Do you see the image of the man on the cloth above? This might make it a little easier.
Is this the face of Jesus?
The Shroud of Turin is a centuries old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. A man that millions believe to be Jesus of Nazareth. Is it really the cloth that wrapped his crucified body, or is it simply a medieval forgery, a hoax perpetrated by some clever artist? Modern science has completed hundreds of thousands of hours of detailed study and intense research on the Shroud. It is, in fact, the single most studied artifact in human history, and we know more about it today than we ever have before. And yet, the controversy still rages.
Come listen to the lead researcher on the Shroud Team that has spent countless hours and research studying this artifact, Dr. John Jackson, and his wife, Rebecca. Dr. Jackson has appeared on CNN, the History Channel, and many other media outlets. He has traveled the world extensively to give presentations at scientific conferences and other venues. We are blessed to welcome Dr. Jackson and Rebecca at Saint Timothy’s on Tuesday, March 8th at 7:00 PM for a presentation on the scientific research and then again on Wednesday, March 9th at 7:00 PM for a presentation on what the shroud has to tell us spiritually. You won’t want to miss these presentations of by these internationally known speakers. Dr. Jackson’s background is included below. We hope to see you there.
