Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17. KJV.
THE GOSPEL OF JOHN 20. King James Version tells us: The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. 2 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. 3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. 4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. 5 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. 6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, 7 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.

BEST COMMENT SO FAR:
Marie Devine states:
 There are only two authorities, God and the devil. God does all things with evidence from two or three witnesses; the shroud would be another witness to the Bible account. The devil's purpose is to lie, deceive, kill and destroy. The devil would not create the Shroud of Turin with so many evidences in agreement with the crucifixion story that could validate the Bible. The devil turns people away from the Bible, discredits it and says we don't have to follow God's word anymore. The devil would keep it hidden, which it was. Now that the Shroud of Turin comes forward, the devil can only call it a fake and hope that people think that the Bible also is fake. Christ told me to pray as though he were in the room. I asked how I should picture him; he said to consider the Shroud of Turin

Please Note. I Simon Brown do not worship Religious Relics. Do not bow down to Religious Relics.
Do not pray to saints, Mary or any Man. Do not worship or bow down to the Turin Shroud. I pray, confess, repent ONLY to Jesus Christ of Nazareth (YESHUA ) The Shroud of Turn as told in John 19:40. And the Sudarium of Oviedo as told in John 20:7. Is used ONLY to testify AND PROVE the Father God's DIVINE LOVE FOR THE WORLD. The CRUCIFIXION, DEATH, AND RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ who is the Messiah for the millions of Doubting Thomas just as Jesus demonstrated with St Thomas who NEED to SEE to BELIEVE to gain FAITH to be SAVED. I also believe The Holy Spirit is using The Shroud of Turn as told in John 19:40. And the Sudarium of Oviedo as told in John 20:7. TO CALL ALL TO REPENTANCE.

Did Elvis give his life to Jesus and finally repent on his death bed? from reading a book on the Shroud of Turin? Was God almighty trying to reach his soul? by showing Elvis the scientific, supernatural, physical and visible evidence of Jesus on the Shroud.

Elvis specifically requested a Shroud book a few weeks before his death, having heard that the book proved the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin. And when Elvis was found dead in his bathroom the book was clutched to his chest.

According to the British Society for the Turin Shroud, It's now official. Elvis Presley died reading a book about the Shroud of Turin

What does seem clear is the fact of Elvis reading about Jesus burial cloths at his death, in return planted a spiritual good seed, which opened the hearts of some of his fans who were influenced by Elvis who ordered and read the same book to read about the physical and visible evidence of Jesus . A perfect example how God makes good from all situations. Who knows? born again believers may see Elvis sing about Jesus once again.
Elvis Presley once sang a song called Who Am I? Who am I that The King would bleed and die for? Who am I that He would pray not my will, thine Lord? The answer I may never know Why He ever loved me so That to an old rugged cross He'd go For who am I? READ THE FULL ARTICLE HERE

Here is a link to an article by Thibault Heimburger that directly addresses the "duplicate shroud" made by Luigi Garlaschelli (who used my photographs as a basis for his work). Heimburger worked WITH Garlaschelli to evaluate his results, which in the end were very different from the Shroud. Here's a link: Comments About the Recent Experiment of Professor Luigi Garlaschelli. http://www.shroud.com/pdfs/thibault-lg.pdf

Here's a link to a complete bibliography of STURP's published work:  http://www.shroud.com/78papers.htm 

Every claim made by the sceptics has been addressed scientifically.

The blood data evaluation was performed by Dr. Alan Adler, a world renown blood chemist who was far more qualified than McCrone and used chemical and spectral analyses to study the blood samples in addition to microscopy. McCrone simply used his eyes through a microscope on a few tape samples. Here are the references to two papers that document the blood analyses:

Preface
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither
shadow of turning.

James 1:17

As stated above by our brother James (the half brother of Jesus Christ) this scripture conveys the profound truth that God the Father has truly given us the greatest gift from above, His only begotten Son; who not only lived a perfect and sinless life but also paid for all of our sins. He has made it possible for all those who believe on Him and turn away from their sins, follow Him and be covered by His mercy, grace and love, so that they may inherit eternal life with Christ.

Just as I consider The Shroud of Turin to be a gift from God above, I believe it establishes scientific and historical proof of the reliability of the Bible and also perhaps—just for the sceptics’ and doubting Thomas’s—the supernatural evidence of God’s love for humans. This Shroud gives us physical evidence of the

8
death of His only begotten Son, Jesus—by crucifixion—the recorded graphic detail of a supernatural picture of His pain and suffering He endured on the cross.
The image on the shroud reveals the torture of the forty lashes, shows us the scars and pierced body, and the painful puncture wounds from the crown of thorns which pierced His head. It shows us His plucked out beard and records His humiliation by the Romans, who punched and bruised His swollen cheekbones. It shows His pain from carrying His own cross, which can be seen by the damaged knee from falling. It shows His agony from the blood shed of His pierced hands and feet, that bears silent witness to the horror of the cross. It bears the spear wound in His side, and yes, the ultimate triumph of the Resurrection of Jesus (Yeshua) meaning Salvation. All this is recorded supernaturally on The Shroud of Turin.

Could we give up our own child to extreme suffering for somebody else’s evil deeds? The evil deeds of people who are guilty, deeds that some of us would condemn a person for

ever? Could we even sacrifice our only child to die for others who are good, or yet, bad?
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.
Here in John 3:16, told by Jesus—the Creator and the Maker of the Universe—that the highest act, the highest expression, and the highest manner is the depth of love of God the Father towards all humankind since the beginning of the world. This is His unmerited gift to mankind, a gift that no man has earned or deserved.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
This is true love, there cannot be any higher love expressed by the Most High Creator of the world. We were lost in darkness but the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob demonstrates to the human race the greatest deed which no man can truly comprehend. All visible on The Shroud of Turin.

10
Just as Paul writes in 1 Thessalonians 5:21:
Test all things; hold fast that which is good.
The Shroud of Turin is the most tested and analyzed single artefact in the world. It has passed and proved to be good. It has passed and proved to be the actual cloth used by Joseph of Arimathae to cover the body of Jesus Christ.
The research provided in this book is extensive because we wanted to provide the best possible information to help you see the truth. Our goal is to point you to the only begotten Son who is able to save your soul. But, let’s not beat around the bush or hesitate. Let us go straight to some of the many NEW facts and findings about...

The Shroud of Turin.

Chapter One
Evidence of Authenticity

After the radiocarbon dating test in 1988, the results of the Shroud proved it to be a medieval date of 1260-1390. Subsequently, scientists have now proved that the corner from which the radiocarbon sample had been taken was in fact a re-woven, patched, or repaired corner which was newer than the original cloth.
Marino Benford’s and Sue Benford’s brilliant bit of detective work discovered clear indications of a discrete repair to the Shroud.
Ray Rogers was an explosive’s research expert and thermal analyst with the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory for over thirty years before serving on the Department of the Air Force Scientific Advisory Board, where he held the equivalent rank of Lt. General and earned a Distinguished Service Award. Ray Rogers wasn’t just a scientist, he was one of America’s finest. He was also part of the original Shroud of Turin research team in 1978.

Ray Rogers, who was Athiest, originally believed the Shroud was a hoax, converted to believing it was genuine after discovering Madder root dye and gum on the fibers of the Shroud. This is clear evidence of the careful mending of the Shroud that was intended to be imperceptible and of a thread indicating a medieval repair.

Pete Schumacher, and the VP-8 Image Analyzer, discovered a 3D topographical image which showed very clearly the image of a man in three dimensions proving it was not a painting but that the cloth had been wrapped around a real person.

Barrie Schworz4 stated that the wealth of evidence gathered by his team, that the Shroud was not a fake, that it was not a medieval painting, forgery, hoax, photograph, rubbing, etching, or dust painting.
The results of this research has been published in peer reviewed scientific journals including those of Archeological Chemistry:

Organic, Inorganic, and Biochemical Analysis, American Chemical Society, Applied Optics and the Canadian Society of Forensic Sciences Journal.

After testing the blood stains on the Shroud, the tests revealed that they were indeed human bloodstains. The shroud shows the blood stains of the crucifixion near the wrists of the man to be forensically accurate, unlike all medieval and renaissance art which shows the crucifixion holes in the hands which is not correct.

The thumbs of the crucified man on the Shroud are not visible. This would have been caused by median nerve damage as the nails passed through the spaces of Destot, causing the thumbs to turn in.

The vertical flow of the blood stains on the Shroud proved to be in perfect forensic agreement with the blood flow of a crucified man who is positioned vertically on a cross.

Each blood stain on the Shroud shows the image of a lead weight at the end of each whip lash.

Does The Shroud of Turin show any facial
hairs missing?


Barrie Schwartz, official photographer of The Shroud of Turin says, “YES.”

The “Hungarian Prayer Manuscript” known as “The Codex Pray” or “The Pray Codex,” was discovered in 1770. Inside this most prominent document is an old handwritten Hungarian text dating back to 1192 that shows the following five illustrations:

1. Jesus was entirely naked with His arms on His pelvis, identical to The Shroud of Turin.

2. The woven fabric of a cloth showing a herringbone pattern, identical to the weaving pattern of The Shroud of Turin.


15
3. Another illustration shows one piece of  cloth that was identical to The Shroud of Turin.

4. An illustration showing “poker holes”  identical to the “poker holes” on The Shroud of Turin.

5. The Hungarian Prayer Manuscript serves  as evidence for the existence of The Shroud of Turin and its ability to predate the radiocarbon 14 dating of The Shroud of Turin in 1988.

The blood stains on the Shroud clearly correspond to the wounds of a man who has been whipped and scourged before being crucified
Jesus on the cross showing wrists of the man of the shroud.  Read more: http://www.realdiscoveries.org


Experts who have studied the Shroud estimate around 120 scourge marks on the body, front and back, consistent with “40 lashes” from a three thonged whip; “40 lashes” was the correct amount the Romans used.

