Shroud authentic? – JAM

Is the Shroud of Turin the real thing or an elaborate fraud? The Shroud is the most famous holy relic of the Catholic Church and it is being put on display for the first time since 2000. The authenticity of the cloth that is claimed to be Jesus’ burial shroud, has been questioned through the centuries. A Carbon 14 dating of the fabric in 1988 concluded that the Shroud was a fake, very old but nothing close to the death of Jesus. However, critics say the test was processed carelessly and thus contaminated. I have questions because the image on the cloth does not conform to customary Jewish burial practice. But authentic or fake, my faith does not depend on a piece of fabric in Turin, Italy. My faith is based on eyewitness testimony of those who knew Jesus personally.
