Shroud of turin carbon 14 dating statistics dating age 16
There is now a mountain of evidence about the Shroud, but too many dismiss the possibility of the Shroud’s authenticity based on the Carbon-14 dating alone.
The image was seared on the linen after the bloodstains.
The fact that the bloodstains retain their reddish colour is evidence that the blood came from a person under extreme duress.
An exact copy of the Shroud of Turin, the linen cloth that wrapped the body of Jesus Christ, is displayed at the chapel of the Cahtholic Armenian patriarch's residence in an east Beirut neighbourhood (JOSEPH EID/AFP/Getty Images) A verse in the epistle to the Hebrews asserts that faith is “the substance of things hoped for – the evidence of things not seen.” The resurrection of Jesus Christ is an event forever hoped for, but it is also an event unseen.
Believers in the Shroud of Turin, however, insist that the Shroud is the substance of this hope and the evidence of this unseen event.
In addition, traces of the spices used for Jewish burial have been discovered. The bloodstains on the Shroud are real human blood, not paint.
