Iran’s Basij Press claims the Gospel of Barnabas, discovered in 2000, will cause the collapse worldwide of Christianity.
Turkey confiscated the text, written on animal hide, in an anti-smuggling operation. Turkish authorities believe it could be an authentic version of the Gospel of Barnabas by the apostle known for his travels with the apostle Paul.
Basij Press contends the text was written in the 5th or 6th century and predicts the coming of Muhammad.
The Christian world, it says, denies the existence of such a gospel.
Another known “Barnabas Gospel” dates to the late 16th century, which would post-date Muhammad.
In the Barnabas text held by Turkey, chapter 41 states: “God has hidden himself as Archangel Michael ran them (Adam and Eve) out of heaven, (and) when Adam turned, he noticed that at top of the gateway to heaven, it was written ‘La elah ela Allah, Mohamad rasool Allah,’” meaning Allah is the only God and Muhammad his prophet.
The Turkish army has taken possession of the text because the “Zionists” and the governments of the West are trying to suppress its contents, Basij Press claims.
According to the Barnabas Gospel in Turkey’s hands, Basij Press says, Jesus was never crucified, He’s not the Son of God and He, Himself, predicts the coming of Muhammad.
The Basij report concludes that the discovery is so immense, it will affect world politics, and that the world powers have become aware of its impact.
Turkey plans to put the Bible on public display. Though Turkish authorities believe it could be an authentic version of the Gospel of Barnabas, others believe it only goes back to the 16th century and is a fake because it would have been written centuries after Muhammad’s life.
Erick Stakelbeck, host of the Christian Broadcasting Network’s “Stakelbeck on Terror” ” show and a close observer of Iranian affairs, said Iran is highlighting the book because it sees Christianity as a threat.
“The Iranian regime is committed to stamping out Christianity by any means necessary, whether that means executing Christian converts, burning Bibles or raiding underground churches,” he explained.
“In promoting the so-called Barnabas Bible – which was likely written sometime in the 16th century and is not accepted by any mainstream Christian denomination – the regime is once again attempting to discredit the Christian faith. Record numbers of young Iranians are leaving Islam and embracing Christ, and the mullahs see Christianity as a growing threat to their authority.”
The Vatican has requested to see the text, but it is unknown if Turkey has provided access.

This is bulls–t! If you have seen the Dead Sea Scrolls you would know they didn't make "books" then. They may be correct about the hides, but it makes more sense for them to be done on papyrus "paper" and they would have been rolled not bound. What a better way to try to topple Christianity then to announce they have found written information and only there people can see it. No one from the West or Zionist's can see or try to establish the validity of these texts. What pork bologna!
Gold has value because. It is very diFficult. To find….same as money…..u look for it…Christianity doesn't go after people with guns and bombs because it has value…its your personal decision…any discovery that doesn't recognise Jesus haa son of God is a fairy tale because He brought hope and salvation to the world…compare His preaching and that of Muhamed…