The Shroud was not created by any artistic means currently known to mankind. All of the research team’s tests indicated that the Shroud was a genuine burial cloth.

16
Directly near the heart, is the darkest blood stain of all, which we call the ‘spear wound’ blood stain, that appears on the shroud.

The ‘spear wound’ on the Shroud is in perfect forensic agreement with John 19:34 that says: But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

The researchers discovered that if the Shroud was a fake, it must have been created by an artist with a comprehensive understanding of the forensics of crucifixion. Something that virtually no other artists of that period have demonstrated.

There are blood stains on the shroud—on the head—as if from a cap, or “crown” of thorns.

The blood stains are the “crown” of thorns on the Shroud which is in perfect forensic agreement with John 19:2 that says: And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head.


17
Everything about The Shroud of Turin, all the blood stains, all the markings, these are all accurate to the gospel account of what was done to Jesus when He was scourged, beaten, crucified and then speared in the side.

When we look at the face on the Shroud, we see the bruised cheek bones, one more swollen than the other, but both noticeably swollen.

The evidence of the bruised cheek bones on the Shroud is in perfect forensic agreement with John 18:22 saying: And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand.

What the Shroud gives us is a forensically accurate description of a crucified man, exactly as the gospel accounts recorded the death of Jesus which is a physical undisputable scientific proof of the crucifixion.


18
Chapter Two
The Garden Tomb and the Shroud are
Linked

The Burial of Jesus

Matthew 27:57-61 57 As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. 58Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. 59Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 60and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away. 61 Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were sitting there opposite the tomb.

Scientists say the Shroud was created by a flash of supernatural light. Italian researchers now believe the burial cloth is authentic, because of the evidence and the kind of technology needed to create a 3D image of Jesus on a single piece of cloth.

19
The Montreal Gazette Announces that scientists say that The Shroud of Turin could not have been faked.

In 2007, I created a documentary called, “Our search for the tomb of Jesus. ” In this documentary I contacted about 10 Shroud scholars who all stated that the person in The Shroud of Turin was about 5 ft. 11 inches tall.

Barrie Schwartz states,
Barrie M Schwortz. Shroud.com.

“The question about the Garden Tomb is an intesting one, first thing I have to admit is that I have not done a true study of the Garden Tomb myself, but understanding that the height of the tomb is 5 ft. 11 inches is certainly coincidental with what I have always perceived that the average height of the man on the shroud is 5 ft. 11 inches.”

Mechthild Flury Lemberg—a Textile expert—discovered clear evidence at Mount Masada, of a surprisingly similar cloth that was found. Made at the same time as the Shroud dating back to the time of Jesus.

Mechthild Flury Lemberg also stressed how the Shroud had been preserved so well. She stated it was unexplainable; similar cloths she has seen—dating around the same time—are almost unrecognizable.

22
Jesus was Wrapped in Two Cloths
Did God preserve the Shroud Himself for such a time as this?

2 Peter 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts.

The gospels clearly identify the burial cloth of Jesus’ body to be one single cloth.
Luke 23:53 And having taken it down, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth.

Please note “A clean linen cloth.”

Matthew 27:59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,

The gospels clearly identify the face cloth of Jesus, also called the napkin, that was around his head, not lying with the linen clothe/SHROUD, but wrapped in a place by itself.

23
John 20:7 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
There were two cloths found in the tomb where Jesus was laid. One is called The Sudarium of Oviedo which is a face cloth. And the other is The Shroud of Turin which is the larger cloth, both were used as Jesus’ burial clothes.

My goal is to help people understand the value of both of these cloths. And I will start by telling you that both The Shroud of Turin and the Sudarium of Oviedo have been tested to have the same blood type, indicating they covered the same body.

It’s important that you have a clear picture of these two cloths so I will share with you as it is described on the Wikipedia on-oline dictionary:

The Sudarium of Oviedo, or Shroud of Oviedo, is a bloodstained cloth, measuring c. 84 x 53 cm, kept in theCámara Santa of the Cathedral of San Salvador, Oviedo, Spain.

24
[1] The Sudarium (Latin for sweat cloth) is claimed to be the cloth wrapped around the head of Jesus Christafter he died, as mentioned in the Gospel of John (20:6-7). The small chapel housing it was built specifically for the cloth by King Alfonso II of Asturias in AD 840; the Arca Santa is an elaborate reliquary chest with a Romanesquemetal frontal for the storage of the Sudarium and other relics. The Sudarium is displayed to the public three times a year: Good Friday, the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross on 14 September, and its octave on 21 September.

Many of the stains on the Sudarium match those on the head portion of the Shroud of Turin. The Shroud had been carbon-dated (1988) to the 14th century. It has been proven by chemical studies that the segment of the cloth used in the 1988 carbon dating is not the same chemically as the rest of the linen Shroud as published in the peer-reviewed renown scientific journal Thermochimica Acta. The claim the sample came from the Middle Ages is disputed by in a book by Joe Nickel, an author who holds degrees in the Humanities but not in Science. Blood tests done on


25
both the Sudarium and the Shroud confirmed that the blood stains on both cloths were of the same type: AB, a common blood type among Middle Eastern people but fairly rare among medieval Europeans. The presence of blood on the Shroud was proven by the STURP scientists and experts who studied the linen cloth and cataloged its data. Some claim there is no evidence that the shroud has the same blood type as the Sudarium, and the blood may be from an unrelated person handling the shroud centuries later.

“The Shroud of Turin or Turin Shroud (Italian: Sindone di Torino, Sacra Sindone) is a linen cloth bearing the image of a man who appears to have suffered physical trauma in a manner consistent with crucifixion. It is kept in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, northern Italy. The image on the shroud is commonly associated with Jesus Christ, His crucifixion and burial. It is much clearer in black-and-white negative than in its natural sepia color. The negative image was first observed in 1898, on the reverse photographic plate of amateur photographer Secondo Pia, who was allowed to photograph it while it was being exhibited in the Turin Cathedral.
The origins of the shroud and its image are the subject of intense debate among scientists, theologians, historians and researchers. Scientific and popular publications have presented diverse arguments for both authenticity and possible methods of forgery. A variety of scientific theories regarding the
Shroud of Turin Speaks for Itself



27
shroud have since been proposed, based on disciplines ranging from chemistry to biology and medical forensics to optical image analysis. The Catholic Church has neither formally endorsed nor rejected the shroud, but in 1958 Pope Pius XII approved of the image in association with the Roman Catholic devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus.
In 1978, a detailed examination was carried out by a team of American scientists called STURP. STURP found no reliable evidence of forgery, and called the question of how the image was formed “a mystery”. In 1988 a radiocarbon dating test was performed on small samples of the shroud. The laboratories at the University of Oxford, the University of Arizona, and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, concurred that the samples they tested dated from the Middle Ages, between 1260 and 1390. In 2008 a former STURP member stated that sample was representative of the whole shroud.
According to former Nature editor Philip Ball, “it’s fair to say that, despite the seemingly definitive tests in 1988, the status



28
of the Shroud of Turin is murkier than ever. Not least, the nature of the image and how it was fixed on the cloth remain deeply puzzling.” The shroud continues to remain one of the most studied and controversial artifacts in human history.”

It seems God always provides further and deeper proof, with extra evidence as a second backup, to prove the reliability of His Word.

Just as God has revealed the split rock in Horeb, as told in Exodus 17:6; proving the true location of Mount Sinai and just as God revealed the Great Stone of Mark 16:4; proving the true tomb of Jesus. God has also revealed the Sudarium of Oviedo which would prove that the burial cloth of Jesus is in fact The Shroud of Turin.

So He has given us The Shroud of Turin to prove the accuracy and the reliability of His Holy Bible.

Even without the evidence of the Shroud,
we know the Bible is true simply because of the lives that are forever changed for the better. Everyday all around the world when

29
people accept Jesus (Yeshua), they are blessed and find true peace. Countless lives are restored and there are countless testimonies of supernatural healings and miracles that continue like those recorded in the book of Acts. God has not changed and His salvation plan includes healings and miracles.

Psalm 103:1-3 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. 2Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: 3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

I am thoroughly convinced, and I hope you are convinced too by the time you finish reading this, that The Shroud of Turin IS genuine. It links the Garden Tomb with the Shroud, supporting only one Doctrine which is Christianity, in the name of The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.

Chapter Three
Passover Resurrection Day Message of
The Shroud of Turin

by Simon Brown

Jesus is alive, and here is the proof! Amen

Romans 14:16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of:

I have written a personal message to you on a most urgent matter. I will not hesitate to stand up for what I believe is good, true and right, and I will attempt to write this in the firm spirit of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Although some believers are not as interested or study as the Bereans did, I am proud to support the belief that The Shroud of Turin is in fact genuine and is the burial cloth of Jesus, as preserved by God.

Believers believe that the Bible is true and is the Word of the living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Yahweh, spoken of by His Son, the Living Word, (Yeshua) and revealed


31
by and through God’s chosen prophets and true disciples—which the gospels clearly talk about—is God.

This teaches us of the two cloths that Joseph of Arimathaea used for the burial of Jesus which existed at that time, and can only be the authentic Shroud Of Turin and the Sudarium of Oviedo, which are still in existence today.

Luke 23:53 And having taken it down, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth.

The Greek word Sudarium of Oviedo is translated into English as “Napkin.”

Sudarium of Oviedo: the napkin that was about His head was wrapped in a place by itself.
John 20:7 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself..

Also found in: Matthew 27:59
And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth.


32
So, from the scriptures we see that the Shroud is a large piece of linen cloth, and the Sudarium of Oviedo is a smaller cloth that was wrapped around the head of Jesus.

