If the shroud shows that the knees were not broken then it is the image of Jesus.

I was taught that the final step in crucifying an individual was to break the knees. This would cause the person to suffocate.

Let me know if the knees are broken on the shroud.

I read a book on this subject back in the mid 90's.
Since then there have been more studies on the shroud. The Jury was out then and it still is out and it probably will always be out.

It says in the bible prophesy that Jesus would not
suffer broken bones. I am sure that the prophesy
was true because I believe the bible is true. But how would anyone really know this absolutely for sure--EVER?
You will just need to wait and ask Jesus to show you Himself when you see Him in heaven.
That is when all will truly come to light.

I remember first seeing it on 20/20 as a teenager. I'm catholic so it did give me a sense of "awe". I 'd liuke to believe it's true,but even if isn't no body disputes that is the image of a man that died approx 3000 yrs ago . That's still awde inspiring!!!!

But you are forgetting that Jesus is a fictional character in a Book of fiction called the Bible.

The Shroud of Turin is a scam that started in the 13th century.

There were no mention of it prior to the 14th century.

Forensic tests by carbon dating have proved that the shroud was made of textile not older than the 13th century, making it impossible to be associated with the death of Christ.

I loved the science and forensic angle that this program presented. In a practical sense, it is easy to dismiss this theory. I have recently read a book on the Shroud and the investigative work that has gone into this is mind boggling. I tend to believe that the Shroud is to be believed. Is there still room for the word 'miracle' in our lexicon? In... See More this troubled world we enjoy, could we not have room for good & positive possibilities? I give the nod to hundreds of years of work in considering this issue over a one hour TV presentation.Again,I appreciate the technology that can further studies like this. You cannot beat faith and that's enough for this man...

It was a good production. No doubt HC will repeat it.
Nonetheless, the relevance of the up-to-data analysis of the Shroud depends solely upon the accurate dating of the cloth. As "Robespierre" duly notes above, radiocarbon dating from 1989 says it was from the 13th Century. However, there still is controversy over the exact location of that sample. Was it taken, for example, from a patched area that used 13th Century material?
Let's date more physical samples (if given permission) and then discuss exactly who's face we are seeing.

Why do people put such belief in what the scientist say. Their opinions have changed so many times on this subject. How many archeoligist have determined an artifact or fossil came from a specific era,and then 10,20,30,etc yrs later we find out they were mistaken. Remember "brontosauris" how many years did it take for them to change their mind and it was really a (whatever) and renamed it. What about "pluto" it's no longer a planet??? The shroud is a miracle in my opinion. Just the fact that this was created over 2000 yrs ago . People still believe that the Hebrews built the pyramids. There is no reference in history books that there was even a "great exodus of hebrews from Egypt. The only ref to it is in the Bible. Did that really happen???? I don't know .It's called FAITH!!! JMO

Why allow oneself to fall into the same debate and tensions of doubt that Christ himself, God and the Holy Spirit have been subject of for milenia. Those whom are called to the the Father know Him. The Great Potter has made vast works of art, some to be placed on high, others whom choose to accentuate and indulge upon their defects, be them admired by their folly for this short life on earth.........be at peace, ask the Lord to reveal Himself to you. He will guide you through the remaining questions you may have. Please don't get me wrong...the shroud is amazing.......however, it is only an image of Him. Don't be amazed that the human questions just cease to matter and you find peace once the scales are removed from the eyes.

With all the DNA technology we have today, I find it hard to believe that they can't prove one way or another whether this thing is a fake.

Well, there is, but everything =is contested all the time.

In the end, does it matter?

If some people want to believe in its authenticity, well good luck to them...

Other people think it's a scam and that's OK too...

The problem is, we don't have Jesus's DNA.

I'm quite sure that a 13th century forger would have had the anatomical and scientific knowledge to create the shroud. If you believe that, I'll sell you some underwater real estate in

You believe what you want, and I believe what I want.

After all, the Shroud of Turin isn't a big issue as far as I am concerned, and it runs pretty low in order of importance compared to other problems.

I am not a religious person, so instinctively, I am suspicious of any such claim. It has served me well so far ...

I can agree to that, if you give me the same freedom.
