    It makes you wonder. Has anyone seen Santa's birth certificate?

    From what I've been able to find, up until this point there have been only 2 versions known of the Gospel of Barnabas, and both have been dated to the 14th or 15th centuries, pretty much considered to be non-authentic...redacted and harmonized versions of the canonical gospels, with Islamic theology inserted by the author(s).

    Decent explanations here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gospel_of_Barnabas

    Interesting to see what, if anything comes of this.

    Great point. 500-600 years after Jesus he supposedly wrote this?

    Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it believed that by the time Jesus was crucified people only lived 100-150 years? So, at the young age and right mind of 530-630 years old barnabas wrote this? Just doesn't seem to add up.

    On the other hand here is an interesting article on the data of the how the date of Jesus death was found.

    Well, in fairness, nobody's claiming what was found is from the hand of Barnabas himself...only that it's an authentic copy. Most of the oldest copies or fragments we have of the canonical New Testament is a couple hundred years older than that, but none of it goes back to the time of Jesus either.

    And as far as life expectancy at the time, 80 would have been considered ancient. 60 years old or so would have been considered having lived a good, full life.

    Off topic a bit but still interesting, the average life span in ancient Egypt was lower 20's. Easy to understand why they thought Ramses was a god when he lived into his 80's.

    that's because he never had to lift a finger in his entire life.

    There are no original texts of the bible. Only copies of copies of copies of copies....................until you get to 600 years. There are known additions made by scribes as well as older version that have been found after the official cannon came out with different text. In this aspect, Barnabus would be no different than books in the bible.

    I think a commoner in Roman times would have had an average life span of 35-40 years, with the rich maybe getting into their 70's at most.
