Acceleration Radio: Shroud of Turin expert – Barrie Schwortz

Tonight on acceleration Radio I am extremely pleased to announce the appearance of researcher and S.T.U.R.P. member Barrie M. Schwortz.

If you have doubts about the authenticity of the Shroud you won’t want to miss this show.

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. This web site will keep you abreast of current research, provide you with accurate data from the previous research and let you interact with the researchers themselves. We believe that if you have access to the facts, you can make up your own mind about the Shroud. Make sure you visit the page where you can Examine the Shroud of Turin for yourself. We hope you enjoy your visit.

  1. Dr. Lynn,

    I have to admit my fascination with the Shroud began when I saw that face in a mall in East Texas way back in the mid ’70’s. It stopped me dead in my tracks. I was around 11 or 12 years old when I came across it. I stood there in awe for probably half an hour looking at it…studying it.

    I find it totally amazing that someone from the MIDDLE AGES would have the knowledge, complexity, skill and resources to pull off one of if not the greatest hoaxes in history when only in the 21st century are we even now BARELY able to just begin to understand how someone might be able to create such a forgery…and this with all our sophisticated computer graphics no less. I wonder who had digital imaging in Italy in the 15th Century?

    I remember watching a documentary on the History Channel many years ago and one of the researchers in charge of proving it being real or fake was in tears proclaiming this was indeed the image of a man who had to be Christ Jesus the Lord because it was impossible to make such a detailed forgery from that time period. He went in a skeptic and came out a believer. AMEN!

    It is a great topic and one that will never cease to cause controversy this is for certain. Thanks for sharing it.

    In Christ,


  2. For the past two days, Dr. Larry Spargimino of Southwest Radio Chruch Ministries has been presenting evidence (on the SWRC daily webcast) found by Dr. Bucklin, a forensic pathologist, regarding the Shroud of Turin. His information is absolutely amazing! I found a website with the information that Dr. Spargimino is relating. The website is:

  3. “Possible new human ancestor found in Siberia”

    “looked something like humans but really quite different.”

    “It really just looked like something we had never seen before,”

    The best part was this “The sequence indicates the hominin’s line diverged about a million years ago from the line that gave rise to both humans and Neanderthals and that split about 500,000 years ago.”

    There must be a nephilim in their somewhere or an attempt to say that we have always had something different among us and if it was okay then, it must be okay now. Right?

  4. It wasn’t too many weeks ago when you ran stories on the apparitions of Mary that you found it necessary to “test the spirits” because you did not believe that these “sightings” were of God (I do not believe they were of God either).

    Now may be a good time to do the same with this Not-of-God shroud business. No place in Scripture does it ever even hint that God left or would leave such “evidence” as some sort of “proof” that His Son existed. Quite the opposite, the evidence is the faith that He gives us at salvation. NOT some apparition of a Mary purporting to be the “Mother” of God, NOT some piece of cloth supposedly engraved with the image of my Savior, Jesus Christ. There are multiple verses that deal with this issue that I am sure you are familar with so why chase this wild rabbit that will NEVER glorify Jesus Christ?

    • Darrel – You don’t know what you don’t know. I’m not worshipping the Shroud or telling anyone else too. I’m saying that it may be the calling card of God. it may be forensic evidence of the most important event in History, the Resurrection! That being said, I will read your post to Barrie tonight and we’ll see what his response is. May I suggest you listen to the interview or if you can’t I’ll send you DVD on the Shroud that will blow your mind. For you free, everyone else must buy it! L.A.

  5. L A,
    In light of Matt.24:23&24 I would submit a question: Has the knowledge of, or the viewing of, or the touching of this shroud ever caused anyone to repent of their sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ unto salvation? God’s exclusive Agent on this earth is the Holy Spirit Who takes the Word of God and uses it to reveal a man’s heart to himself.

    You are doing a good thing by exposing the alien gospel for what it is – another gospel. My fear is that the deceptive one is leading down the wrong path to deter you from the real Gospel of Jesus Christ. I pray that it will not be so.

