The Gospel of Barnabas: The Biography of Jesus Christ, as Recounted in New Testament Apocrypha

Sale price$13.63


The Gospel of Barnabas is one of the New Testament Apocrypha, which narrates the life of Jesus Christ as seen by Barnabas, who in this book is depicted as of the Twelve Apostles. Altogether, Barnabas is roughly equal in length to the four canonical Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, it being a biography of Jesus Christ. It is noted for attributing Jesus with a prediction of the Prophet Muhammad, whom he calls 'Ahmad'. Jesus foresees but preemptively rejects his own deification, which is also consistent with the Islamic account of his life. Jesus also makes a direct plea to Barnabas shortly before his crucifixion, asking that he write the Gospel. Many academics and Biblical scholars of the modern day consider The Gospel of Barnabas to be a text written far later than the original New Testament Gospels, perhaps between the 14th and 15th century AD. Its contents combine the narrative of the Biblical gospels, together with the Islamic interpretation of the life of Christ.
