turkish culture and tourism minister Ertugrul Gunay said the book could be an authentic version of the Gospel, which was suppressed by the Christian Church for its strong parallels with the Islamic view of Jesus.
He also said the Vatican had made an official request to see the scripture – a controversial text which Muslims claim is an addition to the original gospels of Mark, Matthew, Luke and John.
Despite the interest in the newly re-discovered book, some believe it is a fake and only dates back to the 16th century.
The oldest copies of the book date back to that time, and are written in Spanish and Italian.
Protestant pastor Ihsan Ozbek said it was unlikely to be authentic.
This is because St Barnabas lived in the first century and was one of the Apostles of Jesus, in contrast to this version that is said to come from the fifth or sixth century.
He told the Today Zaman newspaper: “The copy in Ankara might have been written by one of the followers of St Barnabas.
“Since there is around 500 years in between St Barnabas and the writing of the Bible copy, Muslims may be disappointed to see that this copy does not include things they would like to see.
“It might have no relation with the content of the Gospel of Barnabas,” Ozbek added.
Theology professor Omer Faruk Harman said a scientific scan of the bible may be the only way to reveal how old it really is.

  1. The b11ble of Barnabas is a book which has striking resemblence to the holyQuuuran and because of this the vat1can centuries back hid it from truth seekers since it shakes the very foundation of khr1stian1ty which is belief in tr1nity & son-of-G0D concept.

    No surprises if this book turns out to be genuine since this is what is written inQuuuran whether any one believes it or denies it.

    Our scholars have said on record that poooranas and ved1c are the words of GG0D to guide humans, then came other holy books such old & new !testament, Psalms and finally once final versionQouran which is the final version of the above series that teaches all that is required to achieve salvation.

    So it is upto each individual, aceept – you are saved, reject – you are responsible for being in he11 forever with no hope of any kind to get out of it. GGod already said in theQouran :

    “This (holyQouran) is a Message for mankind (and a clear proof against them), in
    order that they may be warned thereby, and that they may know that He is the
    only One GG0d – , and that men of understanding may take heed”.
