This is totally in line with the Islamic end-time beliefs, that when the Muslim Mahdi appears, the Muslim version of Jesus will also appear and point people to the Mahdi. In the article, it is pointed out that the Vatican is 'interested' in seeing this 'Bible.'
Another very important prophecy that is playing out is the Prophecy of the Popes, which predicts that the next pope is the final pope, and the false prophet. My wife and I were discussing the sceneraios as to how all of this can play out, and how to reconcile the end-time beliefs of Islam and Catholicism.
In the Roman Catholic Church, the pope is the vicar of Christ. Could it be that the next pope, the vicar of Jesus, will indeed point the Roman Catholics to follow the Mahdi, or that he will channel the Christ-spirit to lead many astray. 2 Thessalonians 2 in the canonical Bible tells us that in the last days many who did not believe and love the gospel will be given over to the deception to believe the lie so that they will be condemned (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).
