The Vatican is deeply concerned over a 1500-year-old Bible which was found in Turkey and rejects the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
Vatican authorities have called on the Turkish government to allow its experts to examine the content of the book, which was discovered and kept secret in Turkey in 2000.
Reports say the Turkish government has transferred the book to the Ethnography Museum of Ankara with a police escort.
Ankara said that the Bible had been snatched from a mob of smugglers in a Mediterranean region operation.
The book contains the Gospel of Barnabas, a disciple of Christ, and says that Jesus had not been crucified but ascended to heaven alive. St. Barnabas was an early Christian and is traditionally identified as the founder of the Cypriot Church.
It also says Jesus was not the son of God but a prophet who spoke the word of God, calling Apostle Paul “The Impostor.”
The text maintains a vision similar to Islam, contradicting the New Testament’s teachings of Christianity. The ancient book also foresees the coming of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
It is hand written in Syriac, a dialect of Aramaic, which is said to be the native language of Jesus Christ. Some experts and religious figures believe that the book is original, according to reports.

“We shall provide an adequate and well-measured response to NATO’s expansion towards Russia’s borders, and we shall take note of [the West] setting up a global missile defense architecture and building up its arsenals of precision-guided weapons,” said Putin, adding that the Western military alliance is “blatantly building up its forces in Eastern Europe, including the Black Sea and the Baltic Sea areas.”
