Turkey’s Only Bible

When I first saw a bible in the bookshelf of a friend of mine I became aware that I hadn’t seen this book in a while. Actually as long as I am in turkey. The low attention for Christianity may be a reason why they wouldn’t detect a bible for 1.500 years among them as finally happened last year.


Hang on, that is not right. They just don’t teach about it in school, but to be honest, what do we learn about the Islam? As much as to still assume that Turkish women are suppressed by their men. Or that Muslims do not want to blend in into German society. I am sure if they would have known the content of this ancient example in earlier years Allah would have maybe ruled my country as well. It says: Jesus foretold the coming of the Prophet Mohammed to the Earth. Turkish culture and tourism minister Ertugrul Gunay said the book could be an authentic version of the Gospel, which was suppressed by the Christian Church for its strong parallels with the Islamic view of Jesus. Oh oh, what should Christian people think? Jesus is said to have told a priest: “How shall the Messiah be called? Muhammad is his blessed name”. [Without comment] An official request worth $28 million was made by the Vatican to gain access to this old Bible currently held by the Turkish government in Ankara. Maybe this bible was just found randomly in a bookshelf as the bible I had found. By the way, I asked my friend why he kept a bible in his house. Could it be that he was the one Turk interested in the life of Christ? Okay that was really optimistic. He laughed.


– I now know that book leaves of the Bible are thinner than others. You can perfectly role a joint with them.
