John 20:1-1O New International Version (NIV)
The Empty Tomb
Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance.
So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”
So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb.
He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen.
Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.) Then the disciples went back to where they were staying.’
The latest developments when it comes to the carbon test’
The carbon test was not conclusive since the sample was not relevant. Taken from a part of the shroud that had been repaired after medieval fires. The sample was cotton. Not linen.
It has been rectified by scientist… but was not given priority by the media. Check your sources…
The shroud of Turin on Amazon
With Easter upon us tomorrow it was nice to come across your website. It was good to read through and refresh my memory of the happenings of that time. With everything happening now it is more important than ever to have faith. While I am not Catholic I did find your site very informative. I enjoyed reading through many of the posts. Thank you for all you’re doing.Rob
Thank you Rob. Have a blessed Eastern!
The Shroud of Turin certainly has a lot of mystery surrounding it. It is certainly a interesting artifact to study as long as the focus remains on Jesus, His crucifixion and His resurrection. This article, as well as the documentary that you attached is really interesting and makes me want to research it a little more. If it is the real burial shroud of Jesus, then what an incredible find that is!
