Jews, hated by world leaders for producing a world-savior, were anathema to the non-jews of the Roman Church system, who in their jealousy manufactured a false God and false Son-of-God to 'cover' for the real entities — a jealousy since carried into Islamic and other monolithic religions.
Therefore, successors to the old Roman Empire subliminally believe that the Son-of-God is one of their own, and that the celebrated shroud is his.
However, an old, unrecoverable newspaper article said that real Jewish Burial cloths cast doubt on the celebrated shroud's authenticity because—
Archaeologists have discovered the first known burial shroud in Jerusalem from the time of Christ's crucifixion - and say it casts serious doubt on the claimed authenticity of the Turin Shroud.
Ancient shrouds from the period have been found before in the Holy Land, but never in Jerusalem. Researchers say the weave and design of the shroud discovered in a burial cave near Jerusalem's Old City are completely different to the Turin Shroud.
There was a separate wrapping for the head itself, which was very important because when they brought someone to burial they would place the head wrapping separately on the face in case the person wasn't actually dead and woke up again, they would be able to blow off the face wrapping and shout for help,' said Gibson.
This did occur quite a lot in antiquity because they didn't have the medical means we have today. The idea was that if you enshrouded somebody, you had a separate set of wrappings for the body and a separate set of wrappings for the head,' he said.The observer disputes the Turin Shroud for both the previous and other reasons listed below—
- John 20:7 specifically goes out of its way to tell of our Lord Joshua's burial FACE CLOTH as having been found apart from the other wrappings;
- The physical fact is that any image produced by a wrapped or draped cloth would, when opened flat, splay an exaggeration of the transference, where Turin's shroud shows an almost photographic image.
- Close examination of the entire shroud shows images of gargoyles protecting it from each corner, never a good sign; and,
Perhaps that last bit is a stretchy supposition, but remember how the Ark of the Covenant killed those around it ... or when a dead man sprang alive upon touching the encrypted bones of Elisha, in 2 Kings 13.
- ANY artifact from the ACTUAL Lord Son of God would either kill or heal the person touching it.
The Shroud controversy recalls the days when people were often mistakenly buried alive, which caused some 1800’s undertakers to snake pull-strings inside caskets that were attached to bells above-ground, enabling anyone woken-up inside a burial to alert passersby, thus engendering the phrase: "Saved By The Bell."
If the Son-of-God had not been of the Hebrew Judaic line—buried as according to Roman customs—then the Shroud of Turin would be believable. But as he is and as he was, then it's not believable, is it?
If you MUST believe in something, believe in the God who made you and the Son-of-God who made the world, and have the Son introduce you to the Father and they'll explain it all to you, and maybe rescue you out of it.
Because the Son-of-God IS the pull-string that gets us off earth and back to heaven.
