Vatican requests 1,500-year-old Bible held in Turkey

by The Huffington Post

Filed under: Featured,News |
The Vatican has allegedly issued an official request to examine a 1,500-year-old Bible that has been held in Turkey for the past 12 years, the Hurriyet Daily News reports.
The Bible reportedly contains early teachings of Jesus Christ and is written in gold lettering on animal hide in Syriac, a dialect of Aramaic, which was the native tongue of Jesus.
According to a report by National Turk, the Bible was seized from a gang of smugglers in a Mediterranean-area operation. The report states the gang was charged with smuggling antiquities, illegal excavations, and the possession of explosives.
Today’s Zaman reports that the Bible is under high security and that a Turkish daily newspaper, the Star, claims the book could be a copy of the Gospel of Barnabas — a controversial text which some claim is an addition to the original gospels — Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John — that was suppressed.
In it, Jesus is said to have predicted the coming of the Prophet Muhammad.
Due to its value as a cultural and religious artifact, even photocopies of the pages could be worth between 3 and 4 million Turkish Lira, or about 1,700,000 to 2,300,000 U.S. dollars.

Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) never invented any new religion. Islam means submission, Muslim means someone who submits his/her will to God. All the prophets of God (From Adam to prophet Muhammed) were submitting their will to God. That means they were Muslims. But later Christians invented the idea of Trinity and made Jesus (PBUH) himself to be God. None of the prophets (Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Muhammed, peace be upon them all) ever taught the idea of Trinity or claimed divinity. To accept the truth, we need sincerity.

Agreed with Lori Muraweh. Also when you guys said the original gospels "matthew, mark, luke and john" Errr, scholars of the bible already refuted that fact. Because they dont know who was the original author of "Matthew" and "Luke" etc. Because each book says different things about Jesus (for example when did they take Jesus for crucifiction, amongst many things). How they added the doctrine of Trinity in the 3rd century, how they deleted the exact samething in the mid of the 20th century (in the Revised Standard Version) as the scholars found out that it, the doctrine of the trinity, was not never in the oldest and most 'original' manuscripts, but only to have it placed back in the later edition. Very unreliable book from any point of view that book.

No matter how long human being suppressed or conceal the truth,ALMIGHTY ALLAH will one day reveal it.although those destined for Hell Fire will never be guided by this revelation.i would advice the turkish authority for ALLAH's sake to duplicate and translate this revelation in millions copies so people may be guided by it.they should never give the original copy to the vertican or else the truth will be lost again.

He is predicted all over the current Bible as well. Watch the YouTube lecture by Ahmed Deedat "Muhammad in the Bible." He is referred to BY NAME (Muhammad-im) in the original Hebrew in Song of Songs of Solomon 5:16.
