The First Photograph

The Shroud of Turin

The Shroud of Turin

A blinding flash of light

When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”
But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’ ” – Mark 16:1-7

As the news becomes darker, it’s time to focus on the Light.

Some 2000 years ago, in the tomb of Jesus Christ, a blinding flash of energy occurred, searing an image of the Son of God into the fabric covering His body. The power that raised Christ from the dead has left a piece of evidence we can see today, quite truly the first photograph in history.

Thank you, Traildust. All I can say, especially after yesterday. Great post and my heartfelt thanks. I pray for all those who do not know the love,the comfort, the truth of the Lord, will let themselves be found by Him. Seek and you shall find Him.

I have my doubts about the shroud. We are given a description of what Christ will look like when He returns, but there really isn’t a description of Him before that time. It would seem to me there is a reason for that to be. One, if He was said to be extremely handsome, it could be argued that people followed Him and called Him the Messiah because of how He looked. (This is an actual phenomenon called “the halo effect” in human behavior.) Two, any likeness of Him could be used as an object of veneration making it an… Read more »

I understand your position. I’ve been born-again for more decades than I care to say and I’ve also read the Bible many, many times and still gleam something new from it each time.
I believe Jesus Christ existed and that He was\is the Messiah. Most of Bible prophecy has been fulfilled which proves that it was divinely inspired. I have no doubts about that at all. But I am skeptical about the Shroud of Turin.
