Shroud of Turin On Display For First Time in Five Years

Daniel 12:4 NLT “But you, Daniel, keep this prophecy a secret; seal up the book until the time of the end, when many will rush here and there, and knowledge will increase."

Over a million people are expected to head to Turin, Italy for a glimpse of one of the most rarely viewed historical items.

The Shroud of Turin is believed to be imprinted with the face of Christ.  The shroud has only been displayed to the public five times since 1933. The shroud is usually kept inside a sealed container in a chapel next to the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist.

The BBC said that one of the visitors will be Pope Francis.  The Vatican has never acknowledged the shroud as authentic although they admit the item is “important.”

Gary Habermas of Liberty University says that one of the recent discoveries on the Shroud is that the teeth of the person wrapped in it are visible.

“His skin is intact, his beard is intact, but you are able to see what’s inside coming out, just like if you are able to see what’s on the back of a hand,” he said.

“This is one of the best indications that the man in the Shroud, who was dead and was crucified, (has) radiation coming out,” he said of the teeth discovery. “And if that’s what this is, you’ve got something from the inside (coming out).

“(The teeth) are on the inside, but on the photo they are showing outside. Whichever way (the radiation) is coming, it dragged the image from the inside to the outside.”

The Archbishop of Turin says that regardless of what people believe about the Shroud, the relic is important.

“[It shows] in a clear and precise manner how the Gospels describe the passion and death of Jesus,” Archibishop Cesare Nosiglia said.

One thought on “Shroud of Turin On Display For First Time in Five Years

  1. With Jesus’s beard being pulled off of his face, wouldn’t the shroud be one with the face having little
    or no facial hair?

    Isaiah 50:6King James Version (KJV)

    6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair:
    I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

    Isaiah 50:6English Standard Version (ESV)

    6
    I gave my back to those who strike, and my cheeks to those who pull out the beard;
    I hid not my face from disgrace and spitting.
