Question: I read an article about the Gospel of Barnabas known for his travel with the apostle Paul. I know this isn't biblical but do you know anything about this?

Answer: The so-called Gospel of Barnabas was not written by the same Barnabas who traveled with Paul. The oldest manuscript is from the 16th century and is written in Italian. It describes the origin of Christianity from a Muslim viewpoint, which makes it hardly worth reading.
