New Research Show Proof That Jesus Shroud Is Real

SCIENTISTS CONFIRM DATE OF SHROUD OF TURIN

Scientists from the University of Padua in Italy report that new analytical tests performed on the Shroud of Turin, a linen cloth imprinted with the face and body of the man who was buried in it, confirms the date of the cloth to between 280 BC and 220 AD.

These reports monitored on the websites of the Christian Broadcasting Network and The Guardian, indicate there is now new and objective proof that the Shroud of Turin actually does date back to the time of Jesus' death.

Many have claimed that Jesus was buried in this same cloth. However, several other people have sought to dispel these claims as simply medieval forgery.

Going by the results of these recent research tests by Italy's University of Padua conclusively placing the shroud in the era of Jesus' life and death, the debate over the authenticity of the shroud is likely to be reignited.

Giulio Fanti, associate professor of mechanical and thermal measurement at Padua University, led the group of scientists who performed this latest testing on the ancient cloth, which bears the image of a man's face and body.

Unlike Fanti's study which dates the cloth from between 280BC and 220AD, a study in 1988 had determined that the shroud was from between 1260 to 1390.

Daily Telegraph reports that Fanti says that the carbon-14 dating used in the 1988 study was "false” because of laboratory contamination.

News of this new study comes as the Vatican announced it will show the shroud on television for the first time in 40 years, the Guardian reported.

Pope Francis will introduce the 90-minute broadcast of the shroud on 30th March, known as Holy Saturday to Catholics the world over.

"It will be a message of intense spiritual scope, charged with positivity, which will help hope never to be lost," Cesare Nosiglia, the archbishop of Turin, said.

  1. All this talk about a piece of cloth is nonsensical. Jesus is the substance. Whether or not he laid in those actually makes no difference to the story of our salvation.

    1. So sorry I'm replying so very late to your comment. I don't know how it could have slipped through without me seeing it. However, of a truth, your observation is so true. Whether science proves Christ used the piece of truth or not is a bit 'nonsensical' indeed. The real substance is Jesus Christ, the Jewish Messiah and the Savior of the whole world.