The Shroud of Turin and Sudarium of Oviedo was found in the tomb.

John 20:6-7 6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie...

The Shroud should not be worshipped in any way, but is strong evidence to be used to confirm a Christian’s faith in a tangible and physical way. It can also be used to bring others, who require proof, to a knowledge of God’s saving grace.

As Christians, we worship nothing but Jesus Christ of Nazareth (Yeshua) who is the foundation of our faith.


33
I believe the Shroud was genuinely preserved by God because God new that many rebellious hearts would refuse to believe that He sent His only Son to become our Great High Priest and pay the ultimate and perfect sacrifice for us. He knew some would refuse to believe that the “Lamb of God”—Who takes away the sins of the world—would replace the Old Testament animal sacrifices.

John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
It is also evident that most of the world does not believe that Jesus is the Christ (Yeshua) the promised Messiah, as stated in:
2 Corinthians 4:4
The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.


34
Chapter Four
Faith in God

The Bible tells us that without faith in the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus, it is impossible to be saved.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.

The Bible says if there is no resurrection of Jesus, then the preaching is in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:12-14 12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: 14And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

Perhap this is why God preserved and recorded the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus on His burial clothes—The Shroud of


35
Turin. Something that is capable of being perceived by the mind and evidently fresh and visible to the human eye?

During the most important event in history—the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth—the image was frozen in time and recorded on two linen cloths for all humans to see, perceive and understand. And in understanding, whosoever would believe and follow that very person on the cloth, would realize that their sins had been paid for as we find in John 3:16:

For God so loved the world (you), that he gave his only begotten Son (Jesus), that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

If we only believe

It is as if God supplied all the evidence we needed by confirming His Holy Word—the Holy Bible. From the Shroud, God the Father and Creator of the universe has revealed His great love and made it possible for us to know the truth. Who, if they believe, receive, and

36
follow Jesus, are granted eternal life, so that on judgment day, no one can say or ask the question, “Why were we not told?”

Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Believers Who Act Like Atheists
There are things in the world that do not appear fair, and there are those who have been quite unfair regarding the extraordinary physical evidence recorded of Jesus on his burial cloths.

Yet, it is a mystery which I am learning to understand from the Scriptures, asking the question show me LORD in your Holy Word?

 Why are there professing born again spirit-filled Christians, and worse still certain fundamentalist type Christian ministries, who almost act like atheists at times, Why are there believers who seem to condemn

 the only physical evidence outside the Bible of the crucifixion of Jesus?

 Yes, the physical, most vital evidence that can help lost souls find faith in Jesus.

 Are these believers who debunk the Shroud actually suggesting that the devil made the image of the Shroud?

Interestingly enough the Lord showed me 2 Timothy 2:24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; 26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

Because clearly we can see from these Bible verses that the enemy of our souls has taken captive believers in certain areas of their life's. Maybe they have been deeply hurt and wounded and so they entertain a spirit of bitterness and so defile those around them now.

The enemy has programmed them through lies and deceptions coming through vain imagination of unclean spirits in their thought life and in their generations that try to pull them away from the truth of God's Holy Word. We pray the Lord be merciful to those who oppose the truth and themselves for that matter.

 Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: 15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

The Shroud of Turin clearly reveals the physical and visible evidence of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ which is the foundation of the Christian faith. Once we

37
obtain this faith we surrender our whole life to the Lord Jesus Christ by trusting, seeking, repenting and confessing Him as our Lord and Savior which is required to saving our souls.

However, it is most vital and serious that we follow the true Jesus Christ. This then needs proper and reliable research for each and every believer. Wrong research will lead to the wrong faith which will lead to dissolution and destruction.

2 Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them a strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

How is it possible for believers who teach that Jesus was crucified to save humans from their sins yet also teach that the two most important and significant cloths in the history of mankind are not authentic.

They believe The Shroud of Turin and the Sudarium of Oviedo—the physical and visible evidence of the four gospels of the risen Jesus Christ and the world’s most famous relics which do not contradict the Bible, but prove and confirm it, forensically, accurately, sci-

38
entifically and precisely in every detail—are nothing but fakes.

We see most of the world accepting and believing in Darwin’s theory of Evolution which is exactly what it is—A THEORY. Why? Because “The Missing Link” has never been found, and never will be. Evolution is biologically impossible. It is like saying 1+1 = 100000000000000000000000000000000000000.

In other words it’s absolutely impossible.

But Darwinism, like every false teaching and religion, is necessary to help kill, steal and destroy faith and nations; which history has now proven. It is the very foundation laid for Communism to build upon.

The Lord Jesus said in John 10:10: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

It is said that a staggering 95% of the population are not born again. This is no surprise. Evolution is being taught to most children in

39
schools as fact, when it is clearly not. How God’s heart must grieve.  And certain Christians tell me we do not need the evidence of the Shroud.

There appears a sinister agenda in Academia today so that any deep thinkers or professors who challenge the theory of evolution with the idea of Intelligent design will risk losing their tenure.

I suggest you see the film, “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.” Ben Stein examines the issue of academic freedom and decides that there is none at all when it comes to the debate over Intelligent design. For those who pay close attention, Stein’s debate with atheist Richard Dawkins shows that Professor Dawkins has no real answers as to how life began and the best he can come up with, from his well educated mind, is to side with the basic tenants of New Agers’ who believe some aliens from a distant galaxy started life on this planet.

I suggest reading the Bible to find the truth about the Nephilm and extraterrestrials that are, in fact, only fallen angels and demons. Seek the truth for yourself!

40
Matthew 7:7 Seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

God had already known that most of the world would refuse to accept His Son. Could it be the reason the disciples went out of their way to hide and preserve the two cloths containing physical evidence of Jesus for us to see today?

There is now evidence which reveals that the disciples hid the Shroud and Sudarium of Oviedo in caves for safe keeping. Historian C. Bernard Ruffin reveals recent scientific discoveries, including evidence, that the disciples themselves may have kept the cloths hidden. And that Jesus recovered the Shroud from the Tomb, handing it to a follower of St. James.

We are certain the Sudarium of Oviedo was indeed precious and important because it was hidden and preserved with official documents in a great wooden ark.

We see The Shroud of Turin, now believed by atheist and scientists (including NASA) to be impossible to have been created. This position strengthens the belief of some for ex-

41
ample, the Muslims, who say that God has no Son. Yet the Shroud proves the greatest miracle of all, God does have a Son, and His name is Jesus. But sadly the enemy of our souls has blinded the eyes and dulled the ears of certain professing believers who do not understand and so they continue to encourage others not to believe the overwhelming evidence.

Matthew 13:15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Certain believers tell me I am wrong for teaching about the Shroud. I now ask them to talk to God and have a fight with Him for preserving and revealing the evidence of His Son Jesus (Yeshua) on the Shroud.

42
I find it can be very challenging when those who claim to be Christians attack me for simply trying to share the Gospel and prove the existance of Christ.

The fact is, most of the world does not believe the Shroud to be genuine. This gives them another reason not to believe in the person on the cloth, who is the only person who can save them. They have now turned their backs on the Holy Bible and turned their backs on the four Gospels, the most important four books in the whole world. Therefore, they have not found their salvation nor a loving God that has made it possible to know and learn of His Son as the only way to be saved. But instead they have closed their own door to Jesus—who is the door to eternal life.

Chapter Five
Finding the Tomb Of Jesus
 Now discovered The “Great Stone at Mount Nebo” which is the missing link to the true tomb of Jesus.

Mark 16:4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.

The evidence shows the Great Stone only fits the Garden Tomb. 

Based on my research and findings, the Holy Sepulchre is NOT the true tomb of Jesus

45
because the “Great Stone” proves it only fits one tomb in the whole world, “The Garden Tomb.
In my research and discovery, I came across a Christian video showing what they call"The Abu Badd - Rolling stone once used as a fortified door."

I had to go see it for myself! After having visited the tomb, testing and measuring it against this “Rolling Stone,” it matched! The GREAT Missing Stone was found, therefore, locating the true tomb of Jesus. You can watch more on my video documentary.

Acts 13:41 Look, you scoffers, wonder and perish, for I am going to do something in your days that you would never believe, even if someone told you.

Some People Are Misled
So many people are misled and confused and do not know what the true tomb of Jesus is, just as so many are with regards to the Shroud.

47
Let’s address this issue and understand the problem. The finger of blame is pointing in entirely the wrong direction. The question is: “Is the Shroud Genuine?”

Now let’s address the problem properly without condemning the good with the bad. But confirming to seekers that these things are genuine and true and to be used for the good.

As born again believers we are to love all people God created, including our enemies and those of different religions, but hate what they stand for and doctrines that go against the truth, the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Biblical doctrine is important as this doctrine equals truth.

John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

Psalm 119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.

48
Some say, “I don’t need to believe The Shroud of Turin is real.” And I say, “That’s great.” But what about those who don’t know the Lord? Wouldn’t you think that some proof of His existence may help them make a soul-saving decision?” Sadly, for some like my wife and I, even our own parents believe Jesus is a fairy tale.

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.


49
In fact, to help illustrate this point here in Hosea, my wife and I posted around 100 leaflets in our street offering FREE Christian films some time ago. We also did what we could to engage our neighbours and people we meet in friendly conversations to try and simply share the love of Christ's with each of them. To our utter surprise and amazement not one person was really interested in learning about Jesus at this time. So we continue to pray blessings on them and hope that at some point in future they will have a born again experience with the Lord Jesus before its too late. Sadly a few of them actually were quite rude towards us discovering that we were passionate born again Christians. They are still ignoring us now and turning the other way when we pass them in the street. One only needs to think about Saul of Tarsus, abusing the early Christian believers. He later became the  great Apostle Paul in God's perfect timing. There are many Saul types out there, however we need to see their potential as the Lord surely sees them. We are to forgive them as the Lord Jesus forgave us, and simply continue sharing the Gospel.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Hebrews 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits (Angels), sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

Very clearly most of the world would do well to examine the physical evidence of the Shroud and examine the written evidence in the Bible that could lead them to accept the Lord Jesus as their Savior, too. That is why I wrote this book. To get the truth out there to help people make a soul-saving decision. It’s

50
my desire to help people surrender their souls to Jesus, and if one person seeing the evidence of our Risen Savior will help them, then this book has done what it was sent to do.

