A lot of the beliefs and influences from Christianity as well as other related religions have come from bibles that have written about 2000 years ago when Jesus was alive. Bibles are the closest thing to hard proof of the existence of Jesus Christ. All the testaments that have been written sometimes do not coincide by having small differences within the text, most probably because there have been multiple authors, but never has the world seen a bible that would tell quite a different story, especially admitting that Jesus was not Crucified.
The bible isn’t really a bible, but a book written by Saint Barnabas, one of Paul’s associates. The book was discovered when some antiquity thieves had been caught in 2000 trying to smuggle the bible and other artifacts worth millions. The book is valued at $28 million and it seems to have references to the Gospel of Barnabas from the bible. The book is handwritten in Syriac an Aramic dialect which also happens to be Jesus’ native language.
What happened to Jesus?
Experts who have analyzed the book consider that it is at least 1500 years old, but it could be even older. Within this book, the story takes a very different approach. Instead of Jesus, Judas was the one crucified and Jesus rose to heaven while he was still alive. Another very important and different aspect is that the book does not present Jesus as the son of God, but only as a prophet who spoke the word of God.
The book also calls Apostle Paul an imposter which makes things really interesting as Saint Barnabas (the believed author of this book) was an associate of Apostle Paul. Would this mean that Saint Barnabas was forced by Apostle Paul to write a different story about Jesus? It is difficult to know, but this is an interesting aspect that sort of puts Christianity in a good light from biblical events, but other religions are overlooked, such as Islam.
If Jesus did indeed rise to heaven alive, then in the eyes of some people it would make much more sense based on belief. This would also conclude with some of the codexes written around the same time that mention Jesus coming back on Earth for a millennium to bring peace upon our world and eradicate any evil human beings.
Is the book real or fake?
When the new testament was written, the council from Nicaea (known as the first council in the history of the Christian church) chose the information that would go in this bible. They deliberately left out anything that has been mentioned in the Gospel of Barnabas as well as other gospels in favor of more canonical texts.
Why is it that only a group of people are able to choose what is considered “the right and true texts”? Some say that the council had a reason behind not choosing the Gospel of Saint Barnabas and it may have something to do with the missing information about Saint Barnabas’ death. There is no information about Saint Barnabas’ death, making him the only Saint that does not have his death mentioned within the scripture.
Even the Vatican caught a big interest in this aspect of biblical events, so much that he requested to see the book, but the Turkish government had refused his request without giving a reason. All of the experts that have been allowed to analyze the book state that the bible is an original and definitely not as many people have mentioned “a hoax”. Besides the rarity of finding someone nowadays not only understanding but being able to write in Syriac, the way the book is made is very traditional to those times. All of the pages are made from animal hide and the handwriting is very difficult to replicate.
There is a huge debate online that has been going on for years about the authenticity of the book as well as the information presented inside. However, in my opinion, it should all come down to belief as this is religion. Although, it seems that Christianity is very set in their biblical events and they would not people to think that things have happened otherwise. Let’s not forget that the archives at the Vatican Apostolic Library aren’t public and even for those that become scholars, they have to be over the age of 75 to gain access.
