The face of Jesus?Posted Wednesday, March 31, 2010, at 7:09 AM
The Shroud of Turin
Some graphic experts have taken the much controversial Shroud of Turin and used it to create a 3-D who they believe to be Jesus Christ. A show, which will air soon, will show a 3-D rendering of what they believe Jesus (assuming that's who was in the shroud) would have looked like.
While there have been questions for centuries surrounding what some believe to be the burial cloth that covered Jesus after his crucifixion, I've never really decided how I feel about it. In my heart I would like for it to be real, well basically because it would be awesome to have that kind of physical evidence around.
If it's not, oh well, I just thought this was an interesting story with some interesting photos. Take from it what you wish.
What are your thoughts on the shroud?
Update!!! 3-31-10 7 a.m.
Ok...so the show aired last night. I was only able to watch about half of it, but what I saw was wuite interesting. Did anyone else watch? If so, what did you think?
I know the general consensus seems to be that the image doesn't resemble the popular images we have seen over the years.
I did record the midnight replay on my DVR so I can hopefully watch the rest later this week.
