What is extremely significant in the Shroud case file is that THE SHROUD KNOWS DETAILS OF THE CRIME NOT RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC.
THE SHROUD OF TURIN KNOWS THINGS ONLY A PERSON WHO WAS AT THE CRIME SCENE WOULD KNOW.
I am not using caps because I am angry. But it is a very important that I make my points clear. I will briefly go over some of these points.Ever see a forensic files episode when they question a suspect and the suspect unknowingly gives a detail of the crime scene?
SUSPECT TELLS POLICE: I am not the one who strangled her to death.
POLICE RESPOND: We never said she was strangled.
How do you know she was? Were you there?
It is a common tactic used in all murder cases. Details of the crime are not released to the public, so that when a witness comes forward and tells their story, the police will compare the story with the forensic evidence that only they know. The information they purposely withheld from the public. If the witness can explain the details of the crime, they know they have a credible witness who was very likely at the crime scene or spoke to someone who was. This was done with the Boston Strangler who knew details of the crime when he confessed. There was at a time they were not sure they had the right man. This is a way to be sure the witness is credible. THEY MUST KNOW THE DETAILS OF THE CRIME.
DETAILS, is the key word here. When a suspect is telling a BS story the police will ask them details of what happened
SUSPECT TELLS POLICE : I was at a restaurant when he was killed
POLICE ASK: What did you order? What songs were playing at the restaurant while you were eating and not committing the murder? Which table did you sit at? How many chairs were around that table? Did the restaurant have a flat screen TV? What was playing on the TV?
SUSPECT TELLS POLICE: I was at home alone watching TV at the time of the crime
POLICE ASK: What show did you watch? Did you have anything to eat while watching TV? What did you have to eat? Did anyone call you during this time? Did you make any phone calls during this time? What clothes were you wearing at the time?
YES, THE SHROUD GIVES US A VERY DETAILED ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAPPENED TO JESUS.
IT IS NOT JUST SAYING, JESUS WAS SCOURGED, THE SHROUD TELLS US EXACTLY HOW MANY TIMES HE WAS SCOURGED AND WHERE.
SHROUD KNOWS DETAILS OF THE CRIME, NOT RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC, NOT WRITTEN IN THE GOSPEL ACCOUNT.
The Spirit of God like the Police had information about the crime/ the execution of Jesus hidden from the public and did not want it included in the Gospel account, instead wanted his other rock solid witness, The Shroud to explain the details and expand upon what was written in the Gospel accounts.
THE SHROUD IS A WITNESS. A ROCK SOLID WITNESS, SHROUD IS INCABABLE OF LYING OR BEING DECPETIVE, SIMPLY STATES FACTS AND OFFERS DETAILED EVENTS THAT OCCURERED TO THE PERSON WHO MADE CONTACT WITH THE CLOTH.
1. SERUM RETRACTION RINGS. Under Ultra Violet Fluorescent Photography, almost all the blood (scientific research has proven that it is human blood) shows a serum retraction ring of albumin around the solid parts of the blood, typical for post-mortem blood. (Nearly 400 blood stains) (This is the 1st clue that lets us know Man in the Shroud was dead)
Does it say in the Gospel of John, "and serum contractions rings were visible around the side wound made by the Roman Hasta and the blood and water that flowed horizontally from the side wound then went across his lower back in a vertical direction"
The Shroud tells us the side was pierced like John said and then goes further into the details of what happened. It expands upon what is written in the Gospel account, in a way no other image of Jesus had ever done before or since.
Can anyone imagine someone saying while creating The Shroud Image,
“Let’s put serum contraction rings around the 400 blood stains, even though we don't know what serum contraction rings are”
2. Scourge Wounds
Does it say in scripture? "And Jesus was scourged over his entire body” or “it was an extremely savage and brutal beating he took" “his entire body was covered in scourge stripes”
No, it does not say that. In scripture it merely states he was scourged, it does not say exactly where, it is very vague. It does say, and the plowers plowed on my back, and another I gave my back to those who struck me.
The Bible implies that the scourge wounds were focused on his back.
The Bible does imply that his wounds were severe such as “his image was marred/disfigured more than any man” but it is not specific.
The Shroud tells a more complete story. It tells us how he was marred and disfigured, exactly how, Scourge wounds over his entire body for one.
If this was a manmade deal, scourge wounds would have been focused on his back side as it is written in the Bible.
Only someone present at the crime scene would know the scourging was more serious than most people think or would know exactly how to place them and the length of each scourge wound.
The Shroud also tells us 2 people were involved in the scourging. One was taller than the other.
Nowhere in scripture does it say "Jesus was scourged by 2 people, one taller than the other"
SHROUD KNOWS DETAILS OF THE CRIME COMMITTED AGAINST JESUS.
INFORMATION NOT RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC. NOT PRESENT IN ANY OTHER IMAGE OF JESUS.
3. RIGOR MORTISRigor mortis begins with the eyelids, neck, and jaw. Teeth are visible on Shroud image, jaw is locked into a fixed position. Evidence the body was in state of rigor mortis.
Does it say in scripture, "The body of Jesus was stiff and he was buried with his knees raised"
Forensic Evidence on shroud clearly makes it known body of Jesus was in rigor mortis.One Foot makes a complete impression from one heel to other end of foot on the linen, meaning his knees were in an upper position when laid on the cloth. There is no smearing of blood because the body was in a fixed position, static, not moving as in DEAD. More evidence that supports a dead body made contact with the Shroud.
Only someone who was at the crime scene would know details like that.
Shroud knows….Why? Because The Shroud was there at the CRIME SCENE!
After 2–3 days after a body dies discoloration appears on the skin of the abdomen and the abdomen begins to swell due to gas formation.
The Spirit of God planned all this from the beginning. What is in the Gospel account is what he wanted. Spirit of God purposefully left out DETAILS OF THE CRIME SCENE, So, His other witness, THE SHROUD could fills in the gaps and tells us more of the story. DETAILS OF THE CRIME COMMITTED AGAINST JESUS OF NAZARETH.
