Once again the Shroud of Turin is in the news, after some Italian scientists claim it may be the real deal.
The Shroud of Turin is a fake, and one must only refer to the Bible to know this.
Luke 24:12: But Peter arose and ran to the tomb, and stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying by themselves;
John 20:6-7: Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, and the handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded together and placed by itself.
Notice that in both instances the linens used to cover Jesus' body are discussed in the plural. In other words, there was no single shroud used to cover Jesus because it was more than one linen. In John, the verse goes so far as to indicate that the "handkerchief" used to cover Jesus' head was separate from the other linens. Yet, the Shroud of Turin is a single garment. The Shroud of Turin could not be authentic, for it is not consistent with the Gospels.
