Copied: 1500 Year Old Bible
 Claims Jesus Christ
 Was Not Crucified -
 Vatican In Awe

 testa
 Much to the dismay of the Vatican, an
 approx. 1500-2000 year old bible was
 found in Turkey, in the Ethnography
 Museum of Ankara.

 Discovered and kept secret in the year
 2000, the book contains the Gospel of
 Barnabas - a disciple of Christ - which
 shows that Jesus was not crucified, nor
 was he the son of God, but a Prophet.
 The book also calls Apostle Paul "The
 Impostor". The book also claims that
 Jesus ascended to heaven alive, and
 that Judas Iscariot was crucified in his
 place.

 Authenticity
 According to reports, experts and
 religious authorities in Tehram insist that
 the book is original. The book itself is
 written with gold lettering, onto loosely-
 tied leather in Aramaic, the language of
 Jesus Christ.
