This question is one of the most debated topics when it comes to religious artifacts there is. I won’t give details as to its known history. You can research that for yourselves. I will only bring up two points that are uncontestable that prove the Shroud of Turin was indeed Christ’s burial cloth. One, there are images in the shroud as well as pollen from a flower only found in Israel, which conclusively state the shroud originated in Israel. The flower is called the Zygophalum Dumosum. Despite historians bringing up for decades where they originally found, or refound as the case may be, the shroud, botanists now can conclude these floral imprints and pollen come only from Israel. Secondly, and most importantly, what caused the image? See, God clouds the judgment of believers and nonbelievers alike, so this question has escaped at least most of them. If man caused this image, wouldn’t we with our modern computerized scanners detect paint or something that made the image? The shroud is one of the most, if not the most scrutinized artifact out there, so what produced the image? The answer is something obvious and one not able to be accepted by many, yet they will never have an explanation.
