Turkish Authorities Claim to Have Seized Early Biblical Text

Bible and archaeology news

Turkish media outlets report that Turkey is in possession of a 1,500-year-old Biblical text that was seized by police in 2000 during a raid on a smuggling operation. The text, which is written in Syriac on bounded leather sheets, is currently being held and studied by the Ankara Ethnography Museum, and some reports claim that the Vatican has also submitted an official request to examine the manuscript. While there are few details on the book’s contents, some reports indicate that it may be a copy of the apocryphal Gospel of Barnabas.
