A 1500 year old Bible discovered in Ankara, Turkey’s capital, claims that Jesus Christ was not crucified and not the son of God but a prophet.
The Bible, as reported by The National Turk, with other antiquities and explosives was recovered from a gang of smugglers in a Mediterranean-area operation in year 2000 and kept in the Ethnography Museum of Ankara.
The book which contains the Gospel of Barnabas, one of Jesus Christ’s disciples, claims Judas and not Jesus was crucified, that Jesus was a prophet who ascended to heaven alive. There have been divisions among religious scholars on the authenticity of the ancient Bible whether it is original or fake.
Some scholars have branded the Gospel of Barnabas Bible as forgery written during the Middle Ages. The Vatican has officially requested to examine the content of the 1500 year old Bible from Turkish authorities.
The ancient version of Bible is believed to be written on pages made of animal hide in the Aramaic language of Syriac, a dialect of the native language of Jesus. Turkish authorities described the bible as a cultural asset worthy of being protected in a museum.
This ancient manuscript believed to be worth 40 Million Turkish Liras ($28 Million) carries excerpts of the Bible written in gold lettering on leather and loosely strung together.
