Overview

The Gospel of Barnabas, not to be confused with either the Epistle of Barnabas or the Acts of Barnabas, is an alternate Gospel of Jesus Christ which contradicts the Biblical New Testament view of Jesus. This version is translated from the Italian manuscript, but there was also a Spanish manuscript, lost sometime in the eighteenth century until a copy was discovered in the 1970s. Both manuscripts were supposedly taken from an original Arabic text.

The Gospel aligns itself with an Islamic view of Christianity, and claims that Jesus predicts the coming of the Messiah Muhammad. It does not confirm Jesus' crucifixion or deity, and many consider it to be a pseudographical, late text.

LONSDALE RAGG and LAURA RAGG were a husband and wife team who edited and translated the Italian manuscript of The Gospel of Barnabas and wrote a detailed Introduction to the Book which raised several convincing arguments as to why most scholars regard the document as false.
