New Show on the Shroud Tonight!

There are two shows on the Shroud of Turin. One, that I caught parts of was aired on the Nat Geo channel last night. The other will be aired on the History channel and I would wager that the later is the show to watch, here’s why. Nat Geo has an ax to grind and it is this. They don’t believe in anything supernatural! I recently had a conversation with a friend who objected to my calling the Bible, The Guidebook to the Supernatural. Supernatural is a relatively modern word, it appeared in the 15th century and here’s what it means.


Etymology: Middle English, from Medieval Latin supernaturalis, from Latin super- + natura nature
Date: 15th century
1 : of or relating to an order of existence beyond the visible observable universe; especially : of or relating to God or a god, demigod, spirit, or devil
2 a : departing from what is usual or normal especially so as to appear to transcend the laws of nature b : attributed to an invisible agent (as a ghost or spirit)

So that being established, it would appear that my coining the Bible as, The Guidebook to the Supernatural is both accurate and points to what is found throughout the pages of the book. Certainly we can agree that a burning bush, the Red Sea parting, water gushing from a rock after it had been struck, walking on water, calming a storm, curing lepers, are beyond an order of existence beyond the visible observable universe;
thus supernatural! The Nat Geo show refuses to enter into that arena. They had their resident skeptic, Joe Nickel going on about how he was able to reproduce an image on a cloth. However the show never discussed any of he attributes that make the Shroud unique and the image that Nickel produced didn’t appear to be anything like the image on the Shroud. The National Geographic channel are hard-core Darwinist. They adhere to the empirical, what they can observe with the 5 human senses and repeat in a lab. Thus, they ignore the astounding properties that are found on the Shroud and instead focus on a possibility that Leonardo Da Vinci created it. When Shroud researcher and S.T.U.R.P. team member Barrie Schwortz appeared on Acceleration Radio last week, this was one of the many points that we discussed. The Shroud first appeared a century before the birth of Da Vinci, so unless Leonardo had a time machine he couldn’t have possibly been involved in the creation of the Shroud and the so-called hoax. Nat Geo then made a fuss over the carbon dating and to their credit they at least mentioned the recent discovery that the sample that was taken might have been skewed. Tonight there is another show on the Shroud and we will see Barrie Schwortz interviewed on this show. I am hopeful that we will see some good reporting. Thanks to Barrie Schwortz and his web site for the info!

“Touched by Jesus” will air on the National Geographic Channel on Monday, March 29th. I have no details about this program but here is the overview from their website: “Faith, by definition, means belief without proof. But what if science could shed light on some of Christianity’s greatest mysteries? Using laboratory blood tests, fiber analysis and carbon dating, we’ll put three controversial claims about Jesus to the test. Can true believers experience his suffering through spontaneous stigmata? Was the Shroud of Turin the actual cloth in which Jesus was buried? Did Jesus marry and have children?” Here is a link to more information: I do not have the airtime for this program, so check your local listings for times in your area.
“The Real Face of Jesus?” will air on the History Channel on Tuesday, March 30th, from 9:00 to 11:00 pm, Eastern time. It airs again on Saturday, April 3rd, from 8:00 to 10:00 pm, Eastern time. This may well be the first two hour television documentary ever made about the Shroud of Turin, so the producers have more screen time to develop their story and provide us with more in-depth information. As a participant myself, I had the opportunity to meet and work with the people who made the program and felt they were sincere and professional. Again, check your local listings for times in your area. There is a lot more information about this show available online so I am providing a list links:

Don’t miss Acceleration Radio tomorrow night as I will feature He Is Risen without commercial interruption. This is a fully orchestrated, passionate, and intense,  musical interpretation of the passion of the Christ.

  1. Here is a link to the History channel documentary of a UFO flap and attack in Colares, Brazil. Please pray for Brazil as ufo activity is increasing there sometimes with
    deadly fatalities.

