For those who believe the Shroud of Turin is the authentic burial cloth of Jesus, here is some breaking news:
The Custodian of the Shroud at the Vatican has announced today that the Shroud will go on public display in 2015 in Turin, Italy for 45 days between the Easter season starting in mid-April 2015 until August 16, 2015.
The last time the Shroud went on public display was in 2010 and two million pilgrims got to see the most sacred relic in all of Christianity.
My husband and I were among those millions, and it was an experience of a lifetime.
The Shroud of Turin continues to baffle science, for there is no explanation how the image of a crucified man was formed on the cloth separate from the blood stains.
More intriguing, the marks on the crucified man accurately reflect the flogging and crucifixion wounds of Jesus Christ as told in the Bible accounts. Furthermore, the image itself is made from a material that science can not explain.
Here are two articles about the Shroud of Turin that have appeared on PJ Media in the recent past if you are interested in this topic.
The most recent one was from March, 2013:
The first was posted in July of 2012:
OK, I admit it — I am a Shroud groupie, (known as a Shroud-ee.)
And for this breaking Shroud news I must give a big hat-tip to Russ Breault who is one of the world’s foremost experts on the Shroud and runs www.ShroudEncounter.com.
Russ, I might add, contacted me after someone passed along to him my July, 2012 Shroud piece linked to above, that discusses the 3D modeling of the Shroud face.
Russ appeared in and was a consultant on the History Channel documentary, The Real Face of Jesus?
Since 2010, that 3-D modeling presentation has been a huge hit on the History Channel and is replayed every year on numerous occasions.
