The Shroud of Turin

This is an excellent example of how modern science has been used to unlock something utterly amazing in an ancient artifact. The Shroud of Turin has been held for centuries by the Catholic Church to be the burial cloth that covered the body of Jesus in the tomb. A single Carbon dating was done on one isolated edge piece of the cloth which dated it about the 13th Century. By focusing on this one tiny bit of carbon dating data and ignoring the thousands of other scientific confirmations, it appeared to many that the authenticity of the cloth was disproven. Speculation had been that an ancient master painted the image on the cloth. It was only recently discovered that the sample that was carbon dated was indeed from the middle ages. The Shroud had survived a fire during that era where some of the edges had been damaged. Apparently those portions of the damaged Shroud were rewoven by master weavers into the original ancient cloth. So is this indeed the material that covered the body of Jesus? You be the judge, but look what appeared when space age scanning techniques used by NASA were applied to the image encoded in the very fibers of cloth. There is no way this three dimensional digital image could have been "painted by a master" as detractors have speculated. Is this a holographic image of the body of Jesus at the moment of His resurrection three days after His sacrifice on the cross for you?