    During the months of September through December 1977, the Brazillian Air-Force under the command of a Captain Uyrangê Hollanda, was sent to the island of Colares to investigate a series of incidents in which over 80 people reported being attacked by beams of light from UFO’s, paralyzing two of them and leaving puncture and burn marks on their skin. The investigation was codenamed “Operation Saucer”. This operation collated over 15 hours of film, 500 photos, and hundreds of documents with detailed drawings and interviews with over 3000 witness’. The files were to remain classified by the Brazillian Government until 1997, when UFO investigator’s A J Gevaerd and Marco Petite of UFO Magazine were allowed partial access. They were also contacted by the then retired Cpt Hollanda who gave them a vivid recollection of the whole series of events.

  2. Here is more documentation on what happen on the island of Colares:

    Colares 1977:

    In 1977, the Brazilian island of Colares was visited by flying objects of an unknown nature. Nearly all kinds of UFOs were seen, some big, some small, saucer shaped, cigar shaped, luminous or not, They arrived from the North every day, from the sky and also sometimes from underwater, and it lasted for months. Regularly, some Island’s inhabitants were targeted by the objects, sending strange rays to them, and many were badly hurt. The Army intervenes, the press follows. 35 people were hurt by the strange rays, and all the civilian finally left the island. You have never heard of such a thing before? Well read ahead then.

    • I forgot what this is…I think it is an automated post, but I forget what the reason for or why this happens. I’ve heard of this before. I know I’m not explaining this well…but I don’t think a person actually just typed this above- I think it is automated.

    • Matt,

      There may not be anything supernatural about this news…yet. I personally believe it very possible that some of the End Time descriptions of creatures that John gave in the book of The Revelation could very well end up coming from our Ocean’s depths.

      Think about it for a sec. We haven’t explored 95% of the Ocean waters that cover the earth. We have NO clue what is DEEP down in the bowels of the earth that could very easily come up through volcanic vents, especially when God’s wrath is poured out on this unbelieving world. So, your link might not be that far off the mark IMHO.

      Just sayin’

      In Him,


  3. I saw the program and am fasinated. I think this may be true. My comment is how may someone obtain a picture that was portrayed of him. Will you be setting up a way to print the picture from the internet? I most certainly plan to watch the upcoming program hopefully to obtain more information.

    • A word of caution, dear La Juana…place no adoration in the picture for that gets a little too close to idolatry. Instead, place faith and trust in Him alone:^D
      In His service,

  4. I think the shroud is a fake……check up on how the cloth was found when the women and the disciples found it…check out the true way they buried and dressed the body, way back in those days….people are now getting to think they should worship the shroud and there was no word about Jesus, not good at all!

    • The Shroud of Turin” – Proven a Fake Abomination

      The Bible confirms the well-known history of the era when Christ Jesus lived to demonstrate that the Shroud of Turin is a fake, a fraud and an imposter.

      II Timothy 2:15: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

      The King James Bible (KJV) states quite clearly that after the crucifixion the body of the Lord Jesus Christ was wrapped with strips of linen cloth that were coated with a mixture of myrrh and aloes (as that was the Jewish burial custom). See: John 19:39-40: “And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight. Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.”

      Biblical Usages/Context: “The linen clothes” is translated form the word othonion (Strong’s G3608) which means:
      1) a piece of linen, small linen cloth, or 2) strips of linen cloth for swathing the dead.

      Luke 24:12: “Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.

      John 19:40: “Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.

      John 20:5: “And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.”
      John 20:6: “Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie…”

      Now all these verses are in reference to the Lord Jesus Christ and they all translate the term “the linen clothes” the same way for the word: othonion (Strong’s G3608) which means:

      1) a piece of linen, small linen cloth, or 2) strips of linen cloth for swathing the dead

      And, that His head was separately covered with what the KJV terms as a napkin. In reference to Jesus Christ see–John 20:7: “And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.” “Napkin” is translated from the word soudarion (Strong’s G4676) which means: 1) a handkerchief, or 2) a cloth for wiping perspiration from the face and for cleaning the nose and also used in swathing the head of a corpse.

      John 11:44: “And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

      This burial preparation method was, at the time of Christ Jesus, was “the manner of the Jews” mentioned in the Bible verses above. This Hebrew burial-preparation method has no similarity with the Shroud of Turin at all.

