Secret £14million Bible in which ‘Jesus predicts coming of Prophet Muhammad’ unearthed in Turkey

  • Vatican ‘wants to see’ 1,500-year-old ancient script
  • Has been hidden by Turkish state for 12 years
  • Handwritten in gold-lettered Aramaic
A secret Bible in which Jesus is believed to predict the coming of the Prophet Muhammad to Earth has sparked serious interest from the Vatican.

Pope Benedict XVI is claimed to want to see the 1,500-year-old book, which many say is the Gospel of Barnabas, that has been hidden by the Turkish state for the last 12 years.

The £14million handwritten gold lettered tome, penned in Jesus’ native Aramaic language, is said to contain his early teachings and a prediction of the Prophet’s coming.

The leather-bound text, written on animal hide, was discovered by Turkish police during an anti-smuggling operation in 2000.

It was closely guarded until 2010, when it was finally handed over to the Ankara Ethnography Museum, and will soon be put back on public display following a minor restoration.

A photocopy of a single page from the handwritten ancient manuscript is thought to be worth £1.5million.

It rejects the ideas of the Holy Trinity and the Crucifixion and reveals that Jesus predicted the coming of the Prophet Muhammad.

In one version of the gospel, he is said to have told a priest: ‘How shall the Messiah be called? Muhammad is his blessed name’.


Born in Cyprus as Joseph, Barnabas was an Early Christian later named an apostle.

His story appears in the Acts of the Apostles, and Paul mentions him in some of his epistles.

The date, place, and circumstances of his death are historically unverifiable.

But Christian tradition states that he was martyred at Salamis, Cyprus.

He is traditionally identified as the founder of the Cypriot Church, with his feast day on June 11.

And in another Jesus denied being the Messiah, claiming that he or she would be Ishmaelite, the term used for an Arab.

Despite the interest in the newly re-discovered book, some believe it is a fake and only dates back to the 16th century.

The oldest copies of the book date back to that time, and are written in Spanish and Italian.

Protestant pastor İhsan Özbek said it was unlikely to be authentic.

This is because St Barnabas lived in the first century and was one of the Apostles of Jesus, in contrast to this version which is said to come from the fifth or sixth century.

He told the Today Zaman newspaper: ‘The copy in Ankara might have been written by one of the followers of St Barnabas.

‘Since there is around 500 years in between St Barnabas and the writing of the Bible copy, Muslims may be disappointed to see that this copy does not include things they would like to see.

‘It might have no relation with the content of the Gospel of Barnabas.’

Theology professor Ömer Faruk Harman said a scientific scan of the bible may be the only way to reveal how old it really is.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim

    (In the name of Allah,The most beneficent and The Most Merciful)

    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is mentioned by name in the Song of Solomon chapter 5 verse 16:

    “Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem.”

    “His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.”

    In the Hebrew language im is added for respect. Similarely im is added after the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to make it Muhammadim. In English translation they have even translated the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as “altogether lovely”, but in the Old Testament in Hebrew, the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is yet present.

    Gospel of John chapter 16 verse 7:

    “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you”.
    “Ahmed” or “Muhammad” meaning “the one who praises” or “the praised one” is almost the translation of the Greek word Periclytos. In the Gospel of John 14:16, 15:26, and 16:7. The word ‘Comforter’ is used in the English translation for the Greek word Paracletos which means advocate or a kind friend rather than a comforter.

    Paracletos is the warped reading for Periclytos. Jesus (pbuh) actually prophesised Ahmed by name. Even the Greek word Paraclete refers to the Prophet (pbuh) who is a mercy for all creatures.

    Some Christians say that the Comforter mentioned in these prophecies refers to the Holy Sprit. They fail to realise that the prophecy clearly says that only if Jesus (pbuh) departs will the Comforter come. The Bible states that the Holy Spirit was already present on earth before and during the time of Jesus (pbuh), in the womb of Elizabeth, and again when Jesus (pbuh) was being baptised, etc. Hence this prophecy refers to none other than Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

    Adam Old Boy, The father of Christianity as we all know it was Paul, his original Name was Saul, of Jewish decent who was in love a lady belonging to Ceasars house, but was rejected because he was of Jewish decent so he goes to Damascus and sees a vision and thus began the Roman Catholic Church, which sold to the pagan Romans by altering their belief of Zeus the Big God who has a Son Appollo with a Human Mother……all the original Bibles with anyother belief were burned by the Roman Emperor except Paul’s version of Christanity because that was the easiest to sell to the pagans of Rome……….
    The rest as they say is history!

    And this…

    Acts 4:8-12
    8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: “Rulers and elders of the people! 9 If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a cripple and are asked how he was healed, 10 then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. 11 He is “‘the stone you builders rejected,which has become the capstone.” 12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”

    @ Mariner
    You’re either very IGNORANT of the Bible or you’re a LIAR…
    Your supposed biblical verse “Jesus said” and he shall come after me and he shall glorify me and bear witness to what i have said. And he shall not speak from himself but of what is told him and his name shall be Mohammed”
    DOES NOT EXIST in the Bible… PERIOD.
    But this does…
    Luke 22:70 They all asked, “Are you then the Son of God?” He replied, “You are right in saying I am.”

