The Shroud of Turin
The Shroud of Turin matches Jesus’s crucifixion injuries in the Bible, and baffles scientists to this day.
No other artifact, artwork, or painting in the world just happens to be encoded with 3D information. Elevation data is encoded in the Shroud, resulting in a 3D image. In computer graphics, this is known as a bump map. With computer software, you can plot the Shroud as a 3D image (as shown). This can not be done with a regular photograph or painting.
Photographic negative image of the Shroud head. No other artifact, artwork, or painting just happens to be a photographic negative. The bloodstains around the head match perfectly the crown of thorns placed on Jesus’ head by the Roman soldiers. “Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and then TWISTED TOGETHER A CROWN OF THORNS AND SET IT ON HIS HEAD. — Matthew 27:27-29
The Shroud image with hands folded across the front of the body. The bloodstain at the wrist matches Roman crucifixion. There are severe flogging marks all over the body. “Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged.” ~ John 19:1
“…one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear…” ~ John 19:34.
“…Jesus came and stood among them…he showed them his hands and side.” ~ ~ John 20:19-20
The coloring that makes up the image on the Shroud is super-thin, too thin in fact to be accurately measured with a microscope. This colored coating is around 200-to-600 nanometers thick and appears ONLY on the outermost fibers of the shroud. No paint, stain, or dye in the world adheres only to the outermost layer of the outermost fiber without absorbing deeper.
The secular “Journal of Optics of the Institute of Physics” reported in 2004 that a 2nd face was discovered on the back of the Shroud. The image is fainter, but matches the 1st face on the other side. Like the image on the 1st side, the image on the 2nd side contains coloring only on the outermost layer of the outermost fiber. The fibers beneath the outermost layer contain zero coloring, meaning that the image on the 2nd side did not result from the image on the 1st side soaking through the Shroud. This is another characteristic of the Shroud without explanation.
“It is simply not known how the ghostly image of a serene, bearded man was made.” ~ Philip Ball, former Senior Editor for Physical Sciences, Nature Journal of Science, in Nature Online (2005)