      The two burial preparation methods are so very different as to be worlds apart, easily proving the Shroud of Turin a fake!

      Within 3 days, the mixture of myrrh and aloes dries rock-hard, like shellac, producing an exceedingly stiff and solid cocoon.

      All this was the burial “custom of the Jews” in the time of Christ Jesus.

      There is no way a purported burial covering like the Shroud of Turin could qualify as Christ Jesus’ actual burial clothing.

      The Shroud of Turin is more like a curtain or a double-length bed sheet, which seems to have covered a body front and rear, from head to toes, all in one piece without bindings, wrapping or winding.

      And, the Shroud of Turin was never saturated with a mixture of myrrh and aloes. For had it been, it would today be as stiff, brittle and inflexible as a piece of wall paneling.

      Instead, today’s Shroud of Turin is as soft and flexible as any cloth should be, and today the shroud is able to be folded and unfolded without breaking into pieces like a crisp Saltine cracker.

      When presented as the actual burial cloth of Christ Jesus, the “Shroud of Turin” is easily revealed as a fake and a fraud.

      One other point: Ask yourself does the image (visage) in the (Shroud of Turin) look more marred than any man. Jesus Christ had been brutally beaten to the point of being unrecognizable but the person pictured in the “Shroud of Turin” above is perfectly recognizable and does not look as if he had endured any beatings.

      Isa 52:14: “As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man,”

      See below for confirmation:

      Isaiah 50:6: “I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.”

      Isaiah 53:5: “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

      Matthew 26:67: “Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote [him] with the palms of their hands,”

      Matthew 27:29: “And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!”

      Mat 27:30 “And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.”

      Luke 22:64: “And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?”

      I think L.A. has the alien thing right, but is dead wrong concerning the shroud. As far as the “negative” being a “positive”, it is just another “lying sign and wonder”.

      You are deceived L.A.

    • Thanks for your post. Did you see the HIstory Channel’s presentation on the Shroud, The Face of Jesus? I would suggest you start there. Every one of your points that you brought up has been dealt with by others, who prove you wrong. The Shroud lay untouched for almost 2000 years. It was only after it was photographed by Secondo Pia at the turn of the 20 century that the anomalies were noted. I would suggest you do some homework. L.A.

    • I did my homework. I looked at what the BIBLE says about the burial, not the history channel. You are doing your homework in the wrong place, with all due respect. This is not about “others proving me wrong”, it is about what the bible says, which cannot be proven wrong. Lying signs and wonders are not just in the skies.

  5. Benjamin Creme is very adamant about the authenticity of the Shroud. In fact, Creme has repeatedly stated that the Shroud of Turin is authentic and has featured evidence supporting the authenticity of the Shroud in his magazine. For instance,

    * Creme defended the authenticity of the Shroud in his book The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom (Page 95) and in an April 2004 press release.

    * The October 2006 edition of Share International Magazine has a long article that tried to discredit the radiocarbon dating process and tried to bolster the scientific methods used by a variety of scientists who concluded the Shroud came from the 1st Century AD.[5]

    * The March 2010 edition of Share International Magazine featured an article about Dr. Frale’s work to defend the authenticity of the Shroud. Creme’s Ascended Master “confirmed” that the text discovered by Dr. Frale is legitimate and “proves” that the shroud was Jesus’s burial shroud.[6]
    Creme characterizes the Shroud as another miracle that will help bring on the emergence of Maitreya.[7] More specifically, Creme teaches that the Shroud is going to play a very important role in the future. Creme teaches the following (blasphemous) things about the Shroud:

    * The image on the Shroud was created when Maitreya resurrected Jesus from the dead using a tremendous amount of spiritual energy.[8]

    * The image of Jesus’s face was deliberately left on the Shroud to serve as evidence of Jesus’s resurrection.[9]

    * The Shroud demonstrates that people have misunderstood the crucifixion process. The crucifixion process involved the victim getting nails driven through their wrists and ankles instead of through their hands and feet.[10]
    In my humble opinion…if Creme says it’s authentic… isn’t!
