Gospel of Barnabas

I meant Gospel of Barnabas

The Gospel of Barnabas has been dated to the sixteenth century... The earliest manuscript was written in Spanish... If Barnabas did write it, he would have been sixteen hundred years old, fluent in Spanish, and contradictory to his depiction in Acts. Luke, who is a well-established historian, says that Barnabas was a devout believer in Christianity who supported Paul's ministry. The Barnabas in the late Gospel of Barnabas was anti-Paul. Again, this Gospel would not even have been around 500 years after Muhammad's time so there was no way he was referring to this obscure and nonexistent forgery.
