John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

The Authenticity of the Shroud of Turn: New Evidence

Recommended Posts

There is mind-boggling new evidence for the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin that refutes the alleged carbon-!4 dating to the Middle Ages:

In current scientific thinking, the best explanation of how the image got on the Shroud is radiation energy other than heat and fire! The energy unleashed by Jesus' bodily resurrection?

The shroud doesn't fit the Bible's description of what Jesus was buried in.

 

And stooping to look in, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there, and the face cloth, which had been on Jesus' head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded up in a place by itself. (John 20:5-7 ESV)

 

Jesus was wrapped in cloths with a separate cloth covering his face, not in a single garment which covered his whole body.

The problem with the shroud of Turin, is John say there was a separate napkin around the head of Jesus. Jn 20: 6--7.

A powerful scientific case has been made that the same crucified body was covered by both the face cloth (Greek: "soudariion"--John 20:6-7) preserved at Oviedo in Spain and the Shroud of Turin. For example, consider these 2 impressive facts: (1) The blood type on the Shroud of Turin is the same as the blood tyoe found on Jesus' face cloth, AB. Only 3% of humanity have this rare blood type. (2) The blood spatter on the face cloth seems to be the same as that on Jesus' face on the Shroud of Turin. So the scientists studying the soudarion have concluded the both the Turin Shroud and the Oviedo face cloth once wrapped the same corpse! For an impressive video on this issue, see:

There is no hard evidence that can link the Shroud of Turin and\or the Oviedo face cloth to Jesus. NONE! It does not exist. However it does surprise me while the Spirit was giving you all those gifts of knowledge and premonitions, the Spirit forgot to inform you on this matter.

Another problem is that the Shroud proponents admit that its authenticity is dependent upon the body not being washed. This is important for two reasons:

 

(1) The Shroud is supposed to contain dried blood. This alleged appearance of dried blood on the Shroud would suggest that the body was not washed.

 

(2) Those who support the authenticity of the Shroud claim there is the need for morbid sweat to act as a refraction lens to focus the radiation, radiation that is supposed to have come from the risen body, to create the image on the cloth. This also would imply that the body was not washed (cf. McDowell, p. 166).

 

It is claimed by proponents of the Shroud that there was not time to wash the body clean with water because of the approaching Sabbath. But this is a weak argument because the Scripture says they still had time to anoint the body with over a hundred pounds of spices. And, in order to anoint the body with the spices, the body, according to Jewish custom, had to be washed.

 

Further support for this is the fact that a body could indeed be washed and anointed on the Sabbath according to Jewish law.

 

“John would not and could not have said that the Jewish method of burial had been followed if it hadn’t been washed” (McDowell, p. 167).

All very good points.
