Proverbs 8:34-36 Blessed is the man who hears me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my door posts. For whoever finds me finds life, and will obtain favor from Yahweh. But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul. All those who hate me love death.” Psalm 84: 11 For Yahweh God is a sun and a shield. Yahweh will give grace and glory. He withholds no good thing from those who walk blamelessly. 12 Yahweh of Armies, blessed is the man who trusts in you. 1 John 5:5 Now who is the one overcoming the world, except the one believing that Jesus is the Son of God?

Dear friends, please would you pray for our dear friend David Hines, as he has been very sick.
He just sent me this message saying:
I've been sick for almost 3 months now. I've been having some chest pains and heart pain. I went to a ER yesterday but they could not find anything in chest xrays, or cat scan or blood or EKG. A mystery illness. I think the mosquito disease virus may have got into my heart. I don't think so. But it's possible. It doesn't feel right. Something is wrong with me but I don't know what it is.
My future here on Earth is in the hands of the Lord.
Shroud of Turin was thoroughly examined by no less than 7 Forensic Pathologists and blood chemistry experts. Their testimony is the ONLY VALID TESTIMONY in regards to the authenticity of the Shroud because the Shroud of Turin case file is primarily a question of Did a genuine dead body make contact with the cloth or not? They answered that question with 100% certainty.
Yes, a genuine dead body made contact with the Shroud of Turin. A forensic pathologist working with a blood chemistry expert are the only people qualified to make that determination. Any other testimony is worthless, including my own, I am not a forensic pathologist or a blood chemistry expert.
If the person reading this is also not a forensic pathologist or a blood chemistry expert, your testimony is also worthless. (At least in a court of law authenticity type setting) Holds zero weight. Unless one has seen the Shroud of Turin up close and examined it and is a forensic pathologist or a blood chemistry expert you would never be put on the stand. Because a jury could care less about your opinion, it means nothing. That holds true for me as well, I would not be put on the stand. I don't have the proper credentials. Although I have seen the Shroud of Turin, the whole 14' cloth up close and personal. I am not a forensic pathologist. So I would not be called to testify.
In a court of law authenticity type setting the only testimony that would sway A jury one way or the other would come from
1. Someone who personally examined the Shroud of Turin and has seen the whole 14' cloth in person and
2. Is a blood chemistry expert or forensic pathologist. 95% if not 100% of the weight of the scale which determines the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin rests on the final report and conclusions drawn by the forensic pathologists and blood chemistry experts. That was done. It tipped all the way over to 100% AUTHENTIC!!!
Here they are.
1. Dr. Frederick Zugibe, Forensic pathologist, Chief Medical Examiner of Rockland county New York for 33 years. PHD IN ANATOMY. A EXPERT WITNESS Involved in over 10,000 autopsies.
HIS CONCLUSION: SHROUD IS AUTHENTIC
HIS FAMOUS QUOTE. I HAVE NO DOUBT IN MY MIND WHAT SO EVER.
In other words he is 100% convinced without a flicker of doubt in his mind. If you believe the Shroud is authentic, you are in good company, you are in agreement with a expert forensic pathologist who actually saw the Shroud of Turin and examined it over a course of years, note I said years, not days or months, YEARS.
(there are some idiotic moronic skeptics in disagreement with him, bear in mind none of them have seen the Shroud of Turin and none of them are forensic pathologists)
2. Dr Pierre Barbet: Chief Surgeon St Josephs Hospital, Paris France Battle field Surgeon
HIS CONCLUSION; SHROUD IS AUTHENTIC
Wrote a book after his examination was complete called Doctor at Calvary.
3. Dr. Robert Bucklin Professor of Forensic Pathology Involved in over 25,000 autopsies, considered one of the worlds leading experts in forensic pathology
HIS CONCLUSION SHROUD IS AUTHENTIC
HIS FAMOUS QUOTE INDISPUTABLE
4. Dr. Alan Adler: Blood Chemistry Expert
HIS CONCLUSION SHROUD IS AUTHENTIC
NOTE; HE PERFORMED OVER A DOZEN TESTS ON THE BLOOD ON THE SHROUD AND PROVED IT TO BE GENUINE BLOOD,, ACCEPTABLE EVIDENCE IN A COURT OF LAW
5. Dr. John Heller; Blood Chemistry Expert HIS CONCLUSION SHROUD IS AUTHENTIC, BLOOD IS TYPE AB, ELEVATED LEVELS OF BILIRUBIN, TESTED POSITIVE FOR HUMAN ALBUMIN, BILE PIGMENTS AND PROTEIN.
6. Dr. Baima Ballone: Forensic pathologist and blood chemistry expert
HIS CONCLUSION SHROUD IS AUTHENTIC
Note: He also did tests on the Sudarium of Oviedo and found myrrh and aloes in the blood By anti body antigen testing. Sudarium and Shroud have the same blood.
7. Dr. Max Frei: Head of the Forensic Science Police Department. Swiss Criminologist Took pollen samples from Shroud in 1973 and did a thorough examination. Saw the Shroud of Turin in person and examined it. Went to the Holy Land to identify pollens on the Shroud that were not in his records or books.
