The Shroud of Turin is a subject that many believers dare to tread.
Authors Simon Brown and Caspar McCloud dared, and present the biblical and latest scientific evidence that brings in the absolute proof of the Shroud's extraordinary validity.
The glorious name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is raised, inviting and enticing all souls to be saved. Amen.
John 3:15 - That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
However, it must be noted as in most cases the enemy of our souls will do his best to attack, destroy, and distort the truth, in order to deceive people from the glorious plan of God for their life's.
Keep a lookout for Part two of the "Shroud of Turin Speaks for Itself" as biblical researchers Brown and McCloud continue to expound and inform you with the most up-to-date facts and recent findings. In Part 2 Brown and McCloud also give you the solid biblically based answers you will need that demolishes the arguments of all those "Doubting Thomas" of the world, along with those uninformed ones who speak against the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin.
Brown and McCloud easily dismantle and debunk the arguments of all those who claim the "Shroud", is somehow a work of the devil that will somehow lead people into a false form of Christianity in the great deception that is coming.
We don't need the Shroud of Turin to prove Jesus Christ is the Messiah as we have the Bible and our personal encounters with the Lord. However we also have the evidence of Christ's burial cloth and that jolly well can help you lead your friends and neigbours into salvation.
Part two of the "Shroud of Turin Speaks for Itself" will be helpful for the true believer to rebut all those individuals who so often misquote the Holy Scriptures to you like Deuteronomy 5:8 "Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:" So they erroneously conclude that the image on Shroud can not be of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Messiah Yeshua, not taking into consideration His physical likeness was present on earth at the time and that in fact no man made this supernatural image. Keeping in mind all things are possible with God, and still no one today with all the advances in technology can reproduce a three dimensional image of the body of Jesus Christ of Nazareth encoded onto a two dimensional linen Shroud.
WHO AND WHAT DO WE WORSHIP?
Let us make it clear at the start, as true born again believers we do not worship images or the Shroud of Turin, or bow down to statues for that matter. But we love and worship Jesus Christ of Nazareth, (YESHUA ) who was sent by the Father from heaven and as is written in John 1 who in the beginning was the Word who was with God and who is God, WHO is the same yesterday and today and forever, the Anointed One, Immanuel" the Lamb, He is: The I AM. THE GATE John 10:9 I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE John 6:35 I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD John 10:11: I AM THE TRUE VINE John 15:1: I AM FROM ABOVE John 8:23: I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD John 8:12, THESTREAMS OF LIVING WATER. John 7:38 I AM THE SON OF GOD John 10:36: I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE John 11:25 I AM THE GOD OF YOUR FATHERS Exodus 3:15.
I AM, the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Revelation 22:13 I AM, (YESHUA ) JESUS CHRIST. Acts 9:5: I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE, John 14:6.
WHY DO WE BELIEVE AND SUPPORT THE SHROUD OF TURIN?
Because The Shroud of Turin is like the calling card of the Lord Jesus and we consider it to be a gift from Father God above, We believe it establishes scientific and historical proof of the reliability of the Bible and also perhaps-just for the sceptics' and doubting Thomas's in your life-the supernatural evidence of God's Holy love for humans recorded in the extraordinary image on the Shroud.
We believe it is a good defensive piece of evidence to prove to the atheists, scoffers, sceptics and those misinformed at universities in academia that Father God so loved the would that He indeed sent His only begotten son, that we who were not alive 2000 years ago, can still see the physical evidence today and come to the resurrected Jesus Christ of Nazareth and be saved.
It also seems rather plausible as you study the Shroud of Turin to show yourself approved of the Lord, that the Apostle Paul and the early church congregations may have been aware of the image and mystery of the Lord's burial Shroud. 1 Corinthians 15:51 "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed," May take on new meaning here. You will find this and much more in Part two of the "Shroud of Turin Speaks for Itself"
We read in 1 Timothy 2:1
"I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;"
His Royal Highness Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales.
His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge Prince William.
And The Right Honourable David Cameron MP.
Who have so kindly stressed how grateful they are to have received a copy of The Shroud of Turin Speaks for Itself booklet.
Please pray the Shroud's extraordinary validity will now help them to believe in the reality of the eternal living saviour of the world. The matchless glorious name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Messiah Yeshua, that He has been raised, and so inviting all who believe will deny themselves pick up their crosses to follow after the Lord Jesus and be saved. Amen
Matthew 16:24 "Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me."
Dear friends believe NOT anyone who claims to be Jesus Christ, looking like the person on the Shroud of Turin.
BUT be sure to believe what the Lord Jesus said and stated," For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before."
Matthew 24:24 - 25. KJB.
This is how Jesus will return," For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."
Matthew 24:27. KJB.
"Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."
Matthew 24:29 - 31. KJB.
PLEASE NOTE As we have read above in verse 30 which confirms Jesus Christof Nazareth will appear on the clouds at His Second Coming after the Great Tribulation.
AND when the TRUE Lord Jesus does return it will not be a surprise, no one will doubt or question for EVERY HUMAN WILL KNOW AND SEE THIS IS THE TRUE JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH BECAUSE "HE shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." Matthew 24:31. KJB.
YOU MUST UNDERSTAND AND KNOW THE TRUTH THAT MAKES YOU FREE ( JOHN 8:31-32)NEVER WORSHIP ANYBODY WHO WALKS ON THE EARTH AND CLAIMS TO BE JESUS CHRIST AS THE LORD JESUS WARNED US AHEAD OF TIME THERE WILL BE MANY FALSE . "For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many."
Matthew 24:5 NEVER WORSHIP ANYONE OR ANYTHING EXCEPT JESUS CHRIST.
The TRUE Jesus Christ of Nazareth will not walk or touch the earth UNTIL THE end of the Great Tribulation, which will then be the glorious Millennial Kingdom of God on earth. "And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall split in two, toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall move toward the north, and half of it toward the south." Zechariah 14:4. KJB.
We are Simon Brown and Caspar McCloud.
May God bless you.

One of the functions of the VP8 is Isometric Projection (brightness map) in which white appears to be higher in elevation, black appears lower and mid-range appears between these two extremes.  The VP8 does not create 3D images, but creates brightness maps. It was delivered by Schumacher to Dr. Eric Jumper's basement (with Dr. John Jackson) and, when they processed the image through the VP8, they saw a three-dimensional image in correct proportion for a man's face. Air Force Academy Professors Jackson and Jumper (future founding members of the STURP team) used the VP8 to analyze the Shroud of Turin and used the data from that analysis to create a cardboard model of the Shroud.
The work of Jackson, Jumper and Schumacher indicated that the VP8 algorithms were able to encode the markings on the Shroud of Turin in 3-Dimensional relief. This brightness encoding is like a spatial database. Another interesting aspect of this image is that it resides on the very top 1 or 2 microfibers of the flax linen. The image exists because the cellulose of these top microfibers dehydrated or aged differently from the rest of the cloth. Modern science does not understand the process by which the image on the Shroud was formed and all duplication efforts have failed to duplicate all the peculiar properties of the Shroud of Turin image.
