New study claims Turin Shroud is authentic

December 21, 2011 | Comment icon 75 comments

Scientists in Italy have claimed that the mysterious shroud couldn't have been forged in medieval times.
The authenticity of the Turin Shroud, an ancient burial cloth bearing the image of Jesus, has been the subject of numerous studies over the years with varying results. Many believe the shroud to be a medieval forgery due to radiocarbon testing dating it to between 1260 and 1390, while others dispute this based on the claim that the shroud was repaired with contemperary cloth after being damaged in a fire around that time. The latest study however suggests that the image on the shroud could not have been produced in the 13th century and therefore can't be a hoax.
Italian scientists have conducted a series of advanced experiments which, they claim, show that the marks on the shroud – purportedly left by the imprint of Christ's body – could not possibly have been faked with technology that was available in the medieval period.

The bible tells us of the method fullywired

I hope this is helpful... Other old trans that were not included in the Western Christian Canon nor the Coptic Canon reveal the respect the Romans had for local religions* as long as the people of that religion acknowledged the emperor as a god. (I realize that we all already know the respect part of that statement). Thus, we are told the oral tradition up until the writings, that at noon it had gotten so dark that the soldiers in charge of the crucifixion of the three men were in fear that they would have a situation on their hands--of not removing the crucified dead prior to sunset, as the l...

If you look good enough it's like you see two horns coming from his head, lol I have remained silent, as I will from now on but this, well, enough please. I ask some respect. Your statement is way overboard. Mods, just delete this reply. I would just as soon remain silent from now on. I enjoy this site but things like this are getting out of hand for me. Thanks, Robbie333

would Joseph have wrapped him in the Jewish way or the Roman way...?...i ask this because under a dictatorship...you follow the dictator.. im probably wrong in my thoughts...,,btw...i do not think the shroud is Christ...just of the time.. In what seems to be the small portion of the Gospel of Peter that we have remaining, the narrative starts of with Herod saying that they could take Jesus and do as they wish to him. Then it says that when Joseph, who was a friend of both Pilot and of Jesus, when Joseph heard they were going to crucify him, he asked if he could have the body when they was done... [More]

Then it says that when Joseph, who was a friend of both Pilot and of Jesus, when Joseph heard they were going to crucify him, he asked if he could have the body when they was done, so that he could bury him. Thus, it seems he could have done either as easily as the other. The respect for the religious practices would give permission for the Jewish way. The status of the people governing a land would tend to influen... [More]
