It all depend's on how old it is, was it a true gospel of barnabas kept by the syriac orthodox church which is the church founded by the OTHER
apostles and grown out of the messianic first century jewish synagogue who do and did accept him as the son of the most High, if so why was it lost or
even ignored by them, they were never part of the conclave of nicenea and there teaching's are almost identical to the orthodox and catholic churce
except they hold there catachysm in Arameac as well as write in arameac.
I think it is more likely up to 1500 years old and probably written about the ninth century, there were a lot of rewritten bibles which where retro
edited by muslim scholars to be more as they believed accurate to the koran, in fact I agree this is probably a relgiously inspired fake (fake is
subjective as to those that believed and wrote it they though they were writing the truth since they were islamic devotee's).
There has been a raft of these book's appearing lately, now even though I do think this is a later work dating after the time of the foundation of
islam it is a heretical work but nevertheless an important document, I would dearly love to see some expert's on both first century gramma and
seperate dating of both the material, the glue used to adhere the gold leaf and any glue in the gold matrix as I think it may even be a much more
recent forgery possible constructed for the antiques market.
Remember the family who worked out of there back garden shed here in England who hood winked the university's of the world with there art forgery's,
true artists nevertheless and a good but very expensive laugh.
