Death Certificate Found on the Shroud

Death Certificate Found on the Shroud of Turin

If this is the truth, it is another amazing breakthrough on the Quest for the Historical Yahshua the Nazorean.

There is new research on the Shroud of Turin, the sheet that held the crucified body of Messiah.  This piece of linen has been perhaps the most controversial cloth of all time, with the Roman Catholic Church claiming its authenticity as scholars and non-religious lurkers find any way they possibly can to prove the shroud a forgery.  There’s not space or time to get into the controversy here, but suffice it to say that, having watched all these things closely for many years, there has been no proof that it is not exactly what the RCC says it is.

But now there may be proof of the Shroud’s authenticity. In the first century, a crucified person bound for a tomb was wrapped in a shroud.  The corpse’s identity and destination was written on a piece of cloth (the death certificate) and glued to the shroud, usually on the face. Dr. Barbara Frale, a Vatican scientist, has discovered the bleeding over of the ink from the death certificate onto the shroud – enough so to not only reconstruct the death certificate itself, but also to ‘prove’ that this was not an inscription forged years later.

Here is Dr. Frale’s reconstruction of the Shroud’s occupant’s death certificate:

“In the year 16 of the reign of the Emperor Tiberius (30 AD) Yahshua the Nazorean, taken down in the early evening after having been condemned to death by a Roman judge because he was found guilty by a Hebrew authority, is hereby sent for burial with the obligation of being consigned to his family only after one full year.”

The reconstruction is from the three languages written on the death certificate, the ink of which bled over into the Shroud.  The three languages?  Latin, Hebrew, and Greek.

So what ‘proves’ this not to be a medieval addition to the Shroud?

He is not referred to as CHRIST, but as “The Nazorean.”

And isn’t the Quest for the Nazorean the subject of all my mails to you?

The Truth of Islam

Last Sabbath the Convocation featured “Ed,” the founder of The Truth of Islam ministry on the web at http://thetruthofislam.com/.  Ed’s ministry site is very easy to navigate – and that’s important for those who want a quick overview.  You can go there now and see that much of his ministry is made up of “webisodes,” audio-visual presentations of 10 minutes each or less, filmed in the Middle East.  Obviously, the focus of the ministry is teaching the truth to Muslims, and we received a thorough and entertaining presentation on the strange holy book of Islam, the Quran (Koran to some of you oldsters).  The presentations are not judgmental nor are they overtly Evangelical.  They simply take the hot-button issues of (especially) young Muslims and explain them from a logical, biblical perspective.  (After all, these youth are planning their future in accordance with a book that is full of hatred and lost, dynastic dreams.)

Ed receives thousands of emails from all over the Muslim world, but the majority are from Indonesia and Malaysia.  Indonesia has the world’s largest population of Muslims, 200 million is a very conservative estimate.  The presentation and training we received was timely in that we as a nation have again endured recent terrorist attacks in the name of “Allah Akbar.” For those of you who still believe that Allah and Yahweh are the same, and that we worship the same deity as that of the Arabs, http://thetruthofislam.com/ is a great place for you to quickly learn why this is not the case.

“Ed” (not his real name for obvious reasons) may be contacted through his site, and is available for programs and seminars.

Joseph Coins of Egypt Rediscovered

Another incredible archaeological find, this one yet tentative, is the discovery of Egyptian coins with the name and face of Joseph of Genesis 39 fame, the guy of the “technicolor dream coat” who was, according to the Scripture, the ruler of Egypt under a Pharaoh. Historians are ever using the Genesis 39 story to disprove the historical validity of the Scripture, saying there was never any such person as Joseph in the annals of Egyptian kings.  If these coins are what they are claimed to be, we will not only find a monotheistic ruler of Egypt who is well attested in the Scripture, but we will be able to say for sure that Joseph and his father Jacob ruled during the years of the only known monotheistic sovereignty of ancient Egypt – that of Pharaoh Akenaten (i.e. Amenhotep IV, 1350 BC).

The Article is here: www.jacksonsnyder.com/arc/bible-news/2008-famous-archaeological-finds/joseph-coins.htm

If true, this is a spectacular find and would change the entire religious and demographic history of Egypt, especially knowing, as we do, that Pharaoh Akenaten’s fingerprints are in the Psalms – he wrote the prototype for Psalms 104 four hundred years before King David later embellished it.
