More evidence that verifies the Shroud of Turin

And, yes, skeptics, they do explain the process.

And, again, it falls in the category of, “How would an alleged Medieval forger have known this??”

1.  In 1978, letters were found around the face area of the Shroud of Turin

2.  Shroud researcher Barbara Frale has made a career of figuring them out.

3.  The letters say “Jesus the Nazorean” in Greek, Hebrew and Latin.

4.  Frale wanted to know *why* the letters were there.  She did a great deal of research and found out that, when executed criminals were buried under Roman law, they had to be buried in Mass graves.  In Roman-controlled Palestine, families were allowed to have the bodies back after one year, so the bodies were identified with papyrus strips.  Scripture tells us that Joseph of Arimathea buried Jesus in *his* family tomb, versus a mass grave, (to make it easier to identify Jesus’ body a year later when the body was returned to the family).

The kind of ink used on these strips of paper would have chemically bonded with the shroud cloth over time.

5.  She sent copies of the letters to various ancient language experts, to verify the dating of the style of script.  She did not tell these experts what the letters came from.   They all confirmed the style of script dated to 30 AD.