51
Chapter Six

52
Good and Bad
Does God destroy good people with the bad? No.

We know from the well known stories of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19:24 and Noah’s Ark in Genesis 6:5 that God removed the good first and Joshua 6:25 where Rahab and her family was saved out of the destruction Jericho. But before he destroyed the bad he used the good to glorify His Word. Just as God is going to do in these last days. He will again remove the good and destroy the bad.

Matthew 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

Matthew 3:12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.


53

This is why we need not fear what the world is doing, God is our shield and buckler, and delivers us from destruction. Though we may be on the Titanic, the Lord Jesus is our life boat, and we will be rescued.

Just as all believers should do with the Shroud, use it for good to glorify God and His Word, if perhaps, may help bring a lost soul to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

Sadly

It is very clear that certain fundamentalist Christian ministries have led seekers down the wrong path by their sloppy research on The Shroud of Turin and have failed to understand and reveal the truth.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

54
I tuned into a live Christian television program one day and the teacher was asked, “Is the Shroud genuine?” Eager to hear his response, I was shocked by his response. He said it couldn’t be genuine because there was only one cloth discovered, not two. We see this person, as a leading Christian teacher, clearly did not do his research.

Most don’t understand that there were two cloths discovered which have been proven to have both been used on the same body

On certain Christian web sites it is said that the Shroud is a hoax because the Bible states that Jesus was wrapped in strips of linen, concluding that the Shroud cannot be genuine because it is one cloth and not strips. They are getting confused with the ones that bound Lazarus, or they have seen too many mummy movies. We see here more sloppy conclusions by individuals who have not done their research well and consequently not only believe themselves, but mislead people from believing the truth.

55
It is most shocking and sad for so many who are seeking the truth, to come across these individuals only to be led astray, and in turn, misinform others.
The problem here is bad seeds bare bad fruit. Jesus clearly warns us about this.

Matthew 7:16-20 17 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

It is also vital to some who need further evidence to be informed correctly to strengthen their faith. Evidence of God and the Bible strengthens a believer’s foundations.

The stronger one’s faith is, the greater it will be to carry us through our trials. Every Bible discovery that reveals evidence of God’s Holy

56
Word is like a knock-out-punch on our greatest and most evil enemy—Satan—who is at work to deceive us from the truth and ultimately try and destroy us.

John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:

Good evidence of Jesus, such as the Shroud, can bring many lost souls to Jesus Himself—the Solid Rock and foundation.

If we do our research properly, just as the Apostle Dr. St. Luke did by being a great researcher, affored him the opporutnity to travel with St. Paul. He was privileged to meet people who knew Jesus personally like Mary, the mother of Jesus, St. John and Matthew. St. Luke’s proper research has paid off well for he was able to reveal unique teachings of Christianity only found in his writings, “The Gospel of St. Luke.”

57
Chapter Seven
The Linen Cloth(s)
Just by looking into the Greek translations, we come closer to understanding the truth. In my research, the word that is found in the greek is translated in English to “linen cloths.”

The word: “Cloths” in the Greek = ὀθόνια
English = linen cloths


What does it say about the burial cloths of Jesus?

John 20:6. Then came Simon Peter following him, and went into the
sepulchre, and saw the linen cloths lying.


We find there is not one mention of strips being used but linen cloths, “plural.” Supporting evidence that there is more than one, and that a cloth is a piece of material, not strips. To see this clearly, we need to define what a cloth is:

58
The on-line Dictionary says: A fabric formed by weaving, felting, etc., from wool, hair, silk, flax, cotton, or other fiber, used for garments, upholstery, and many other items.

So it has to be a large piece of material, not strips as some may think. This has to be clear here, because this once again proves that there were “cloths” that were found in the tomb.

And what does St. Luke say speaking of Jesus’ body?

Luke 23:53 And having taken it down, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth.
Please note, “A clean linen cloth.”

Unfortunately, in some of the newer Bible translations we find the word “strips” instead of “cloths.” (New International Version ©1984).

John 20:6 (NIV) Then Simon Peter, who was behind him, arrived and went into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there.

59
Certain believers have used the wrong translations that contain the wrong word “strips” instead of the right words “linen cloths” for their main argument to wrongly debunk The Shroud of Turin.

Personally in the past I have not used the King James Bible exclusively, and have often used the Greek Bible. However I am aware now that there are several versions of Greek Translations that we must also consider. We have our work cut out for us if we want to get to the real truth.

Pastor Caspar McCloud (Pastor of the Upper Room Fellowship in Canton GA has done extensive research of Bible translations) states: “All the modern translations based on the work of Westcott and Hort have done nothing but bring confusion into the church. Let us stay with the reliable Masoretic Text with the septuagint influence, known as The Authorized Version, commonly better known as the King James Version. The Word of God has not changed but it shall change us as we discover the Gospel truth.”

Sudarium of Oviedo and The Shroud of Turin

The Sudarium � 1978 Mark Evans Collection, STERA, Inc. All Rights Reserved  Read more: http://www.realdiscoveries.org/
©1978 Barrie M. Schwortz Collection, STERA, Inc., All Rights Reserve

Both cloths were proved to have covered the same body. Blood tests conducted on the Sudarium of Oviedo and The Shroud of Turin prove that both are of the same blood type—AB—a rare blood type amongst medieval Europeans and mostly common in the Middle East.

It is clear God has shown His love and determination to save the human race He created by proving and strengthening believers and unbelievers the same, by preserving and revealing rock solid evidence of His only begotten Son—outside the Bible—as a 3D negative hologram, on a single piece of cloth!

The rock solid evidence exists; evidence of an event that we, who are yet alive and all those since the time when Jesus was crucified, did not see with our own eyes. But yet we can still see the proof 2000 years later of his time on earth; the scourging, crucifixion, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Christ (Yeshua) the promised Messiah. Evidence preserved so that

Shroud of turin �1978 Barrie M. Schwortz Collection, STERA, Inc., All Rights Reserved  Read more: http://www.realdiscoveries.org/

61
future generations may study it and come to believe and be saved.

Again, there are many, including believers, that have done their best to condemn the only physical, visible evidence that shows Jesus lived, was crucified and resurrected. However we also have evidence from a number of secular writers of that time period who wrote about Jesus of Nazareth such as Flavius Josephus (born 34 AD).

Flavius was a Jewish historian who became a Pharisee at the age of 19 and later Commander of the Jewish forces in Galilee. He was captured by the Romans and ended up writing an historical account of his time period.

Flavius Josephus born 34 AD.



And I quote:

“Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man if it be lawful to call him a man, for he was a doer of wonderful works, a teacher of such men as receive the truth with pleasure. He drew over to him both many Jews, and many of the Gentiles. He was the Christ, and when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal

62
men among us, had condemned Him to the cross, those that loved Him at the first, did not forsake Him; for he appeared to them alive again the third day; as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning Him. And the tribe of Christians so named from him are not extinct at this day.”

In my many emails I have received, here is one from an atheist. He wrote saying, “Hey guys guess what, god isn’t real. Show me one piece of evidence one piece, that god is real.”

And here is another one from another individual saying, “What a crock of B.S., the Bible was written by humans and rewritten numerous times.”

We can see by this first person’s request he is asking for one piece of evidence of God. But because there is doubt that the Shroud is real, he may struggle and not come to the knowledge of the truth, thereby condemning Him to hell.

63
In a book called, “Flight to Heaven” there is a quote I read that says: “Knowledge is flawed, but truth prevails.” This is very accurate according to the Bible.

2 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Knowledge is plentiful today, but the knowledge that many are getting is not the truth. 1 Corinthians 8:1 says that knowledge puffs us up, in other words, filled with pride, instead of being filled with love.

1 Corinthians 8:1 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.

It seems clear to me why God has given us the Shroud, to use it as rock solid evidence to prove the Bible was inspired by God. By teaching the authenticity of the Shroud, we can show these guys the evidence they are looking for. And I say, “Now turn from your sins and believe.”

64
It is puzzling how one can believe in Jesus Christ of Nazareth and yet teach people that the only piece of evidence that we have of Him and can be physically seen—outside the Bible—is a lying deceiving fake.

Like I said earlier, many choose not to believe anything that the Catholic Church was involved with, and discredits everything they offer, including the existence of the Shroud. The Catholic Church has had possession of the shroud since 1985.

If this is the case, we have to then question the previous 1985 years when the Roman Catholics did not own the Shroud. Did these Doubting Thomas’ believe the Shroud was genuine then?

It seems to be fundamentalist ministries who use scientific archeological evidence to prove the Bible, yet they teach the most important and greatest archeological evidence is a hoax.

As Barrie once stated. People accept the one piece of evidence against the Shroud. But throw out the 99% of the evidence for the Shroud.


65
The Shroud played a part in the most important time in history. Are we that mad to believe that this cloth, that was closer to the body of Jesus than anything else for three whole days, would have been lost or forgotten?

When a family member dies, most of us keep some of their closest items. In my case when my mother passed away I took possession of her portable phone book.

The very fact that no human being could create the Shroud can only mean one thing, that God must have made this 3D cloth of Jesus himself. This then raises an important question, if God made it, why would He then want us to teach and tell seekers it is a forgery? Does our GREAT God do things by mistake? No! It is clear that it is God’s desire for the world to be reminded of His love for the world.

Chapter eight
What is the Point of the Shroud?

