1500 Year Old Bible Claims Jesus Christ Was Not Crucified .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 books itself is valued as high as 40 Million Turkish Liras (approx. 28 mil. Dollars).
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.
The text maintains a vision similar to Islam, contradicting the New Testament's teachings of Christianity. Jesus also foresees the coming of the Prophet Muhammad, who would found Islam 700 years later.
It is believed that, during the Council of Nicea, the Catholic Church hand-picked the gospels that form the Bible as we know it today; omitting the Gospel of Barnabas (among many others) in favor of the four canonical gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Many biblical texts have begun to surface over time, including those of the Dead Sea and Gnostic Gospels; but this book especially, seems to worry the Vatican.
Hopefully, this news inspires the religious to ask questions, instead of pointing fingers or believing anything blindly.Please, don't go poking fun or tossing around the “I told you so!”s. The biggest danger of faith is when people believe what they want to believe, defending against any and all evidence; especially when that evidence revolutionizes their foundation from the ground up. And the biggest culprit to that danger is the ego trap: rejecting/criticizing others, for being unlike you.
When it comes to the life and times of one Jesus Christ, how much do wereallyknow? Although Christian iconography widely depicts Jesus as having been nailed to the cross, historians claim there's actually not much evidencethat crucifixions actually involved a hammer and nails.
As Dr. Meredith J. C. (coiDiscovery News, Romans weren't always keen on piercing the hands and feet of those with a cross to bear; often, they chose to affix them to the wooden posts with ropes tied around their wrists (less messy, you know?). In fact, some scholars have argued the original Biblical texts never actually mention crucifixion, let alone nails, in relation to Jesus' death, according to theTelegraph.
The Catholic Church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence; the biggest possessor of material riches than any other single institution, corporation, bank, giant trust, government or state of the whole globe.

The Pope, as the visible ruler of this immense amassment of wealth, is consequently the richest individual of the twentieth century. No one can realistically assess how much he is worth in terms of billions of dollars! Yet, he has made a comment about Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Together and people protesting, making it seem as if he is out to defend equality of all - when it is him and his corrupt organization that have been accumulating wealth by baby trafficking, abusing the masses, keeping them ignorant and infiltrating the nations in politics, economy, education, and more.

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. A report by The National Turk says that the Bible was seized from a gang of smugglers in a Mediterranean-area operation. The report states the gang was charged with smuggling antiquities, illegal excavations, and the possession of explosives. The books itself is valued as high as 40 Million Turkish Liras (approx. 28 mil. Dollars). Man, where is the Thieves Guild, when you need them?

The Vatican has asked Turkish authorities to let them examine the contents of the book within the Church. Now that the book has been found, will they come to accept the it and its evidence? Will they deny it altogether? Call it a “Muslim lie”, as did the “Truth” Magazine, in 2000? To many, this book is a beacon of hope, that believers soon realize that the object of their adoration is arbitrary; and that all text, especially religious text, is subject to interpretation. What does this mean to atheists/agnostics/secular thinkers? Is the text real? Fake? Does it matter?

For centuries, the “defense” of blind faith has driven nations to war, violence, discrimination, slavery and to become the society of automatons that we are today; and for just as long, it has been justified with lies. If you know better, act like it.
The earliest non-biblical testimony of Jesus from the writings of Jewish writer Flavius Josephus(37-100 AD) “At that time also there appeared a certain man of magic power!… if it be meet to call him a man, [whose name is Jesus], … he was a man of simple appearance, mature age, black-skinned, short growth, three cubits tall, hunchbacked, ‘with a long face’ , a long nose, eyebrows meeting above the nose … with scanty [curly] hair, but having a line in the middle of the head after the fashion of the Nazaraeans, with an undeveloped beard.”source
Very curiously the forensic image of Jesus is similar to this description! Then what about the Shroud of Turinimage!? One thing is clear that the image is very likely a photo of a man in standing position! Otherwise his long hairs will not cover his ears when lay down!? (Remember the photography was not yet invented at that time!)
If it was created, it must have been done by someone with extraordinary skills. The evidence points to one man, one of the greatest geniuses who has ever lived-Leonardo da Vinci. The fabric could have been hung over a frame in a blacked-out room and coated it with silver sulfate, a substance readily available in 15th century in Italy which would have made it light-sensitive. When the sun's rays passed through a lens in one of the walls, da Vinci’s facial shape would have been projected on to the material, creating a permanent image!
"6And so Simon Peter also came, following him, and entered the tomb; and he saw the linen wrappings lying there,7and the face-cloth which had been on His head, not lying with the linen wrappings, but rolled up in a place by itself.…"
Both Sudarium and the Shraud of Turin are venerated as the holy relics of Jesus by the catholic church. If sudarium was covered on the face of Jesus, and on it there is no image of Jesus, then how could the Shroud of Turin got the image of Jesus!? And that is faith!?
- Each artist drew Jesus according to their imagination and information they had of Him, so they must be different!? - Or did the church influenced them or wanted them to create His image how they wanted!? - It seems exactly the church wanted to recreate the image of Jesus in the very likeness to another god, the Greek god ZEUS!? - Just because the new religion has to substitute the old one and the new god the old god as well!?
5. Jesus: "...a noble and lively face, with fair and slightly wavy hair; black and strongly curving eyebrows, intense penetrating blue eyes and an expression of wondrous grace...." as the church want Him to be, a royal blood!
- You read only what the church tell you, the rest are in the INDEX!

