Gospel Of Barnabas

Recommended Posts

Why the modern Christians do not own and accept Gospel of Barnabas: simply because there is a lot in it which does not agree with their ideals and because there are in it a number of prophecies regarding the Prophet of Islam by his very name in unequivocal terms. There might be some later alterations, adulterations, and interpolations in it like almost all the other books of the Bible. There might have also been some misunderstandings or confusions of the writer himself in it. But its existence as a book written by Barnabas cannot be denied. Its subject matter, its language, its confident style, its exhaustive material on important themes which is elsewhere unavailable, and its presentation of the logical and reasonable themes are superior to the 4 Gospel of the NT of the Bible. It is unfortunate on the part of the Christians that they have deprived themselves of this valuable treasure of religious knowledge.

 

How could some Muslim scholar have written it? It was discovered by the Christians, it was introduced to the world by the Christians, and it was published by the Christians. The Muslims knew nothing about this "Gospel of Barnabas" until George Sale (AD 1697-1736) mentioned it[39] in the prologue (To The Reader) of his English translation of the Qur'an (AD 1734), named "Alkoran of Mohammed".[40] Then they got their foremost opportunity of going through it after its English translation was first published by the Clarendon Press, Oxford in 1907. Before its introduction by the Christian scholars in 1907, the Muslim scholars had no approach to it. All the Muslim literature, throughout the centuries, is void of any quotation from this Gospel. Had they known it, they must have profusely quoted from it, because it testified the Prophet of Islam by name.

:D Good points, brother. I've read some of the Gospel of Barnabas myself. When was it discovered?

A good siteto refer to is (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.barnabas(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.barnabas(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/[/url].

 

Apparently it was discovered in the period 1585-90.

 

The Christians completely reject it. Insha Allah, the original Hebrew version will come up somewhere to show them the truth.

 

Wassalam

I have been reading about the Gospel of Barnabas and it really does seem to be a complete forgery.

No true Muslim would accept this Gospel as truth, for it has many contradictions and it calls Muhammad the Messiah!
