Photo of JESUS
Taken from a negative on his burial cloth
This Jesus photo is taken from a negative image formed on his burial cloth known as The ‘Shroud of Turin’ or the ‘Holy Shroud’. The Shroud of Turin or the Holy Shroud is a long piece of linen cloth, believed by millions to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ. The cloth is 1.1 Meter wide and 4.4 Meters long (3.6 x 14.4 feet). A picture of the Holy Shroud is seen below stretched out to its full length. This ancient linen cloth, yellowed with age, bears a very faint image of the frontal and back view of a human being. The painting below shows how Jesus was buried using a burial cloth, as was the Jewish custom in those ancient days. This explains the formation of images with frontal and back views in the two halves of the cloth. The holy Shroud has been preserved with utmost care in the Royal Chapel of the ex-kings of Italy in the city of Turin, Italy from the year 1578 onwards. Since the holy Shroud is preserved and kept in the Royal Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, Italy, it is commonly referred to as the 'Shroud of Turin' or the 'Turin Shroud'.
Before the year 1578 historical facts traces this cloth back to France, then to Constantinople (now renamed as ‘Istanbul’), then back to the city of Edessa (now ‘Urfa’ in Turkey) where the Shroud was found hidden in a wall in about the year 525 AD, before this several historical documents point to The Holy Shroud being given to King Abgar of Edessa (an independent kingdom aligned with the Kingdom of Parthia during the time of Jesus) by the Apostles of Jesus - St. Thomas and the newly appointed appostle, Thaddaeus (Addai)
