Overview

The New Testament names 1st Century Jew named Joseph, a Levitical priest from the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, who became a follower of Jesus whose nicknamed Barnabas or "son of encouragement" (Acts 4:36-37). The church in Jerusalem sent Barnabas to Antioch to investigate the stories of Gentiles becoming Christians (Acts 11:19-30), and later the Holy Spirit would send Barnabas and the apostle Paul out from Antioch on a missionary journey (Acts 13:1-3).

The Gospel of Barnabas is a book depicting the life of Jesus, and claiming to be by Jesus' disciple Barnabas. Two manuscripts are known to have existed, both dated to the late 16th century and written respectively in Italian and in Spanish. The Spanish manuscript is now lost. The text now only exists in a partial 18th-century transcript. The Gospel of Barnabas in the Italian manuscript has 222 chapters, which makes it longer than the four biblical gospels put together. The majority of the book is devoted to an account of Jesus' ministry. Much of it harmonized well with gospel accounts but there is divergence, which is similar to the Islamic interpretation of Christian origins and contradicts the New Testament teachings. The Gospel of Barnabas was relatively unknown until recently when Muslims began publishing the text claiming it was the oldest or most authentic gospel.
