Shroud of Turin

You have likely heard about, or perhaps even seen, the Shroud of Turin.

It is a 14 foot linen cloth with the with the imprint of a man on it.

This individual has nail wounds at the wrist and bleeding sites on his brow consistent with marks from a crown of thorns.

Many folks believe that these findings are consistent with the Shroud being the burial cloth of Christ.

Others say 'no' because previous carbon dating has shown it to be from the Middle Ages.

But, guess what?

New carbon dating tests have been done and show the cloth to date between 300 BC and 400 AD.

This definitely would put it in the Time of Christ.
