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".

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)
