Shroud of Turin may not be a Fake after All

The Shroud of Turin may be the most famous sacred relic in the world. And it may not be a fake after all.

One of the most studied and pondered object of religious admiration and wonder is the Shroud of Turin. If ever there was a relic that attracted so much attention as direct evidence of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion, ascension and resurrection, this is it. 

Shroud of Turin is basically a large piece of cloth that bears the imprints of the body of a man who was crucified way back in the timeline when history got split into BC and AD.

According to History, "The first documented reference to the shroud dates back to the 14th century. Historical records suggest it changed hands many times until 1578, when it wound up in its current home—the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, Italy. The Catholic Church has never taken an official position on the cloth’s authenticity, but the Vatican has made statements attesting to its value and arranged for public viewings.

The advent of photography in the late 19th century forever altered the course of the shroud’s history. In 1898, a lawyer named Secondo Pia took the first known photograph of the cloth, and his negative revealed new details—including strikingly clear facial features—that could not be observed with the naked eye. Scientific interest in the relic immediately picked up. In 1902, the French anatomist Yves Delage, an agnostic, inspected the photographs and pronounced that the figure on the shroud was indeed Jesus Christ.

The first direct examinations of the cloth were conducted in the 1970s, most famously by the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP), a team of scientists led by physicist John P. Jackson of the University of Colorado."

The marks on the cloth are said to have been put there by a sort of strange radiation of light and energy that was given off by the body. This should be sufficient proof regarding the historicity of Jesus. And some of the blood on the shroud is from marks that include wounds inflicted by a crown of thorns and nails piercing the hands and feet. 

After thorough examination it appears that the evidence is in. Anyone can say with 95% accuracy that it belongs to the articles with which Jesus Christ was buried and furthermore is proof of his resurrection. But skeptics will be skeptics. 

They contend that Shroud of Turin is just a piece of cloth that has received a lot of publicity and nothing else. All the litany of proofs has no effect on this faithless lot. Seen from almost every angle, the Shroud of Turin supports and bolsters the cause of Christianity

The very pollen dust found on it was only present during the Roman times of Jesus. And the rest of the ten thousand clues point in the direction of the truth of religion

According to ShroudStory, "The Shroud of Turin may be the real burial cloth of Jesus. The carbon dating, once seemingly proving it was a medieval fake, is now widely thought of as suspect and meaningless. Even the famous Atheist Richard Dawkins admits it is controversial. Christopher Ramsey, the director of the Oxford Radiocarbon Laboratory, thinks more testing is needed. So do many other scientists and archeologists. This is because there are significant scientific and non-religious reasons to doubt the validity of the tests."

 

Various people who used to be wary of such a belief in the unseen have become convinced after they saw reality in the form of scientific corroboration of the myths and stories of religion. 

Jesus Christ inspired what is the largest religion in the world today. And the Shroud of Turin is just a sample of the miracles that remain intact after so many years of wars and fires. It gets displayed to millions every few years in Turin, Italy.
