Much to the dismay of the Vatican, an approx. 1500-2000 year old bible was found in Turkey, in the Ethnography Museum of Ankara. Discovered and kept secret in the year 2000, the book contains the Gospel of Barnabas – a disciple of Christ – which shows that Jesus was not crucified, nor was he the son of God, but a Prophet. The book also calls Apostle Paul “The Impostor”. The book also claims that Jesus ascended to heaven alive, and that Judas Iscariot was crucified in his place.
According to reports, experts and religious authorities in Tehram insist that the book is original. The book itself is written with gold lettering, onto loosely-tied leather in Aramaic, the language of Jesus Christ. The text maintains a vision similar to Islam, contradicting the New Testament’s teachings of Christianity. Jesus also foresees the coming of the Prophet Muhammad, who would found Islam 700 years later.
During the Council of Nicea, where the first uniform Christian doctrine was polished, many believed that the Catholic Church had only handpicked the gospels that don’t pose any threats to the church. The gospel of Barnabas was omitted, to bring other gospels to the bible as we know it today.
This particular discovery, along with the gospels of the Gnostic and Dead Sea, seemed to startle the Vatican.
The biggest danger of faith is when people believe what they want to believe, defending against any and all evidence; especially when that evidence transforms their foundation from the ground up. And the biggest culprit to that danger is the ego trap: rejecting/criticizing others, for being unlike you.
