The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is, we believe, proved by the Shroud of Turin
Jesus Christ rose from the dead
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most famous resurrection in history, and is at the heart of the Christian message. After the Crucifixion, Jesus Christ rose from the dead. We believe this is scientifically proved by the Shroud of Turin, the burial cloth of Jesus Christ.
After three days, Jesus’ mother and Mary Magdalene went to the tomb to perform the full Jewish burial. The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is described in all four gospels. We have reproduced the account from Matthew 28:1-10, TLB:
“Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to the tomb. Suddenly there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord came down from Heaven and rolled aside the stone and sat on it. His face shone like lightning and his clothing was a brilliant white. The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and fell into a dead faint. Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be frightened!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified, but he isn’t here! For he has come back to life again, just as he said he would. Come in and see where his body was lying. .And now, go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and that he is going to Galilee to meet them there. That is my message to them. The women ran from the tomb, badly frightened, but also filled with joy, and rushed to find the disciples to give them the angel’s message. And as they were running, suddenly Jesus was there in front of them! “Good morning!” he said. And they fell to the ground before him, holding his feet and worshiping him. Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t be frightened! Go tell my brothers to leave at once for Galilee, to meet me there.”
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ and the Shroud of Turin
We believe that the Shroud of Turin is the actual burial cloth of Jesus Christ. It contains both the blood stains and a faint photo-negative image of a crucified man.
We will attempt to prove that the Shroud is the authentic burial cloth of Jesus, and that the image on the Shroud can be explained by the Bible and an application of known laws of Theoretical Physics.
We also believe that the carbon dating of 1325 AD has been incorrectly interpreted. The carbon dating machines correctly demonstrated the additional Carbon-14 isotopes in the Shroud.
This has been widely interpreted as showing that the shroud could not come from the times of Jesus Christ (33A.D) but is dated 1325 AD approximately.
There is another far more intriguing explanation!
We believe that the additional Carbon 14 isotopes in a first Century Shroud actually prove that radiation took place, emitted at the Resurrection.
We believe that the radiation actually caused the image on the Shroud, and the additional Carbon -14 atoms at the same time.
In other words, we believe that the additional Carbon-14 isotopes demonstrated by carbon dating machines in the Shroud actually prove the Resurrection of Jesus Christ!
