The Dead Sea Scrolls, The Gospel of Barnabas, and the New by M. A Yusseff

By M. A Yusseff

No matter if the Gospel of Barnabas is real or no longer is a query tied to a different query -- no matter if Jesus is God incarnate or now not. For if Jesus isn't God, then the current gospels of the hot testomony disintegrate and the quest for an genuine gospel turns into inevitable. The lifeless Sea Scrolls, The Gospel of Barnabas and the hot testomony does a commendable activity of authenticating The Gospel of Barnabas and within the method opens up a wholly new box of analysis. The useless Sea Scrolls, ever given that their discovery in 1947, have intended many stuff to many. opposite to evangelic claims, their discovery has introduced no significant facts to reinforce conventional Christianity according to the hot testomony. The proof awarded to this point is of a doubtful nature and the reason is flimsy to assert the least. in line with Yusseff's thesis, Jesus' coming didn't demand the abolition of the Abrahamic religion or the establishment of a brand new religion in line with the vicarious sacrifice of a man-god. He continuously continues that Jesus is a hyperlink within the continuation of the Hebrew culture. this can be an incredibly very important aspect simply because until eventually his coming, the Abrahamic religion was once restrained to the slender racial and parochial issues of the Israelites. Jesus broadened their issues and diluted their inflexible confines. That this ended in termination of the Israelite dispensation used to be inevitable. yet universalizing the Abrahamic culture by way of enlarging upon its legislation used to be left to a different son of Abraham, Muhammad (pbuh).
