Iran’s Basij Press is claiming that a version of the Gospel of Barnabas, discovered in 2000, will show that Islam is the last and righteous religion and the revelation will lead to the collapse worldwide of Christianity.
Turkey confiscated a leather-bound text, composed on animal hide, in an anti-smuggling operation in 2000. Turkish authorities believe the text could be an authentic version of the Gospel of Barnabas, one of Jesus’ apostles and an affiliate of the apostle Paul.
This version of the Barnabas Gospel was written in the 5th or 6th century and it predicted the coming of the Prophet Mohammad and the religion of Islam, the Basij Press claims.
The Christian globe, it says, denies the existence of such a gospel.
Even so, religious scholars have stated another version of the Barnabas Gospel, discovered a century ago, was created less than 500 years ago, which would post-date Mohammad.