…The fragmentary text, written in an Egyptian Coptic language, is controversial not only because Jesus appears to refer to his wife, but also because it discusses the worthiness of a woman named Mary for what might have been a leadership role. Here are a couple of other intriguing phrases: “she will be able to be my disciple” … “I am with her,” as in “I dwell with her.”…..
The papyrus fragment was purportedly acquired by an East German collector in the 1960s, sold to its current owner in 1999, and made available to King for study in 2011. The owner has remained anonymous, adding to the mystery surrounding the scrap’s origins.
Skeptics, including Vatican officials, insisted that the text was a modern-day forgery because the phrases were ungrammatical and appeared to be inexpertly cribbed from other apocryphal scriptures in circulation.
To settle the argument, researchers subjected the business-card-sized scrap of papyrus to radiocarbon tests and micro-Raman spectroscopy. One of the carbon-dating tests indicated that the papyrus went back somewhere between the year 659 and 869, with the most likely date around 741. Other tests showed that the chemical makeup of the ink was consistent with inks that were used between the first and the eighth century.
Per Harvard study-
BOSTON - New scientific tests suggest a fragment of papyrus in which Jesus speaks of "my wife" is more likely an ancient document than a forgery, according to an article published Thursday by the Harvard Theological Review.
The text, which is written in Coptic and is roughly the size of a business card, specifically contains the phrase "Jesus said to them, my wife."
Karen King, a Harvard professor of divinity, says the papyrus probably dates to eighth century Egypt, based on radiocarbon dating and tests on the ink's chemical composition.
"If it was written in the eighth or even the ninth century, it's still an ancient document," she said in a conference call Thursday. "It's not a modern forgery."
But, she stressed, the fragment doesn't prove that the historical Jesus was actually married. Most reliable evidence from early Christianity is silent on Jesus' marital status, King added.
If anything, she says, the papyrus provides insight into early Christianity's debates over family life.
"Early Christians were extremely interested in whether or not they should marry or be celibate or whether it was OK to have a family or whether one should remain virginal," King said.
King said the papyrus, which contains about eight partial lines of text, appears to make the case that mothers and wives can be disciples. Jesus references his mother, wife, and another female as his disciples apparently discuss whether a woman — identified as "Mary" — can join their ranks.
According to King's translation, the text then reads "Jesus said to them, "My wife ..." That is followed in the next line by "... she is able to be my disciple ..."
King originally revealed existence of the papyrus in 2012. Calling it the "Gospel of Jesus's Wife," her announcement sparked debate among religious and ancient scholars. But publication of her findings was delayed for the tests. King maintains the "gospel" moniker was appropriate.
While the papyrus is too small to discern anything definitive about who composed it, King argued Thursday that the text belongs to a body of ancient texts that illuminate facets of Jesus' life. "It contains a dialogue between Jesus and his disciples," she said. "That would normally put it in the category of gospel."
King hopes the research puts to rest questions about the text's authenticity.
But Brown University Professor Leo Depuydt, in an analysis also published Thursday by the Harvard Theological Review, was not convinced. He said the text contains grammatical errors that a native Coptic speaker would not make. King suggested in a phone interview that the text is written in an informal style that is found in other ancient Coptic texts.
Others have questioned the mysterious provenance of the papyrus.
King says she obtained the text in 2011 from a donor that wants to remain anonymous. That owner had purchased the text in 1999 from a collector who, in turn, had acquired it in East Germany around 1963.
