WH-20 Thirty-five Years of Shroud Science: A Personal and Scientific Perspective

The Shroud is the burial cloth that wrapped Jesus in His tomb. It shows the front and back of a whipped and crucified man, exactly as shown in the Gospels. Discovered centuries later, it is wrapped in mystery and controversy now. The question remains ...is it authentic, or a medieval forgery? The Shroud is now the most studied religious artifact in history. An expert on photographic imaging and the official documenting photographer from the original 1978 team Shroud that performed the most comprehensive scientific analysis on the Shroud, Barrie shares only the peer-reviewed scientific evidence that convinces him, a Jewish man, that the Shroud is authentic. Come and judge for yourself.
