    YOU BETTER CHECK THE FACTS - you know, the ones found by scientists, not religious zealots.  They have proof that the shroud IS NOT REAL.

    Not that I'm an atheist, but the Shroud of Turin is a forgery. Jesus had a separate cloth to cover his face.

      No, it was not from Biblical times ! It is a religious lie.

    It has already been proven to be fake.... several times.

    It has been proven to be not from Biblical times, dating around 1300 a.d. but even if I granted the time frame you desire. You have an image of a person supposedly crucified during a time when many were crucified. Considering the evidence that NT writers provide and the sources they clearly used, Jesus never actually existed, but even if we ignore this evidence, and you get it down to a historical Jesus, it still does not get you to your desired conclusion.

    Curiously In no scripture in the New Testament is mentioned that Shroud... no one letter or writing of the Apostles mentions that wonderful "miracle"...  

    I won't call you a liar but there is a Bible and verses about the TOMB maybe you do not believe the Bible and got your alternative facts about what was there...

    Biblical

    Luke 24:12   Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulcher; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, 

    ...no full shroud or any image of Jesus mentioned, there are little definite historical records concerning the shroud prior to the 14th century. Although there are numerous reports of Jesus' burial shroud, or an image of his head, of unknown origin, being venerated in various locations before the 14th century, hint various...

    The first certain record (in Lirey, France) in 1390 when Bishop Pierre d'Arcis wrote a memorandum to Pope Clement VII (Avignon Obedience), stating that the shroud was a forgery and that the artist had confessed... hint forgery

    What makes you think that the Shroud of Turin can be traced to Biblical times? It was dated by carbon 14 testing to the 13th century. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiocarbon_dating_o...