    John 1:14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

    John 1:17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

    “You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

    John 5:36 “I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the very work that the Father has given me to finish, and which I am doing, testifies that the Father has sent me.

    John 8:58 “I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”

    John 10:38 But if I do it, even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.”

    1 John 5:20 We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true–even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.

    1 John 5:1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.

    John 8:42-47
    42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me. 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? 47 He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”

    John 3:16-
    16“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,f that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.g 19This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.”
    John 3:36
    Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.”l

    As a Catholic school kid and now a Muslim this is old news to me.

    It is funny to see how people fight against Islam so hard. I did too but then just accepted that it is the truth.

    The gospel of Barnibas is the truth and the Koran is Gods own truth!
    Stop fight it and accept it. Jesus was not the Messiah back then but he sure as hell is the Messiah NOW and we shall be seeing him very soon. All the muslims are waiting for Jesus, Mohammaed talked about his coming many times in the Hadiths.

    Islam makes sense so just go with it.

    Also do not call Jesus Yeshua, it is a horrible curse in a Hebrew, which is what the rabbis used against him. Call him by his real name Esa.

    oh wait.. that is what the muslims call him so you’ll never accept it and will instead accept the jewish lie and continue cursing him…. lol

  6. Mr Frost says:

    More lies and disinformation. I’m so glad I quit drinking the Kool-aid. I know Mohammed’s status was created by the church to use for Dialectical purposes. Muslims have made Convenient enemies for one another and if the truth was known I’m sure there is collusion between the two hierarchies at the very top. This is obviously a plan by the BEAST SYSTEM to create dissension between the ignorant. of both Religions.

  7. madeleine7 says:

    What absolute nonsense – both the article and Adam´s comment , not to mention Karmen´s contribution!! I am sure that the Vatican is not remotely interested in this obviously fake offering. Go on trying to deceive people…….. Satan ( and through him, Islam) is truly “The Father of Lies.”

  8. Falak Sher Khan says:

    I dont know where yopu get these kind of weird Informations, Adam is an idiot & so are you Karmen if that are your true names, now a days you can put any kind of story on the net for so long that it becomes some kind of authority on it & search engines such as google and yahoo working on their default seeting put up these kind of nonsense that Khajida was a christian or jesus said that he was God, plz atleast read Bible or Quran that is present in printed form so that it can be atlest authenticated. Net has made everyone so dumb now a days that most of us has become too much superstitious or somewhat fascist. O waht the hell do what ever your want like it matter.

  9. Karmen Nava says:

    It is strange that suddenly so much is being unearthed at this time frame in history. Yes, I read that the Roman Catholic Church created Islam and it seems very possible because they have similar beliefs particularly because they both embrace the Queen of Heaven whom was a goddess very much venerated and worshipped before Jesus/Y`shua was born. The information of the Queen of Heaven is found in the book of Jeremiah. This is the title the Catholic Church gave to Miriam, Y`shua/Jesus`mother. Lately we have been seeing a lot of articles published on another Jesus called Sananda who claims he was the Jesus that Christendom worships. If this other Jesus does not fit the characteristics of Jesus/Y`shua from the Scriptures (who embraced the Old Testament) then this personality will be another Jesus. There is great rapport between Islam and the Vatican. You can see how Islamic leaders venerate the Papacy just by seeing their photographs when they have audience with him. Also Fatima is a famous Virgin who appeared in Portugal and coincidentally Fatima was Muhammad`s daughter. This also bonds the Catholic Church with Islam. Don`t be lazy readers search out the information, you will find it just as Adam one of the commentators did.

      Do u have a mind?
      Catholic Church created Islam to Destroy itself, Islam is the fastest growing in the world
      The Quran says
      And when Jesus son of Mary said: O Children of Israel! Lo! I am the messenger of Allah unto you, confirming that which was (revealed) before me in the Torah, and bringing good tidings of a messenger who cometh after me, whose name is the Praised One. Yet when he hath come unto them with clear proofs, they say: This is mere magic. (6) And who doeth greater wrong than he who inventeth a lie against Allah when he is summoned unto Al-Islam? And Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk. (7) Fain would they put out the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light however much the disbelievers are averse. (8) He it is Who hath sent His messenger(Mohammed) with the guidance and the religion of Truth, that He may make it conqueror of all religion however much idolaters may be averse. (9)

      and say
      (And when Allah saith: O Jesus, son of Mary! Didst thou say unto mankind: Take me and my mother for two gods beside Allah? he saith: Be glorified! It was not mine to utter that to which I had no right. If I had ever said it, then Thou wouldst have known it. Thou knowest what is in my mind, and I know not what is in Thy Mind. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Knower of Things Hidden? (116) I spake unto them only that which Thou commandedst me, (saying): Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. I was a witness of them while I dwelt among them, and when Thou tookest me Thou wast the Watcher over them. Thou art Witness over all things. (117) If Thou punish them, lo! they are Thy slaves, and if Thou forgive them (lo! they are Thy slaves). Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Mighty, the Wise. (118) Allah saith: This is a day in which their truthfulness profiteth the truthful, for theirs are Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they are secure for ever, Allah taking pleasure in them and they in Him. That is the great triumph. (119) Unto Allah belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is therein, and He is Able to do all things. (120)