    • I study and enjoy reading about Bigfoot sightings….is that the deceptive one leading me down the wrong path? No, it not. It’s a hobby…. (A hobby is an activity or interest that is undertaken for pleasure or relaxation, often in one’s spare time)

      Now if I were to study the occult or new age movement which is clearly against The Lord’s wishes then it would perhaps be leading me down the wrong path.

      LA has an interest in the shroud along with 1000s of scientists and laymen. The shroud itself is a historic piece some believe to be from biblical times, thus the curiosity and reason to study the burial cloth. I have never heard LA mention he puts faith in the cloth itself, only that it could POSSIBLY be the burial cloth of Christ.
      This is a far cry from worshiping and praising an entity or false prophet, the two are not even related in the slightest.

  6. U.S. Softens Iran Sanction Plan
    The U.S. has backed away from pursuing a number of tough measures against Iran in order to win support from Russia and China for a new U.N. Security Council resolution on sanctions.

    What is going on? US hardens against Israel, but then softens on Iran…..Im not a gambling man, but looks like the cards are being stacked against Israel. I think we know where Obama’s allegiance lies.

  7. LA,

    I have watched the documentary you recommend. The evidence is compelling that the shroud is real. It does not, however, prove that it is the burial cloth of Yeshua.

    The one niggle that I cannot get past (amongst a few other niggles about the shroud) is:

    Yeshua was from Nazareth. Being from Nazareth does NOT equate to having taken the Nazarite vow, which would require He grow his hair long. Study of various other scriptures, reveal that men are to keep their hair short. I do not believe Yeshua took the Nazarite vow, as this is not found ANYwhere in scripture. Therefore, He would have had short hair as all other Jews in His days here on earth.

    The shroud depicts a crucified man, with longish hair.

    This is only ONE point that niggles me. But one worth considering. Before you or any other convinced-person dismisses this – please study the Nazarite vow and find out if Yeshua took the vow or not.

    One last thing to consider:
    We KNOW satan and his minions will do all sorts of things to create deceptions and diversions. It is definitely possibly that he is the one behind the shroud, knowing it will appeal to some people who desire to SEE some proof. We believe on Yeshua by FAITH – not seeing – but by the Grace of YHWH through the gift of Faith He has placed in our hearts.

    It also bothers me that there is NO hint anywhere in scripture that YHWH would leave a physical ‘calling card’. In fact, this would work against the above point of the gift of Faith He gives us in our hearts – that we believe while NOT seeing any proof.

    I read your blog and have managed to listen to a few of your archived shows, and I consider the topics – and test all things through scripture. Just remember we all see through a glass darkly.

    In Yeshua,

    • One other thing that REALLY niggles me.

      No one knows what Yeshua looks like.
      Isaiah prophesied that He would be uncomely IN APPEARANCE – in other words, not particularly anything handsome to look at. Plain, average looking.

      Stop and reason this through.
      The image on the shroud looks JUST like those pictures of supposed-Yeshua that many hang in their homes.

      From my research – many don’t give a second thought to the fact that we don’t really know what He looked like. And those people will possibly fall for some man who comes, claiming to be Him, *because* he looks like the image that’s been floated around in ‘art’ for centuries. Some of my research purports the image to be of an ascended master named Sananda.

      The image that has been floated for centuries in the Orthodox churches and the Catholic church, which some claim to be of the ascended master, Sananda —– looks identical to the image on the shroud.

      That alone makes me suspicious, indeed.

  8. I heard about the shroud some time ago but I never really put much importance on it either way. I love God, God loves me and I have faith in what the bible says no matter the amount or lack thereof physical proof. It dosent affect me either way. I’m sure Lynn feels the same way he is just interested in it. Any Christian that has their faith hinged on whether this cloth is real or not dosent know what it means to be a Christian IMO. I would say Mr. Marzulli spends way too much time and effort tryin to inform people and spread the word to be one of those.