As Dr. LA Marzull once told me: “The Shroud is God’s calling card.”

L.A. MARZULLI. Author,Researcher,Lecturer.



Carole Bevan-Iryby stated, “The Shroud is God’s love letter on a cloth.”


once told me: “Ask the sceptics this question. Who can create a photo-negative 3D image on a single cloth even with today’s technology?”

Many have tried with ridiculous results said Barrie M. Schwortz.

Dr. Richard Kent continues to say: “The Shroud of Turin Actually Proves The Resurrection Of Jesus Christ. The Image on the Shroud can be explained by the Bible, and an application of known laws of Theoretical Physics, and is a scorch in photo-negative, caused by radiation, with the appearance of an X-ray, but with additional distance imaging properties.”

68
Chuck Missler of Koinonia House Inc. states: “Dame Piczek, a Hungarian trained particle physicist and internationally renowned monumental artist, has apparently uncovered hard, scientific evidence of the Shroud. She contends that the image was created in an infinitesimally small fraction of a second and its formation was absent of the effects of gravity. Dame explains the complicated physics behind the image on the Shroud saying: As quantum time collapses to absolute zero [time stopped moving] in the tomb of Christ, the two event horizons, one stopping events from above and the other stopping the events from below at the moment of the zero time collapse going through the body, get infinitely close to each other and eliminate each other, causing the image to print itself on the two sides of the Shroud.”

Quantum Hologram of Christs Resurrection by Chuck Missler of Koinonia House Inc.


When expert photographer Barrie M. Schwortz first saw the Shroud, he was expecting to walk away laughing after seeing clear evidence of a painting. However it shocked and proved him wrong, realizing that it was a 3D image, and not a painting on the cloth. After years of dedicated research he discovered the

69
Shroud could not have possibly been created by the hands of a man, which would then change his whole life and come to establish him as the greatest expert on the burial cloth of Jesus.

Barrie said his Mum once told him, “Of course the Shroud is authentic, if it belonged to any one else, no one would have cared or would have kept it.”

And Barrie’s son once told him, ”You can see the Shroud is not a painting, because you can only see the image of Jesus at a distance, but not close up to it. How can one paint a painting, if one cannot see what they are painting?” Out of the mouth of babes...

Barrie also stated to me that his Jewish friends had more faith that it was Jesus on the cloth than many Christians.
In a recent interview with Barrie, he made the statement to Emma and myself, “When you look at the Shroud, how could we not love Jesus?” I say Amen and Amen.


70
Pastor Caspar McCloud says: “The Lord used the Shroud to help convert me in the late 1970’s and I dare say probably many more people over the years who realized that Jesus was real. Why are there so many intelligent scholarly types who also believe this is in fact the genuine article the Bible speaks of? Are we to say that suddenly now God is not able to do the impossible and leave us the imprint of the Glorious Resurrection of our Lord Jesus?

Luke 1:37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.

Let us learn to simplify our message to an unsaved world. The message in the Holy Bible is not complicated: Come to Christ. In fact, we the body of Christ as the priesthood of believers, are the body of Christ. So let us take the Gospel message everywhere we go, with signs and wonders, cloths and aprons, for example, just as His followers did in the book of Acts,

Yes, wonders, healing and miracles will follow us as we follow after the Lord Jesus (Yeshua). To God be all the glory.


71
Because of the Shroud many were converted to Christ before the Catholic’s acquired it. The evidence is that the people who believe the Shroud is the actual burial cloth of Jesus of Nazareth have not joined the Catholic church! The Shroud is a good way of promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and it is time all believers did the same thing and stop attacking the body of Christ. When we attack other believers that is like an autoimmune disease.”

Dr. Peter Soons, a 3D Imaging expert states: “The Shroud of Turin is one huge message. A gift of God to the world. The Science of the Shroud Proves That Jesus Christ Existed, was Crucified and Resurrected exactly as written down 2000 years ago.”

Frederick T. Zugibe (M.S., M.D., Ph.D., FCAP, FACC, FAAFS) studied the Shroud and

72
crucifixion for over 50 years and was responsible for many ground breaking results in his research. Among them he was:

1. First to determine that the cause of death in crucifixion was due to hypovolemic and traumatic shock and not due to asphyxiation.

2. First to show that the straightening and sagging theory on the cross is physically impossible.

3. First to show that the so called bifurcation  image pattern was not due to a change in angle of the wrists and not due to straightening and sagging.

4. First to show that the nails pierced the up per part of the palms of the hands and not through the wrists.

5. First to measure the exact pull on the hands during crucifixion when the feet are secured, utilizing highly sophisticated, state of the art, strain-tension equipment and to show that the tension formula (two times the cosine of the angle of the arms with the upright of the cross) that had been

73
universally accepted is not applicable to crucifixion when the feet are secured to the upright of the cross.
First to refute and prove incorrect, the widely held hypothesis that injury to the median nerve was the reason that the thumbs do not show on the Shroud and also to demonstrate why this was so.


Mechthild Flury-Lemberg discovery

Mechthild Flury-Lemberg, as I mentioned earlier is a Swiss textile restorer and expert who studied weaving at an academy in Hamburg, Germany and earned degrees in the history of Art from universities in Kiel and Munich, agreed in 2002 to head the restoration and conservation of the linen Shroud. She discovered clear evidence that the Shroud was the work of a professional and is surprisingly similar to the hem of a cloth found in the tombs of the Jewish fortress of Masada.
The Masada cloth dates between 40 B.C. and 73 A.D.

She also discovered The Shroud of Turin was of an extraordinary quality and could only

74
be purchased by a rich man like Joseph of Arimathaea—precisely what we are told happened in the Gospels.

Look at the 120 scourge marks on the body—front and back—consistent with “40 lashes” and the crucified holes in his feet and wrist’s. What do you see? We see how much God loved us.

This is the back of The Shroud of Turin where I added the blood stains consistent with the 40 lashes, and around 120 scourge marks on the front and back of the body by a three-thonged whip. Experts who have studied the Shroud agree. (See more on my film called, “The Evidence and The True Face of The Shroud.”)

This is the back of The Shroud of Turin where I added the blood stains consistent with the 40 lashes, and around 120 scourge marks on the front and back of the body by a three-thonged whip. Experts who have studied the Shroud agree. (See more on my film called, “The Evidence and The True Face of The Shroud.”)


I am quite sure of my calling and work on the Shroud and therefore feel committed to see it through, believing it is the greatest and most powerful tool that proves and confirms God’s son Jesus Christ and His Holy Word written down in the scriptures. I do not believe there is a greater tool for demolishing, smashing and tearing down the barriers erected against the truth of Jesus Christ.

If only the unbelieving believers would use the Shroud to prove the reliability of the Bible and the physical evidence of the life of Jesus; His agony and blood shed; His pierced hands and feet; His cross and passion; His crucifixion death and burial; and His Resurrection—instead of trying to prove to the world that the



75
earth is only 6000 years old.

It seems like the unbelieving believers who condemn the Shroud got on the wrong boat and are missing the point. Believers would bring far more lost souls to Jesus by showing the world the physical evidence of Jesus, rather than arguing with the world that it was created in seven days, 6000 years ago. By believing this, it does not save souls, but by taking people to the cross of Jesus and believing and following Jesus down the right path does save soul.

It is wrong for ministries to interfere with other ministries rightful work when defending the truth of our Lord Jesus. However, it doesn’t matter how much I have been attacked and hated for believing in the Shroud, I will remember the last words of Jesus on the cross when He said: “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

If you are one of these, I forgive you and love you.

Please, let us pray that the eyes open for those doubting Thomas’ who are grieving God’s heart. The cloths was left behind to

76
show us His love for the world.

And we will make good from it instead, by shouting from the roof tops that The Shroud of Turin proves by the scourging marks of crucifixion impregnated on the cloths, the resurrected Jesus Christ (Yeshua), the promised Messiah.

It proves the Holy Bible to be forensically accurate and perfectly reliable in every possible way and in every detail truthful concerning the most important event in human history—the crucifixion of Jesus, the greatest miracle in the world, the Resurrection of Yeshua.

If you are looking for the evidence of Jesus, here it is. It is time to turn away from our sins, believe and receive salvation, and follow Jesus. Amen.

Chapter Nine
Pastor Caspar McCloud
Message of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ
of Nazareth

http://www.theupperroomfellowship.org/

Pastor Caspar McCloud’s research will help bring understanding about Jesus’ life and the power of His resurrection. I felt it important because without the resurrection, everything we do is in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

After the most significant and amazing resurrection of all history when Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Messiah (Yeshua) came back to life, He brought many of the Old Testament Saints back with Him.

78
Matthew 27:52-53 52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, 53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

These resurrected saints must have had real bodies. There are actually several ancient documents that confirm this. For example: Simon, the temple priest who had waited to see the baby Jesus before he died, had two sons who lived in Arimathea. The records state that the Sanhedrin specifically investigated any resurrections, as they were common in that day.

It is stated in the records from the Ante-Nicene Library that both sons of Simon were interrogated separately and at the same time, and both had given the same kind of explanation. They both claimed that Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Messiah (Yeshua), had appeared to them in Hades where He preached a message to everyone who had died and was there. I can make an educated guess what He preached, as Jesus took that repentant thief with Him and shared about the New Covenant. He also

79
probably taught from the Holy Scriptures how those Old Testament saints would accompany Him back to Heaven and all those who refused to obey the Voice of God and the Lord’s prophets must remain there until the judgment.

The records from the accounts stored in the Ante-Nicene Library state that the Lord Jesus then took these two brothers—along with all those Old Testament Saints who believed the Lord—and were given new resurrected bodies as Christ Who resurrected out of that Tomb. The Bible clearly tells us that many came out of the graves and went into Jerusalem at this time. It also says Jesus appeared to many of His followers as we just saw in Matthew 27:52-53.