  10. Adam says:

    I know I’m going to hurt a lot of feelings here, but, this is playing out just perfectly. Muhammad was not the Messiah. If Christ had said these two things, then, it would make Christ a liar for He claimed Godhood many, many more times to His apostles. So, if Christ said one thing about Himself and then another, totally opposite thing, then that would make the “prophet” Muhammad WRONG, and therefore not a prophet at all. For even IF Christ said the above, which there is no doubt in my mind He did NOT say it, then, that would make Christ, or Jesus not even a prophet, because again, it goes back to the qualifications of prophethood, which, Muhammad never met I might add. And if Muhammad said that “Jesus WAS A GREAT prophet”, when He wasn’t one to begin with, then, that like I say, would make Muhammad wrong.

    Here’s facts: Not facts you most likely will like to hear, but facts nonetheless.

    Khadija was a Christian. A Catholic none the less. So was her uncle. Where Muhammad got most of his Christian learning. He was Catholic (her uncle). The Catholic Church wanted to take Arab land, but they couldn’t. One, PR. Two, the Arab fighters were overpowering. So, they wanted to use that tendency toward fighting to their advantage. And instead of conquering them, they decided to make a tool out of them. Enter the plot to make Muhammad a “prophet”. They knew they had to corral the Arab’s fighting spirit. And the best way to do that was by providing them a religious leader, full of zeal, to follow.

    Remember in the Koran, Muhammad’s experience with “gabril” was not a pleasant one. And it was Khadija who prompted him to return to the cave. More than once when Muhammad din’t want to return. The CC (Catholic Church) who were adept in Magick, probably produced “gabril” for him. More than likely called up a demon and dispatched him to meet him there each time.

    Muhammad, though unbeknownst to himself, was a tool for the Catholic Church. And a useful one. And when he went before the Jews proclaiming his prophethood, they could successfully counter him. Cause even though they were snakes, they were snakes that studied the scriptures incessantly. They rejected him. That’s why he hated the Jews so bad. Because they would not confirm what he believed God through “gabril” had said. And the Christians, run by the CC was in on it, so they weren’t gonna go along with it either. So he waged a unending war against them. The 12th Imam is the Antichrist. It’s been set that way. And now, with this “new find” the CC is like “OH! Let’s take a look at that!” knowing that they need to turn world religion over to Islam. This gives them the reason they are looking for to convert the whole of the CC to Islam and thus try to force Protestants to follow suit.

    It was also added to a Bible right around the time that the Jews and Christians had rejected Muhammad as a prophet. So there is your motive as well.

      Dear Friends

      Before our christian friends start raising cain about this discovery and begin casting aspersions on the Prophet of Allah, I wish to remind Adam here that Jesus PBUH never claimed divinity.

      I know you have a few verses to you might quote to support your argument. So, go ahead and post them.

      I have a few from the bible as well.

      Let us compare notes.

    • Ella says:

      All what you both saying is not true at all. You know nothing about Islam, what I am reading is so silly and has nothing to do with Islam, you better google it and go read more facts about Islam.

    • Yaro says:

      Am very sorry for adam, for what he is saying is nothing but ignorance. What will u say about the Holy Qur’an? You know the bible is full cotradictions.

    • seed o cain lol says:

      you wrote all that and said nothing….

      i hate the term conspiracy theory…. lol but that is what that junk u wrote is.

      the muslims are right about jesus and mohammad came to return the world to the orginal teachings of jesus… trying to make islam out to be a tool of the catholic church or jews is just pathetic.

      Islam is what jesus preached, jesus is who the muslims model their prayers after… mohammed just brought the truth back and now that it appears before us we only attack it with stupidity…. the jews are laughing at us.

    • Mariner says:

      Karmen & Adam, ignorance indeed is bliss but little knowledge is dangerous, as has been proved by your preposterous or rather downright ignorant and stupid interpretation of religions. Your observations, devoid of any study of religions is based, apparently, on agnostic hearsay aggravated by Jewish and, maybe pagan input. My sincere advice to you is please eat, drink and be merry and avoid venturing into zones which require a lot of serious studying.
      FYI&G please note the following verse from the Bible, Jesus said” and he shall come after me and he shall glorify me and bear witness to what i have said. And he shall not speak from himself but of what is told him and his name shall be Mohammed” of course the name part has been omitted from the revised versions of the Bible.
      By the way if Islam is not right then how do you account for the alarming rate of conversion to Islam, especially in the West…..avg 30, 000 + / year in the US alone?

  11. Norman says:

    We will have to see if it is ever authenticated but I doubt that it will.
    In mean time I would take this with a pinch of salt.
