1. The Gospel of Barnabas is more authentic than the NIV or KJV, meaning that human hands did not take out what they felt was un-modern Christian.
2. If the Gospel contradicts the Qur'an, then rumors that a Muslim wrote it or sneaked it into the Vatican where it was found on the Popes book shelf, are false accusations because no Muslim would write a Gospel that contradicted the Koran.
3. I strongly feel you are putting your faith too much in other peoples claims with out equally considering the other side.
4. Although the Gospel of Barnabas is contradicting to the Koran, this should make Christians want to validate it, I discovered why Christians want to discredit it so bad:
" Jesus, having received this vision, and knowing that he was a prophet sent to the house of Israel, revealed to Mary his mother, telling her that he needs must suffer great persecution for the honor of God, and that he couldn't any longer abide with her to serve her. " ( Gospel of Barnabas Ch# 10 )
" And when he had said this, the crowed drew high, and when they knew him they began to cry out: ' Welcome to thee, O our God !' and they began to do him reverence, as unto God. Whereupon Jesus gave a great groan and said: ' Get ye from before me, O mad men, for I fear lest the earth should open and devour me with you for your abominable words !' Whereupon the people were filled with terror and began to weep. "
( Gospel of Barnabas Ch# 92 )
" Then Jesus, having lifted his hand in token of silence, said: ' Verily ye have erred greatly, O Israelites, in calling me, a man, your God. And I fear that God may for this give heavy plague upon the holy city.....I confess before heaven, ....that I an stranger to all that ye have said; seeing that I am man, born of a mortal woman, subject to the judgment of God, suffering the miseries of eating and sleeping, of cold and heat, like other men,..Whereupon when God shall come to judge, my words like a sword shall pierce each one (of them) that believe me to be more than a man, " ( Gospel of Barnabas Ch# 93 ) Gospel of Barnabas: 93
This would expain Jesus being a Muslim
"...And though I have been innocent in the world, since men have called me "God," and "Son of God," God, in order that I be not mocked of the demons on the day of judgement, hath willed that I be mocked of men in this world by the death of Judas, makeing all men to believe that I died upon the cross. And this mocking shall continue until the advent of Mohammed, the messenger of God, who, when he shall come, shall reveal this deception to those who believe in God's law." ( Gospel of Barnabas Ch# 220 )
" ...After those years shall the angel Gabriel come into hell, and shall hear them say: "O Mohammed, where are thy promises made to us, saying that those who have thy faith shall not abide in hell for evermore?" 'Then the angel of God shall return to paradise, and having approached with reverence the messenger of God shall narrate him what he hath heard.' 'Then shall his messenger speak to God and say: "Lord my God, remember the promise made to me thy servant, concerning them that have received my faith, that they shall not abide for evermore in hell." 'God shall answere: "Ask what thou wilt, O my friend, for I will give thee all that thou askest." ( Gospel of Barnabas Ch# 136)
"....Wherefore, when the messenger of God shall come, he shall come to cleanse away all wherewith the ungodly have contaminated my book." ( Gospel of Barnabas Ch# 124)
This would explain likeness of Muhammad foretold in the current day Bibles
" The angel Gabriel answered: ' Arise Jesus, and remember Abraham, who being willing to make sacrifice to God of his only - begotten Ishmael, to fulfill the word of God, and the knife not being able to cut his son, at my word offered in sacrifice a sheep...." ( Gospel of Barnabas Ch# 13 )
" Abraham loved his son Ishmael a little more than was right, wherefore God commanded, in order to kill that evil love out of the heart of Abraham, that he should slay his son: which he would have done had the knife cut. " ( Gospel of Barnabas Ch# 99 )
This would explain the name switching in Genesis
"..Then God seeing danger of his servant, commanded Gabriel, Michael, Rafael and Uriel, his ministers, to take Jesus out of the world. The holy angels came and took Jesus out by the window that looketh toward the South..." ( Gospel of Barnabas Ch# 215 )
" Judas truly did nothing else but cry out: 'God, why hast thou forsaken me, seeing the malefactor hath escaped and I die unjustly?' Verily I say that the voice, the face, and the person of Judas were so alike to Jesus, that his disciples and believers entirely believed that he was Jesus; wherefore some departed from the doctrine of Jesus; believing that Jesus had been a false prophet, and that by art magic he had done the miracles which he did: for Jesus had said that he should not die till near the end of the world; for that at that time he should be taken away from the world. " ( Gospel of Barnabas Ch# 217 )
This would finally explain the tensions in the resurrection claims surrounding the resurrection.
