The Shroud of Turin is a remarkable relic, though precisely how remarkable is up for fervent debate. I'm not here to attempt to prove one position or another-- I have my beliefs and surely you have yours, and either way the preserved image of a crucified man has been used to create a striking figure.

Just read the theory that it was not Christ, but Jacques de Molay. Quite a compelling argument...

I thought he was burned at the stake?
Finally, after torture, yes.

The nose looks more Italian than Jewish. I suppose people moved around that area over the the last couple of thousand years. Maybe many Italians are similar to Jewish people

They are genetically related, there is quite a bit of information on the subject. Pretty much everyone in the mediterrainean basin is related.

If this is what it takes to help someone believe in Jesus Christ, then I feel sorry for them. They don't know what faith is all about. Besides, when you lay a cloth over somebody's face, this is the image you get:

If you're looking for artist's representations, might I suggest Michelangelo.

It's good to see Jesus was so ripped. Maybe he took steroids?

Would give a new meaning to the phrase "Jesus juice".

If he was in a chamber aka Tomb , when he was placed there and his body was still in that position. and placed the Shroud under and over him .. for a few days

Actually they were usually wrapped in the shroud..........not placed over them like on a morgue table........just a small correction there......

Well... unless its Permanent.. the holding place .. which wasn't likely for Jesus ... i think it said that it the bible .. if i can remember right .. the Supposed Shroud came from a Friend of Jesus a Wealthy Hebrew Joseph of Arimathea actually a table cloth ..

My Guess he was Cleaned and bathed then had the shroud placed under pulled over on some slate .. then soon too be
placed on some hold .. then Wrapped ... and why Wrapped well... it would be wrapped tightly from head too toe for the Purpose too conceal the Bones and Body matter in the decompose process .. and Why! ??

for the main reason, Was too place what is left of the Decompose Body in too a Ossuary BOX .. Bone Box ..
it would of been unwrapped and the Bones would be placed in a Ossuary Box and then placed in a Family Tomb


An ossuary is a chest, box, building, well, or site made to serve as the final resting place of human skeletal remains. They are frequently used where burial space is scarce. A body is first buried in a temporary grave, then after some years the skeletal remains are removed and placed in an ossuary. The greatly reduced space taken up by an ossuary means that it is possible to store the remains of many more people in a single tomb than if the original coffins were left as is.

as a youngster I was brought up Roman Catholic... it was common knowledge among Catholics that the Face of Jesus was preserved for history in a relic known as the Veronica Veil

Over the last few centuries, primarily since the miracle in 1849 in the Vatican where Veronica's veil became very vivid and glowed for 3 hours in front of all present, it became a custom in the Vatican to display Veronica's veil on Passion Sunday for veneration to the public.

i know the Veil looks like hokum and an obvious fake relic (conjured by a fanatically religious Catholic follower with some art talent)

but this 'veil' of the Jesus 'face' as he was carrying his cross... was the single most accepted iconic image the Vatican Endorsed

The Shroud was wispered about by a few of the Progressive Clergy, but was relatively unknown-undiscovered and un-appreciated in the 1950s-1960s...

prior to the JFK assassination of the only Catholic President in history & the sudden 'awakening' of the World-in-General -> leading to the publicity of the Mystery Shroud-of-Turin in all Its' high technology aspects becoming apparent in the blossoming 'Space Age'

Be warned they made massive assumptions about huge amounts of data needed to make this model.

This is silliness. Turin is a hoax that has never even been dated and proved to be from the time of Jesus. I feel bad for people that buy into this stuff.

Spare your pity.

Surely people are doing just fine regardless of their take on this particular piece of history.

I also remember that as one of the Stations of the Cross. It wasn't until I was older that I found out that it was not part of the canonical Gospels at all. And if they're going to ritualize that, then they should also ritualize child Jesus making birds out of mud and killing his little playmates, because those are also non-canonical stories.

Being punched in the face, kicked, being whipped with sharp tips until the skin tears off before crucifixion are standard practice during Roman times. As for shrouds, many cultures and religions have used shrouds as part of their burial rituals. Crucifixion is not something that originated from Rome. Ancient Japan also execute criminals by crucifixion. It's common.

Just because someone discovered a shroud with all those cuts and blood prints on the shroud, does it automatically mean it's the Messiah?

People nowadays will believe in anything without giving it a critical thought. *facepalm*

Did you read the OP?
Go ahead and read it before commenting. Thanks

Explicitly NOT stated in OP is any definitive assertion as to the identity. In my opinion, this is a remarkable piece of history and perhaps something more amazing, perhaps not.
