Christ's face reconstructed from Shroud of Turin

March 29, 2010 | Comment icon 22 comments



Image Credit: Wikipedia
An image of what some believe to be the real face of Jesus has been computer generated from the Turin Shroud.
A new History Channel documentary entitled "The Real Face of Jesus" will be aired next week. Many however believe the Turin Shroud to be a hoax and that the image will not be that of Jesus no matter how accurately it has been reproduced.
Jesus' real face was "recreated" by taking the encoded information and the blood on the shroud and then transforming it into a 3D image, Ray Downing, president of Studio Macbeth, told The Post.

I watched this show on the *History* (edit) Channel last night. It was very interesting how they derived the 3-d image from the shroud. I've always been a bit skeptic about the shroud and even I found this show pretty interesting. There are still too many open gaps about the shroud that keeps me a skeptic about it, but overall I really like this show. Yeah, I want to see it, mostly out of curiosity. I too am skeptical about the shroud, so would not say it is the face of Christ. However, if the shroud at some point was actually used as a burial shroud for someone, it is interesting to see this ... [More]

In any event, black, white, brindle, handsome, ugly, short, tall, etc etc, it doesn't amount to a hill of beans.

The one ure I know of about Jesus' appearance: Isaiah 53:2 (prophecy) King James Version (KJV) For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

who ever thinks jesus was white needs to go back in the bible and look at the deion they give of him and where he exactly was... have u ever seen white people in the middle east uhhhhh nooo Could that just be an interpretation? Could this simply be an early deion of the outward differences between the skin colours of a middle eastern person, and an african person? Caucasian peoples have been in the middle east for a very long time. One might not have to be snow white to be considered fair.

To all those who think that the shroud is authentic, try this little experiment. Take a white cloth, and wrap it round your face. Get a family member to take a pen and draw around you eyes,mouth,nose and ears. Then open it out. You will find that the drawning of your face is elongated, with the ears sitting way out to the sides. When we look at the shroud we don't see this effect we see a 2 dimensional representation of a face, similar to a painting. This proves that the shroud wasn't wrapped around a body.What we are actually seeing an excellent example of medieval Camera Obscura. It is essen... [More]

I was under the impression that they proved that the Shroud was a fake about 4 years ago. Hmmmm guess not. I though the Shroud was proven as fake many times over.

The shroud has been tested and tested. In this day of technology they still can't say for sure if it is real? It may be a death shroud. However, how do we know it is supposed to be this Jesus' shroud? Why won't the Catholic Church allow more tests? And how did they end up with it anyway? I still need proof of Jesus much less a shroud.

(necro much?) But I think we can be pretty sure it isn't Jesus' death shroud. 1) I think it was dated to around 1200-1300 (C14 can be somewhat inaccurate but generally only +/- 10 years on items less than 6500 years old). 2)Any proper scientist would have taken multiple samples from different areas of the shroud, so the claims that it had newer fixes in some places doesn't work, what's the probability that they managed to only hit these "fixes"? 3) there is a dark colour on the hand/wrist, but you wouldn't put a nail through the carpal bones. Either it could go through the hand (it is possible... [More]
