Easter & Shroud of Turin: ‘Nothing Is Impossible with God’ | National Review

That the burial cloth of Jesus is still extant, lying in an underground vault in northwestern Italy, is astonishing. More so is that Jesus rose from the dead. Now add the further wonder that is the Shroud, which, if many of those who have studied closely are correct, is an image of Jesus at the moment of his resurrection.


Well, this is all very strange.

I have no idea what exactly happened after Jesus died on the cross. The resurrection idea was not foreign to the Judaism of the time (unlike the preposterous nativity narratives, as unjudaic pieces of tosh as I can imagine). But I'm confident that taking seriously some medieval fraud about a shroud in Turin is a sign of ... I dunno, gullibility? Dishonesty? Lunacy?