According to the writings of Jewish historian Flavius Josephus and Roman records during this Passover, one sheep would serve as a sacrifice for only 5 people. There were at least another 100,000 people who had entered the city of already 250,000 people who lived there. You can just imagine how much sacrificial lamb’s blood was spilled that day.


But it’s only by the blood of God’s lamb, Jesus, that we have Salvation. God chose to connect Jesus (Yeshua), with Passover in His perfect timing that we might understand. Is it any wonder that John the Baptist introduces Jesus by saying, “Behold the Lamb!” It’s no wonder Paul writes “Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been slain!” Because Passover is all about Jesus (Yeshua)!

Jesus came as the LAMB of God!•
His Blood redeems US!•
By His Blood… He covers our confessed • sins.
By His Blood…the power of the enemy • is broken!
By His Blood…we are released from • bondage and oppression and all sickness and diseases.
By His Blood…we are made free to enter • into Papa God’s Promise!


Pastor Caspar closes his message by saying, “Passover is about the Celebration of our Lord Jesus, and The Shroud of Turin is a wonder-

81
ful piece of physical evidence of His suffering and mission.”
Caspar with a Shroud of Turin copy.


Conclusion
The whole purpose of this study and discovery is to help bring people to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Some need evidence, others do not. I hope that the evidence shown in this book helps you make a decision for the Lord.

When we “believe” that Jesus Christ truly died on the cross for our sins and if we believe that Jesus rose from the dead, and follow Him by taking up our cross, you shall be saved.

1 Thessalonians 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

Some need physical proof... well here it is. Some simply believe. The Bible says, “Blessed are those who have not seen, yet

82
hath believed.” Whether you believe what I’ve shared in this book or not, and you have not yet received this free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord, now is the day. Let today be the day of your salvation!

 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:9  King James Version KJV

83
Prayer For Salvation
God Promises if you put your trust in Him and believe in His son Jesus Christ, the time will come when He will wipe away every tear from your eyes. And there will be no more pain or suffering ever again. God will pour out His love for you, forever. Do you want to be a part of God’s family? Then surrender your heart to God.

Say this prayer with me, and this prayer will change your life. This prayer will change your destination to come. And this prayer will be the most important event in your life. The most important words you have ever said repeat the following out loud, (The reason we pray out loud is Romans 10:9 says to make your confession with your mouth):
“Dear God the Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have hurt you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward

84
You. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send me your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”

Now seek God with all your heart, otherwise just saying this prayer will not accomplish anything on its own.

85
My Prayer for You
“Lord, because of your people’s prayers right now, and as one of your representatives, I take the authority you have given me and I break every curse that has been hindering this person who had sincerely prayed this. I revoke any curses now and I release them from each one in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. In His all prevailing name I declare these people released.

Satan, I declare to you this day, that you have no more claims, no more access to their lives, to their families and their business. They have been lifted out of the domain of darkness and translated into the Kingdom of the Son of God’s almighty love.

Father in Heaven, I ask you to fill them with your perfect peace, Your love and Your compassion, so they can in turn love You, love themselves and love others. Help them to forgive every person in their life that has ever hurt them or offended them. By putting their trust in You, they will be freed from all sin and given the power to live this life with joy. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”

86
Now go and tell what God has done for you! Your testimony needs to be shared, and we would love to hear it ourselves. Revelations 12:11 says that the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony can defeat the enemy.

If you received Jesus Christ as your personal Savior today, start your new life by picking up the Instructional Guide Book to the supernatural—the Holy Bible—as your personal God inspired Bill of Rights and give it first place in your life.
Supernatural peace in your life will increase as you increase in the knowledge of God’s Will and His Word. (Proverbs 4:4-13, 20-22).

87

Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.
John 14:6

About the Author
Simon Brown, a born again believer and the author of the Real Discoveries web sites.org .com. and .info., has produced four feature documentaries which are aired on Sky TV. He is mostly known for his first film, “Our search for Sodom and Gomorrah” which is probably the most watched film on you tube in its category.

He believes God has also led him to some important archeological discoveries. His main discovery was in 2011 when he believed God revealed to him the Great Stone as told in Mark 16:4 which proved to be the missing link to the true tomb of Jesus.

Simon produced his second film “Our search for the tomb of Jesus,” revealing a great deal of evidence in support of the Garden tomb. His find on the great stone at Mount Nebo proved his previous research on the tomb of Jesus to be accurate and reliable.

His third film is called, “Our Search for Real Discoveries Around the Dead Sea.” Simon then produced his forth film” The Evidence

89
and The True Face of The Shroud” aired on Sky TV.

Simon and his wife Emma have a passion to prove that the Bible is true reliable and accurate.

Simon has a desire to share what knowledge and understanding he has been granted. Through his websites and the information offered, he hopes to open the eyes of those who do not fully realize the importance of the Bible and its teachings.

Emma, his wife, plays a large part in all this by working with Simon.
Recently many discoveries have been made, especially in the Holy Land which support the Bible’s account of history.
That is precisely what “Real Discoveries” is all about.

The Shroud of Turin Speaks for Itself [Paperback] Climbs to  NO 1 - out of 1,047 Results on amazon.com

We thank our dear Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ of Nazareth for blessing this little booklet.

 

 

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 matterBut 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;"

 

Please join your prayers with us as all things are possible with God. We pray for continual blessings and salvation, that hearts are converted in Jesus Christ of Nazareth's name for
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 Christ 
of 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.

May God bless you.

I presume because you are taking the time to read this you too are hungry to discover more. I like to receive feedback from you as I am open minded and willing to listen to what people have to say Please leave your comments.

 UPDATE FRIDAY 25 October 2013. By Simon Brown. I often receive comments from Christians who are confused, and have their doubts regarding the Shroud of Turin's authenticity.

Here is an interesting one.
The shroud with the true image of Christ can be used to "prove' the antichrist to be the Christ. Here is what I believe. if Satan is planning to use the blood of Jesus from the Shroud to try and ultimately deceive the world, than he must believe the Shroud is genuine, otherwise why would he use it? Also we have to remember, Satan will do, and use what ever he can to deceive the world.
He has been twisting the truth all his life, so he may try to use the Shroud to twist and fool more people. For example, he is already using ALIEN ABDUCTIONS to make people believe there is no God, and the aliens who are probably demons created humans and the world. More people now believe in aliens then in God. I truly believe this is the great last days deception.
However the main point is, who will Satan deceive? only the people who do not know Jesus, who are already being deceived, because they do not believe on Him, Satan has the power to blind unbelievers from the truth. All TRUE born again believers will not be deceived if Satan uses the Shroud to make people believe he is back and is Jesus. WHY? Because TRUE born again believers already know 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.
Also why, or how? would Satan benefit from trying to make people believe he or the antichrist is the same person on the Shroud? to deceive people into believing he is Jesus. Because most still do not believe the Shroud to be genuine.
And if most do not believe in Jesus Christ now, why and how would they be convinced the antichrist to be the Christ
by the Shroud at the end?
I believe it is very, very sad of believers, who condemn the Shroud, and give the glory TO Satan, for creating the ''PHYSICAL'' evidence of the life crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus. By doing so they have attributed Gods power to Satan rather than to God.



UPDATE 18/11/2013
The video below is the research by Dr. Nitowsky. As far as I am aware there was soil taken from the Damascus Gate opposite the Garden Tomb. And archaeologist tested the same type of soil found on the Shroud to be identical. However no one has ever taken soil directly from the grave area where Jesus is believed to have been laid, and have tested it with the same type of soil found on the Shroud of Turin. MY INTENTION I am going to take my samples of the soil from the garden tomb to a group of Scientists in Birmingham. Thanks to David Roberts and The Holy Shroud Guild.WEBSITE.
Who has brought to my attention the research by archaeologist of the soil on the Shroud.

He believes a Spectral analysis would likely be the best thing to do with my samples. They have the equipment. He said It looked impressive in the Advanced Mass Spectrometry Facility University. A report said, an analysis conducted by Dr. Riccardo Levi-Setti through his high-resolution Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy that provided the true "little DNA" or “finger print” to be compared with the samples of the Shroud (fibers) That is another test that should be done. 1. A High Resolution Ion Mass Spectroscopy. 2. X Ray Diffraction Test In doing that with the sample I have, I should be able to match it up. The people that ran these tests on the soil on the Shroud Immaculate work. David believes this is the Hercules Aero Space Lab in Salt Lake City Utah. The 1st Thing to look for in soil sample from Garden Tomb is the presence of aragonite It is very important that the aragonite is in your sample I image That would be the 1st thing they would look for. 1. Aragonite in the sample, not just common calcite/limestone 2. Specific levels of iron and strontium 3. Absence of lead Methods to accomplish this: 1. The strongest way to distinguish Aragonite from Calcite is the X-ray diffraction to determine the crystalline structure. 2. High-resolution Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy would be used to determine the specific levels of strontium and iron. I believe these would be the tests that would be done. Bear in mind when looking at the image I sent, this is the comparison of The Shroud fibre and the tomb in Jerusalem where they got the closest match. 9 different areas were tested, this is the closest they got so far. What we are hoping for is a closer match. The Cave-Tombs were carved out of sides of limestone hills. The presence of Calcium Carbonate (limestone dust) on the Cloth was noted by Dr. EUGENIA NITOWSKI (Utah archaeologist) in her studies of the cave tombs of Jerusalem. Optical Engineer Sam Pellicori noted in 1978 the presence of dirt particles on the nose as well as on the left knee and heel. This is a rare calcite that can only be found in the soil outside the Damascus Gate. It is called Travertine argonite. Prof. Giovanni Riggi noted burial mites. Dr. Garza-Valdes discovered oak tubules (microscopic splinters) in the blood of the occipital area (back of the head) as well as natron salts. Traces of aloe and myrrh have also been identified on the Cloth. These are consistent with Jewish burial customs of antiquity I am also going to have a better test on my samples of The GREAT Stone with my samples of the outside of the garden tomb, to see if I can get a better match.

