Decisions: A discussion between Bart Ehrman & Mike Licona


Should You Believe the Gospel of Barnabas?

 In Blog, Short Videos, Videos

Muslims often appeal to the Gospel of Barnabas, claiming it’s the most accurate of all the Gospels. Although leading Muslim apologists such as Ahmed Deedat and Zakir Naik do not promote the Gospel of Barnabas, they will not deny its authenticity. In this video, Dr. Licona provides several reasons for holding that the Gospel of Barnabas is a medieval forgery written sometime after AD 1300. Even Muslims should reject it, since the Gospel of Barnabas contradicts the Quran in several places. The Gospel of Barnabas also contains several anachronisms and mistakes the real apostle Barnabas of 1st century Palestine would not have made.
