Epistle of Barnabas  


The Epistle of Barnabas is a Greek epistle containing 21 chapters.

In no other writing of that early time is the separation of the Gentile Christians from observant Jews so clearly insisted upon. The Epistle explains many Torah laws as having a spiritual lesson as their main purpose. For example:

  • The prohibition against eating pork is intended to forbid the people to live like swine, who supposedly grunt when hungry but are silent when full
  • Likewise, the people are not to pray to God when they are in need but ignore Him when they are satisfied.
  • Similarly, the prohibition against eating rabbit means that the people are not to behave in a promiscuous manner
  • The prohibition against eating weasel is also to be interpreted as a prohibition of oral sex, based on the mistaken belief that weasels copulate via the mouth.

    Scripture Type:Church Father - Apostolic
    The Church Fathers are ancient and generally influential Christian theologians, some of whom were eminent teachers and great bishops. The term is used of writers or teachers of the Church not necessarily ordained and not necessarily "saints".

    The Apostolic Fathers were Christian theologians who lived within the first 100-years who are believed to have personally known some of the Twelve Apostles, or to have been significantly influenced by them. Their writings, though popular in Early Christianity, were ultimately not included in the final canon of the New Testament. Many of the writings derive from the same time period and geographical location as other works of early Christian literature that did come to be part of the New Testament, and some of the writings found among the Apostolic Fathers seem to have been just as highly regarded as some of the writings that became the New Testament.
