Jesus Shroud Found In Jersusalem’s Field of Blood

turin-shroudWHAT are the odds that researcher from the Hebrew University and institutions various should in the run up to Christmas find pieces of a burial shroud from the time of Jesus in a tomb in Jerusalem?

A body of a man from the time of Jesus is found in the Field of Blood cemetery. Who could it be? Well, the BBC’s report includes the news that it’s where Judas Iscariot is said to have committed suicide. This man, however, died of leprosy.

The shroud is detailed as a simple two-way weave, lighter and more on-trend than the complex weave of the fabled Turin Shroud.

The researchers believe that the fragments are typical of the burial cloths used at the time of Jesus. As a result, they conclude that the Turin Shroud did not originate from 1st-Century Jerusalem.

Unless it did and Jesus went for haute couture? Expect to discover more in the days leading up to Easter…
