Summary of Barnabas

Date: 80-120 C.E.

Description: The Epistle of Barnabas is a Greek treatise written in the late first century or possibly the early second century C.E. The letter was attributed to Barnabas, the companion of Paul the Apostle and its inclusion in close proximity to other New Testament writings highlights the canonical authority it was given in many early communities. It deals with Christ-centered interpretations of the Hebrew Bible and scholars note it contains elements similar to later Rabbinic haggadah and halakhah.