VP8 Image Analyzer

The VP8 Image Analyzer[1][2][3] is an analog computer produced by Pete Schumacher of Interpretations Systems Incorporated (ISI) in 1972.[4][5][6][7] An analog computer is a device which " . . . uses the continuously changeable aspects of physical phenomena such as electrical, mechanical, or hydraulic quantities to model the problem being solved.[8] See data sheets produced in the 1970s (estimated by Pete Schumacher to be 1974-1975) digitally scanned and OCRd April 2014 on the VP8[9] & the CVC-1 Camera.[10]

One of the functions of the VP8 is Isometric Projection (brightness map)[11] in which white appears to be higher in elevation, black appears lower and mid-range appears between these two extremes.[12][13][14] [15][16][17][18][19][20] The VP8 does not create 3D images, but creates brightness maps.[21] 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.[22] 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.[23]

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.[24] 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.[25][26][27]

Note: The information for this article comes from Pete Schumacher, the Production Engineer of the VP8 Image Analyzer and written mostly by Andy Weiss, webmaster of iSEAM, http://ShroudNM.com, since working with Pete over the past 5 years.

Doubting Thomas and The Shroud of Turin. By Simon Brown.
Doubting Thomas and The Shroud of Turin. 
Hello friends. I do hope your well. I am sorry for not posting an article last week, as I am still receiving 100's of comments every day from atheists who sadden my heart from the terrible misunderstanding they have of Jesus and the Bible.

I understand why unbelievers are spiritually blind.
But it is puzzling when I receive so many comments from Christians who say I am deceiving people because I use the Shroud of Turin in hope and to help the lost see the visible and physical evidence of Jesus.

I received this email just yesterday from a Christian saying:

PPS. Looking back at some of your old comments, it's obvious why I had already dismissed you as, "a deceiver who is himself totally deceived."  Farewell Simon.  JESUS CHRIST IS THE LORD GOD AND KING. "Even so come quickly Lord Jesus." (And deliver us from this vile piece of cloth.)

He is sill on this video below arguing with Christians.
Jesus and the Shroud of Turin [BEST FILM ON SHROUD EVER PRODUCED] The Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Jesus and the Shroud of Turin [BEST FILM ON SHROUD EVER PRODUCED] The Resurrection of Jesus Christ

Only weeks before this comment I kept receiving emails from another lady Christian who said Satan was using me to promote the Shroud of Turin. So when the Devil comes back he will make out to the world he is Jesus Christ on the Shroud.
I found her theory that I have heard before very hard to believe, because most of the would still refuse to believe the Shroud is genuine. So if this was Satan's plan? it has already failed. 

And if Satan was to use the Shroud to deceive the world, than he must believe it is genuine.
It also 
does not change the fact that the Shroud is not genuine.

I am very sure Satan will be doing what ever he can in these last days to further deceive the human race.
However what these scoffing Christians are forgetting is the fact that the true born again will not be deceived if they study their Bible and have the Holy Spirit in them.
In the end she sent me so many emails calling me names, I had to block her.

Friends if I had realised we would be attacked so much by Christians as well as 100's of atheists just for standing up and speaking out the truth, then I would of asked God to please give me a different job like sweeping the church floors.

I am astounded to be often condemned by Christians for simply testifying to a lost world the forensic facts and evidence of the horror of Jesus going to the cross. The Shroud bears the ultimate triumph of the Resurrection of Jesus (Yeshua) meaning Salvation. All this is recorded supernaturally on The Shroud of Turin, which proves the Holy Bible to be forensically accurate and perfectly reliable in every possible way.
Shroud of Turin. Turin Shroud.
Shroud of Turin. Turin Shroud
                           ©1978 Barrie M. Schwortz Collection, STERA, Inc., All Rights Reserved


I always find the Christians who condemn the Shroud of Turin never come up with any ''correct, valid, well founded, sound FACTS'' or evidence to prove the Shroud of Turin is not authentic. 
They often send me Bible verses like: Exodus, Deuteronomy and Leviticus 26, Where God states-" Ye shall make you no idols nor graven images". So why would God break his own laws? They tell me. 
Yet these Christians have not got a clue of what the meaning of the word ''images" means. Which means making idols with our hands. Which was why God gave these commands, because His people were making idols and images out of clay and then worshipping them as if they was a god.

I even received up to 5 emails from a Christian who was grieved because my articles had a photo of Jesus. She said I am breaking Gods laws by using ''images" of Jesus above. Yet she purchases DVD films with the ''images" of Jesus on them and watches Jesus films, with people portraying Jesus who is above. 

Theses Christians who condemn the Shroud often tell me God would not break His own commands by making ''images" for people to bow down and worship. Yet Theses clever dick Christians fail to understand that NO TRUE born again Christian bows down and worships anything. Except Jesus Christ Himself.

We simply use the Shroud as an important witnessing tool. Because most of the human race believe the story of Jesus is a fairytale.

Theses Christians who condemn the Shroud seem to be the same as most atheists who just refuse to believe the Shroud is authentic no matter how good or convincing the evidence is.

I often wonder what side they are on. When it comes to proving to the lost it is Jesus on the Shroud of Turin they seem to jump on the atheists side and teach the many people like Doubting Thomas's The Shroud is a forgery.

Yet they believe Jesus was crucified and His burial cloths were lost or destroyed. The very fact the 2 cloths have survived for 2000 years can only prove one thing. God preserved them for today as a witnessing tool. Yet when I use the Shroud to witness, I am condemned and called a deceiver who is deceiving others.

Peter Shumacher, the inventor of the NASA VP-8 Image Analyzer, describes the discovery of the 3 D image of Jesus Christ on the Shroud of Turin. He states: 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. READ FULL ARTICLE.

The Good news.
I find it interesting, while there are times we are saddened, there seems to be a good surprise that pops out of the sadness. Please may I explain. When people of your own faith attack you, it does make you think, could I be wrong and they be right? And as we pray and ask Jesus for help, knowledge and further understanding, He seems to answer.

The Christian who sent me the article above also stated in his comment: 
By virtue of their substance and form, physical objects require no faith whatsoever. They can be observed, examined, touched and even smelled. -- This is the very opposite of "faith."
Thomas was not commended or blessed because he had "seen" Jesus after the resurrection; but those who believe WITHOUT SEEING ARE!
(John 20:29)

As I read this part of his comment, my brain clicked. Did God flick a switch in my brain? Lets go back 2000 years to the chapter of John 20:24 when Thomas said: 
Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

How interesting. Here we have a disciple of Jesus who followed Jesus, saw Jesus change water into wine, fed the 5000 with just a 5 loaves and 2 fish.
he watched Jesus raise the dead, heal the blind and crippled calmed the storm, cast out demons and heard Jesus tell hidden secrets in his parables only he could know and many many more great miracles that each of us would desire to see just one miracle.

Yet Thomas did not have any faith in the most important time in world history. Where Jesus was to become the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, by His ultimate triumph and the Resurrection. Jesus made it clear, this was why He came into the world to be crucified and be raised from the dead in 3 days.

The greatest day ever, that changed the world for ever in the whole of human history had come. The greatest day that the prophets so longed to see was for filled and Yet St Thomas became The famous Doubting Thomas who could not believe and had to see Jesus to believe.
St Thomas needed to see and touch the very holes from the nails in the hands of Jesus.
But that still wasn't enough for St Thomas to believe. He also made it clear. He demanded to see the spear wound of Jesus as well to believe.

After eight days Jesus returned and said to St Thomas: Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. John 20:27.

So there we have it friends. St Thomas clearly needed to see to believe. And Jesus did not condemn St Thomas for wanting to SEE to believe.

I have read many Christian articles who believe and teach the Shroud is a fake and say we do not need the Shroud of Turin to believe, as it goes against our faith.
How can that be?
Yes we born again believers already have faith in Jesus, and blessed are they who have faith without seeing.
BUT what about most of the human race. I receive many comments daily saying''there is NO evidence of Jesus'' Because ALL the Bible and ancient writings of Jesus could be written by anyone and were written by so many people, years after the events, which could easily be made up, they tell me.

Below is an example of the many comments I receive every day from people who believe there is NO evidence of the Bible.

*Here are just a few things that we, as intelligent sentient beings, know are FACTS:*
FACT: As of today, the prevailing stance on the Exodus from most, if not all of the biblical scholars in, Jerusalem  and, in fact, Israel is that it never happened.  The Jews were not slaves in Egypt and there was never a mass exodus from there.
FACT: The age of the earth is approximately 4 billion years old.
FACT: Dinosaurs did not live with man.
FACT: There is no evidence of a world wide flood.
FACT: Evolution is a fact.
FACT: The Big Bang is a fact.
FACT: We have a common ancestor with apes and we share 99% of our DNA with chimps.
FACT: There is no Chain of Custody for the bible. That puts its authenticity in question.
FACT: Since the beginning of recorded history, there has been no prophecy that has been proved with evidence to have occurred.

You need to answer "The Simple 18!"  Which is: Can you please show me the evidence you use to prove the things you believe about your god? A very simple 18 word question.I am an engineer and I use science every single day.  None of what you have given me is evidence.  Its junk science.  It's opinions.  It's what other people believe. It's anecdotal stories.  As an engineer I cannot use any of these as evidence to prove anything.

We have THE PHYSICAL AND VISIBLE EVIDENCE OF JESUS on The Shroud that proves ALL the Bible and ancient writings of Jesus and The Prophecies In The Bible to be ABSOLUTELY accurate.