HIS FAMOUS QUOTE
I CAN AFFIRM WITHOUT FEAR OF BEING PROVEN WRONG THIS CLOTH DATES BACK TO PALESTINE 2000 YEARS AGO Dr. Max Frei
DR. MAX FREI FOUND POLLENS ON THE SHROUD THAT HAVE BEEN EXTINCT SINCE THE EARLY CENTURIES.
SO MUCH FOR THE CARBON DATING NON SENSE.
SKEPTICS DON'T LIKE THIS KIND OF INFO, BECAUSE IT DESTROYS THEM.
IN A COURT OF LAW TYPE SETTING THE SKEPTICS COULD NOT PRODUCE ONE WITNESS TO TAKE THE STAND AGAINST THE AUTHENTICITY OF THE SHROUD, THEIR STRATEGY AND "PROOF" the Shroud is not authentic IS ALWAYS REDUCED TO CHARACTER ASSASSINATION because they don't have any evidence.
READ THE COMMENTS AFTER THIS POST. You will see that I am right.
SHROUD IS AUTHENTIC, That comes from Forensic pathologists and blood chemistry experts. In a higher court type setting Shroud would be proven to be authentic beyond a reasonable doubt.

Some years ago, on another film of ours, Sodom and Gomorrah, I was left this comment by a viewer:
"God always chooses 'nobodies' - men and women who do not have power, wealth, titles or statuses - to reveal and share the truth. Nice video."
Though this was aimed at Sodom and Gomorrah, the comment stands true for Our Search for the Tomb of Jesus film. We were nobodies attempting to discover the Tomb of Jesus, but God worked through us to help us to produce this film and share the news of Jesus.
As God worked through David, the lowly shepherd boy in 1 Samuel 16 who went on to sly the giant Goliath and was rewarded by becoming the King of Israel, our struggles may seem monumental, but with the help of God, we can conquer them. With open minds, this story should encourage us to be happy in our lives, to help us to ignore those who try to discourage us and ignore our gifts and talents.
After all, serving God with all of your heart is more important than what you can 'do' for Him! Whether we are a scientist, archaeologist, teacher, preacher or just a man on the street, God can use us for His glory. The way may be paved with obstacles and enemies, but if we remain steadfast in our love for God, He will build us up like He did with David so that we may conquer even the greatest obstacles!
As a nobody who had the wonderful opportunity of travelling to Israel, I wondered at the disbelief that many of my crew had as we set out. I wondered what we would find and whether God would work through us to share our findings.
As it is written in Matthew 7:7, "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." Throughout our time in Israel looking for the Tomb of Jesus, there were many times when we were seeking and asking. It is through God's grace that we were able to bring you this film with our findings.
I thank God and stand in amazement at how he has used our work to bless others and to raise it to a level of influence for His Kingdom. I feel truly humbled at what he can do with a little, and like with the loaves and fishes, multiply it to feed the thousands.
Thank you Lord for all you have done and may this story encourage others to step out in faith for you.
Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27.
Thank you for reading this article, and may God bless those who seek him, in Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Our Search for the Tomb of Jesus.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Thank you for joining me in this new year of 2016. Last year, I presented many articles containing evidence both from the Bible and contemporary historians who wrote about Christians and Jesus when discussing the Bible’s accounts. If you have just joined my mailing list, or have clicked on this page, you can read the many articles here.
I recently read about a Bible scholar who very sadly turned from his faith – this is another Bible prophecy being fulfilled: ‘Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.’ 1 Timothy 4:1. King James Bible. Please pray that these people will come back to Jesus, while there is still time.
On the other hand, there are many encouraging stories of extreme atheists who have changed their minds about their belief in God. For instance, we have all read and heard about the English ethologist, evolutionary biologist, and writer, atheist Richard Dawkins, who states: “I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.” This is a peculiar statement when you think that the Bible gives us specific answers regarding how and why we are here, and how the world became to be. This can be compared to the unproven theory of evolution, which is clearly a mistaken belief, based on enormous deceptions and the failure of logic, reasoning, and understanding of the truth. This renders evolution invalid, because it consists of a range of elaborate hoaxes. I wrote a popular article called Is There Valid and True Evidence to Support Natural Selection Proving Evolution? which you can read if you’d like to find out more.
Richard Dawkins is a well-known sceptic, but there is an interesting man who was probably a greater sceptic than even him, and his is a fascinating story. His name was Antony Flew – one of the world’s leading atheists – and he recently died. Just before he passed, however, he changed his mind; as he was closing his eyes, he started to see the light, started to think about the complex DNA in the building blocks of life, and he realised that life couldn’t simply have come about by random chance. He came to accept, in his last moments, that an intelligent mind had to have designed every living creature. It is said that he didn’t become a Christian exactly, but that he did discover more than most atheists discovered in their life – a belief in the existence of a supreme being, specifically of a creator.
You can read more about Antony Flew on the BBC website here. http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/ni/2010/04/antony_flew_the_atheist_who_ch.html
