Early Syriac Text of the Gospel of Barnabas Found in Turkey?

Here is the link. I have always been interested in the substitution tradition (i.e. where Jesus and Judas or some other figure switch places before the crucifixion).  As I have noted here many times, the notion that Jesus was not crucified is very, very old.  It dates back to the second century.  Let's hope this is authentic.  Very, very exciting stuff, it isn't a fake.