Many fail to understand. It is having faith in Jesus and accepting Him, is how the lost can then see the accuracy of the Bible. Until people have faith in Jesus, facts and evidence of the Bible will mean or prove nothing. As St Thomas needed to SEE the holes from the nails in His hands and His spear wound in His side, to believe in the Resurrection of Jesus.
The same stands for most of the human populating, the vast amount of people, cannot gain faith from just reading the Bible. 
But instead faith in Jesus can be gained by SEEING the VISIBLE and PHYSICAL torture of Jesus of the forty lashes, the scars, pierced body, and the painful puncture wounds from the crown of thorns which pierced His head. His plucked out beard and records His humiliation by the Romans, who punched and bruised His swollen cheekbones. His pain from carrying His own cross, which can be seen by the damaged knee from falling. His agony from the blood shed of His pierced hands and feet, that bears silent witness to the horror of the cross. His spear wound in His side, and yes, the ultimate triumph of the Resurrection of Jesus (Yeshua) meaning Salvation. All this is recorded supernaturally on The Shroud of Turin.
Now we can understand why God preserved the evidence of Jesus on the Shroud. Here is where many can gain faith in Jesus, so Jesus can then remove peoples spiritual blindness, so the lost can then see the accuracy of the Bible. 
Yet what we find is certain Christians condemning the Shroud, which stops many from gaining faith in Jesus, which keeps the lost in spiritual blindness, which stops most from believing Jesus including believing the Bible is historical FACT.

It is very clear most of the population clearly do need to see the evidence of Jesus.
Sadly, It seems these Christians who teach the Shroud is a forgery are only thinking of themselves and seem to have little concern for their lost friends and neighbours. They seem to have adopted the approach:
I AM ALL RIGHT JACK I AM SAVED.
Yet most of the human race are queuing up to get in and through the gates of HELL.
Are these Christians who teach the Shroud is a forgery widening the path to HELL? I do not know and let God be the judge.

The amount of Christians who send me the Bible verses below saying:
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 King James Version (KJV)
for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. Romans 14:23 King James Version (KJV)

Then why did St Thomas clearly need to see the evidence of the Resurrection of Jesus to believe and gain faith? IF we do not all need to see evidence to gain faith.

Jesus Himself proved and demonstrated with St Thomas, ''many'' need to see the evidence to believe and gain faith in Him. And from the comments left on our book, many Christians have confirmed their faith in Jesus have been hugely strengthened and solidified. One Christian calls me regularly with tears of joy because of the the evidence of the Resurrection of Jesus, who has purchased dozens of our little booklet on the Shroud.
The Shroud of Turin Speaks for Itself [Paperback] 


I believe Jesus was using St Thomas to demonstrate this point. Which agrees with Jesus saying: 
SEEK AND YOU WILL FIND. Matthew 7:7. 

I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. 
Proverbs 8:17. 
Just as Jesus also illustrated a merchant, who was "searching" for that "pearl of great price". In Matthew 13:45-46. Which I believe was a person who was on a mission to find the truth of God. (Just as people who are looking at Bible Discoveries and The Shroud of Turin)

Now we can truly understand why God preserved the visible and physical evidence of Jesus on The Shroud of Turin told in John 19:40. And the Sudarium of Oviedo as told in John 20:7.

Because God had already known that most of the human race would be full of Doubting Thomases. 

It seems there are Christians who have become Doubting Thomases, who say they do not need to SEE to believe. But condemn the Shroud and STOP others like Doubting Thomases who do need to SEE to believe and gain faith in Jesus and be saved.

We clearly see God wants ''ALL'' to be saved. 
Just as Jesus demonstrated the kind of love for the lost displayed by our heavenly Father in heaven.

These parables answered the charge that Jesus received sinners and ate with them, and beautifully illustrate "The Father's Yearning Love For The Lost" (Hendriksen) 
 
Jesus made it clear to us how The Father goes out of his way to call and save even one lost soul. 

We clearly see when we look at the Shroud God has provided ALL THE PHYSICAL AND VISIBLE EVIDENCE OF JESUS FOR EVERYONE TO GAIN FAITH IN JESUS AND BE SAVED.
Just as Jesus told Doubting Thomase to look at His hands and side and believe.

THE Evidence and The True Face of The Shroud Film Part 1


WHY?
For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye. Ezekiel 18:32 .

 The Shroud of Turin as told in John 19:40. And the Sudarium of Oviedo as told in John 20:7, PROVES, CONFIRMS, and DEMONSTRATES the Holy
Bible to be forensically accurate and perfectly reliable in every possible way and in every detail truthful concerning the most important event in human 
history-the crucifixion of Jesus, the greatest miracle in the world, the Resurrection of Yeshua.

When we "believe" that Jesus Christ truly died on the cross for our sins and if we believe that Jesus rose from the dead, and follow Him 
by taking up our cross, you shall be saved.

1 Thessalonians 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

MANY need physical proof as Doubting Thomas DID. 
AS Jesus clearly DEMONSTRATED. Well here it is.

Some simply believe. The Bible says, "Blessed are those who have not seen, yet hath believed." Whether you believe what I have shared or not, and you have not yet received this free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord, now is the day. Let today be the day of your salvation!

If you are looking for the evidence of Jesus, If you are like Doubting Thomas. We know there are millions of people who do NOT believe Jesus was who He claimed to be. The click here and SEE HE DIED FOR YOU AND ME.

It is time to turn away from our sins, believe and receive salvation, and follow Jesus. Amen.

Friends, I have eyes to see and ears to hear. PLEASE do send me your comments and let me know your thoughts,
 as I still have time to repent.
For 100's of years Father God has been using The Shroud of Turn as told in John 19:40. And the Sudarium of Oviedo as told in John 20:7. 
TO PROVE HIS DIVINE LOVE FOR THE WORLD.

For 100's of years Jesus Christ has been using The Shroud of Turn as told in John 19:40. And the Sudarium of Oviedo as told in John 20:7. TO PROVE HIS CRUCIFIXION, DEATH, AND RESURRECTION for the millions of Doubting Thomas just as Jesus demonstrated with St Thomas who NEED to SEE to BELIEVE to gain FAITH to be SAVED.

In the last days The Holy Spirit has been using The Shroud of Turn as told in John 19:40. And the Sudarium of Oviedo as told in John 20:7.
TO CALL ALL TO REPENTANCE.
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: Acts 2:17.

For 100's of years The Shroud of Turn as told in John 19:40. And the Sudarium of Oviedo as told in John 20:7. Has brought COUNTLESS souls To God in repentance who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour who will be saved.

ALL confirmed by Jesus with Doubting Thomas who need to see to believe to be saved.
That is why God preserved THE BURIAL CLOTHS OF JESUS. AMEN.

The Evidence of the Shroud Speaks for Itself.

What did a group of 26 scientists discover on the Shroud of Turin?
Did you know? A group of 26 scientists performed an in-depth examination on the Shroud of Turin with the most advanced technology in human history.

What did they discover?

The 26 scientists discovered the 3 D image of a crucified man which is embedded into the Shroud of Turin believed to be Jesus Christ, just as recorded in the four Gospels, could not be ''reproduced'' with the best applications machinery and devices ever developed from scientific knowledge in the world history.  

Why?
Jesus said: unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Matthew 19:26.

In an interview Emma myself and one of God's chosen elected Jews Barrie M. Schwortz of Shroud.Com, who has dedicated his life by raising from the dead the visible and physical evidence of Jesus, who works extremely hard by promoting and proving to the millions of Doubting Thomases that the Shroud of Turin is not a hoax or a forgery.

Barrie  told us  there were more of his Jewish friends who believed the Shroud was genuine and the 3 D image was certainly Jesus then there was Christians who believed it genuine.

This is an amazing statement considering most of God's people the chosen elected Jews rejected Jesus and only wanted Him dead, buried and hidden out the way, who mostly still do not believe Jesus Christ is the saviour of the world. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: (Jesus) for he wrote of me. John 5:46.

Yet we now see God is using and has chosen one of His elected Jews Barrie to prove the crucifixion, death, and resurrection of Jesus (Yeshua) who the Christians believe is the promised Messiah.

It seems clear to me God has provided and preserved the evidence of Jesus so that future generations may study it and come to believe and be saved.

Confirmed by some of the best scientists using the most advanced technology in the world who are now coming forward and proving, confirming, admitting and confessing that the 3 D image of a crucified beaten and tortured man just as told in the four Gospels, proves the Holy Bible and the greatest day in history yet.
And confirms the ultimate triumph of the Resurrection of Jesus (Yeshua) meaning Salvation which is all recorded supernaturally on The Shroud of Turin.

Now there's the evidence of a merciful, gracious, forgiving God, which clearly seems He is going to extreme lengths to proving His strong feelings of affection with intense passion, devotion and love by calling and demonstrating to ''ALL'' the world bursting with millions of scoffers and Doubting Thomases, to come and see what He and Jesus did for us, by reminding ''ALL'' to look, comprehend and try to understand his visible and physical love.
Because: God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16.
Because He is: not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (And be saved) 2 Peter 3:8 - 9. King James Bible.

Most of the scientific data on the Shroud image are from the work carried out by a team of 26 scientists under the auspices of the Shroud of Turin Research Project, Inc., (STURP) (1978), that performed an in-depth examination on the Shroud with electromagnetic energy, from infrared to x-rays, obtaining data leading to the analysis of the sub-stances making up the body image and bloodstains. 4-12 The STURP measurements show that the body image is not painted, printed, singed by a heated bas-relief, or rubbed on a sculpture; moreover, the image color resides on the top-most fibers in the cloth weave. Reference 1 listed more than forty chemical and physical features of the Shroud image,and up to date all attempts to reproduce an image with the same microscopic and macroscopic aspect as well as all the chemical and physical characteristics have been unsuccessful. In this respect, the origin of the body image is still unknown
