        Q: Do you believe the Shroud of Turin is the burial cloth of Jesus Christ?
A: I resolutely think that the Shroud of Turin 's all true .   The principal objection to its genuineness 's the carbon dating . While it is authentic that carbon 14 dating placed the shroud as being from the thirteenth-fifteenth century , two things is required to taken into examineation . One , various slices were snipped from the shroud in the first few days for utilized as relics . In these spheres , medieval nuns rewove fabric onto the Shroud , as well as adding in other patches . This reweaving process means that any sampling taken from a rewoven area would have a fake dated , and the bits taken from the Shroud for dating were , indeeds , taken from these rewoven spheres .   Two , the Shroud survived a fire in the Middle Ages . Carbon from the fire would also have messed up the dating process .   I noted that one answerer disputed the Shroud 's genuineness over the napkin . I went to Bible Gateway and to the USCCB website and scoured for the word `` napkin . '' I did a multiple-translation searching , browsing in the most usually utilized translations : NIV , NASB , NAB , KJV , Young 's Literal , and Worldwide English . In attachment to the burial cloth of Jesus , here is the cases that I found :   NAB : no circumstancess found of the term `` napkin . ''  NIV : no-one found  NASB : no-one found  KJV : Only in John 20:6-8  Young 's Literal : Only in John 20:6- 8   The Amplified Bible says `` kerchief '' rather than `` napkin , '' but once again , solely in John 's accounting . The same with the American Standard and the 20-first century KJV .   So the translation of Bible usage had an impact . It 's also interested to notices that it is only John 's accounting that makes mention of this . The three synoptic Gospels ( Matthew , Mark , and Luke ) make no reference of this . So , we use redaction criticism . Of the four Gospels , Mark is the oldest . Matthew and Luke both utilized Mark as a resource , as well as an unknown source reported solely as Q . Then there exists source M , which is material found solely in Matthew but not in Mark or Luke , and thereforeurce L , which is material found solely in Luke but not in Matthew or Mark . Since John 's the newest , it is very likely to be the least exact , and Mark , being the oldest , the most exact . The three synoptic gospels also fit more of the criteria established forth by historical researchers than John does .   So , using redaction criticism levelled I believe it 's safe to rule that it 's feasible there used no napkin , and that John wrote making mention of practices that were current to itself , but not to Christ , or perhaps that he 's making mention of `` standards ''s practices - but this is more than feasible that Christ did not have a standards funeral . After all , he ha to be burried swiftly , as the Sabbath was swiftly approaching .   Further , the Shroud has been heavily studied . There is no painting on the Shroud . It is a negative image that are not able have being drawn up by any technique known to entertainers in the Middle Ages , in particular with real blood . Serum 's something else that discovered to on the Shroud . Serum is the clear-cut , watery part of blood . No mediaeval counterfeiter would have known to make persuaded that real blood 's used to guarantee serum would be discovered in subsequent tests . There 's all true blood . Also , a mediaeval counterfeiter would have placed the nails in the palms of the hands , as was common in crucifixes of the time , not in the wrists . Also , the hair styling 's what was common for young mens at the times of Christ .   Someone else point out that having an ecclesiastical overseer for any tests would means that any publish outcome would have to be fulfilled with the Church 's approval . Their implicature is that the Church would not enable any outcome to be issued that would demonstrating the Shroud a fake . This are only not so . What it really , meant that the person oversee the tests , speaking on behalf of the Holy See would be making persuaded that the Shroud is manipulated with reverence throughout the testing process . Reverence is due the Shroud , after everyone , not solely as a sacred object but also as an historicalal object . Even if the Shroud of Turin IS a mediaeval counterfeiting , even an atheistic would have should be approved that it 's of enormous historical interest .   Even if there 's an ecclesiastical overseer , that would make no variance as to whether to Shroud of Turin 's all true or fake when everything they 're was endeavouring to do is make persuaded that the Shroud 're not too badly harmed and that the scientific process be suitablely followed without any partiality . At least one of the scientists who were involvedd in the carbon dating confessed to having partiality as he did the testing soon prior to his death . It is strange that the notion of an ecclesiastical overseer would to utilise as an objection to the Shroud 's genuineness , as well as the notion of the Vatiwere not able wanna the Shroud tested at this point . It 's solely reasonable . After everything , the Shroud is in a delicate state . At any event , it would be challenging to find an uncontaminated sampling , at this moment in time , because a preservative made from plant material has utilized , upon it .   That just said , I am all for retesting if they were able find a spot that would not damage the Shroud too badly and 're not polluted 

Q: Since the Shroud of Turin is proving to be the burial cloth of Christ, will atheists burn in hell or repent?
A: Is it a verifiable item or something beyond the borders of logical and reason ?   Will this is transmitted to unbiased historical consideration as far as the cloth himself from its manufacture/date of weaving ?   Is it a work of art or a piece of `` forensic evidence '' of somebody is death shroud/wrapping ? 

Q: The Shroud of Turin is proving to be the burial cloth of Christ, doesn't this prove Jesus rose from the dead?
A: Is your third or 4th post on this so far today ?   As we 've already pointed out , all the accessible evidence indicates it is a 13th or 4teenth century fake . There is little evidence at everything that it is any older than that - solely conjecture .   But even though it 's about 2,thousand years old it would n't demonstrate that it 's the shroud of any particular individual .   But even though you did somehow manages to demonstrate that Jesus was a real person ( there exists totally NO primary historical source evidencing this ) you 'd still have to demonstrate the shroud 's his .   Even subsequently , it would n't demonstrate that he 's the son of god or that he been killed and was revived .   I did not know how numerous times we have 'm saying this prior to you 'll listen .
