Untitled[edit]

The Epistle of Barnabas should be put on the internet for free, and made easy to find. The Gospel of Barnabas is available that way, and many people I suspect mistake it for the the Epistle.

This page seems to be a testimony of the book's authenticity, although being disputed (no claim of authenticity dispute is noted here). --IronMaidenRocks (talk) 15:21, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Interesting article on the BBC[1] claims "Anti-Semitic writings... the Epistle of Barnabas. This goes out of its way to claim that it was the Jews, not the Romans, who killed Jesus, and is full of anti-Semitic kindling ready to be lit. 'His blood be upon us,' Barnabas has the Jews cry." and a quote from Professor Bart Ehrman "The suffering of Jews in the subsequent centuries would, if possible, have been even worse had the Epistle of Barnabas remained". 78.105.220.50 (talk) 15:56, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Part of Roman Catholic Canon?[edit]

I'm puzzled about the presence of these three navigation templates at the end of this article:

Since the Epistle of Barnabas does not appear to belong to the RC canon of the New Testament, why are these templates here? Thanks. --TraceyR (talk) 20:00, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
