      "the napkin which was about his head was in another place" The bible clearly states the burial shroud was in at least 2 pieces.

    YOU BETTER CHECK THE FACTS - you know, the ones found by scientists, not religious zealots.  They have proof that the shroud IS NOT REAL.

      Ask God to save your soul and forgive your sins. He will.You will know he has,. That will be all the proof you will ever need.If you will not do it ask yourself what you are so afraid of.

    Not that I'm an atheist, but the Shroud of Turin is a forgery. Jesus had a separate cloth to cover his face.

      But there also exists what could be the separate cloth for his face - the Sudarium of Oviedo.

      No, it was not from Biblical times ! It is a religious lie.

    It has already been proven to be fake.... several times.

    It has been proven to be not from Biblical times, dating around 1300 a.d. but even if I granted the time frame you desire. You have an image of a person supposedly crucified during a time when many were crucified. Considering the evidence that NT writers provide and the sources they clearly used, Jesus never actually existed, but even if we ignore this evidence, and you get it down to a historical Jesus, it still does not get you to your desired conclusion.

      @Chi girl, thanks for the update, but even the pollen dating doesn't necessarily get you back to the time of the supposed Jesus and like I said before, we would have to ignore the NT writers who do indicate Jesus to be a work of fiction based on their actual sources. The Septuagint in particular.

    Curiously In no scripture in the New Testament is mentioned that Shroud... no one letter or writing of the Apostles mentions that wonderful "miracle"...  

    I won't call you a liar but there is a Bible and verses about the TOMB maybe you do not believe the Bible and got your alternative facts about what was there...

    Biblical

    Luke 24:12   Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulcher; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, 

    ...no full shroud or any image of Jesus mentioned, there are little definite historical records concerning the shroud prior to the 14th century. Although there are numerous reports of Jesus' burial shroud, or an image of his head, of unknown origin, being venerated in various locations before the 14th century, hint various...

    The first certain record (in Lirey, France) in 1390 when Bishop Pierre d'Arcis wrote a memorandum to Pope Clement VII (Avignon Obedience), stating that the shroud was a forgery and that the artist had confessed... hint forgery

    1. Dating on the shrowd i8s probably not old

    2. The bible said Jesus and a special seperate cloth to cover the face

    3, Jesus left no ther physical evidence behind, why would he leave this

    What makes you think that the Shroud of Turin can be traced to Biblical times? It was dated by carbon 14 testing to the 13th century. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiocarbon_dating_o...
