The Shroud of Turin is considered by many to be the burial cloth of Jesus after He was Crucified.This conclusion seems really unbelievable once the actual facts are considered. It can be traced back to 1354 AD with good documentation.
In 1578, it was placed in the Cathedral of Turin, Italy, where it remains (and where it received its popular name).The implication is that this long cloth was laid flat, the body was laid on top of half of it and then the other half of the cloth was folded back over the body.This situation may certainly have been true for whoever the person was whose image is preserved in the cloth.Modern science cannot explain how the images could have appeared in the cloth and cannot duplicate the results by any known means.However, that person could not possibly have been Jesus, for at least two independent reasons.In the day of Jesus, Jewish society was incredibly structured. John -40 is very precise in indicating that Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus prepared Jesus' body in the manner of the Jews for proper burial.
Every aspect of life was precisely defined and controlled by religious beliefs. This procedure involves extensive wrapping of the body, while including a LOT of myrrh and aloes that would get placed between the various layers of cloth.
Specifically, John says that "Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury." The amount of myrrh and aloes used in this ritual was a sign of the respect for that individual.
The Shroud is a piece of linen cloth 14'3" long by 3'7" wide.
The unusual thing about it is that it appears to have an image of the front and back of a man who was about 6' tall.
The image appears as a negative rather than a positive image, and it shows features that can be interpreted as marks of crucifixion.
That image is nowhere near as distinct as most people think! The image that is usually presented is an ENHANCED image, which DOES appear to show the image of a person, which is just barely recognizable to a person looking at the cloth.
