What are your views on the Shroud of Turin and the claim that God could have sent us this ‘proof’ of the Divinity of Jesus?
The Shroud of Turin is a rectangular linen cloth comprised of flax measuring 14.6 feet long and 3.5 feet wide. It bears a faint yellowed image of a bearded, crucified man with bloodstains that match the wounds suffered by Jesus of Nazareth as recorded in all four gospel narratives.
Its a photo negative from a real person, there is no paint on the image, the photograph of the Shroud is the only known two dimensional image on Planet Earth that displays three dimensionality, analysis of the grains and plants found on the Shroud are identified as coming from species that could be found only in the months of March and April in the Jerusalem region, and so on.
The people that surrounded Jesus in His time had the advantage that they could believe in his Divinity because they saw His miracles.
Could it be that God gave us this ‘piece of evidence’ so modern people could also be without excuse?
I know that we don’t need this kind of evidence to believe in the Divinity of Jesus (John 20:29
‘Blessed are those who have not seen, and have believed.”) but isn’t it a welcome and strong confirmation if true?
Your thoughts please.
