Peace,in reading Sura2:146 in QXP the footnote says that "[...Historically ,the Gospel of Saint Barnabas ,which was accepted and widely read in the churches ,had 'Muhammad' in the exact Arabic form.But Pope Gelasius banned that Gospel in 496 CE for finding the Arabic name distasteful .It was only in the 16 th century when the Italian translation of Barnabas was discovered in Vienna ,Austria .But ,obviously ,translations can never be reliable as the original text]''
(1) The Gospel of Barnabas the one that Pope Gelasius banned is not the same as the one discovered(?)in the 16 th century for the following reasons.
(2)It contradicts the Qur'an in many places, it says that Prophet Muhammad is the Messiah,it says that
Prophet Jesus was taken up to Heaven alive,it supports the second coming of Jesus story found in N2I
(3)There are many geographical errors which Barnabas would have never made,the present copy is nothing more than a 16 th century forgery ,possibly by N2I follower/s and translation has nothing to do with the many discrepancies. I can present more proof,but I will leave that for later Posts. Tayo Pa
