The Shroud of Turin in the New Testament
Due to persecution and the corresponding threat of the Holy Shroud being confiscated or harmed by religious enemies or by political authorities, a plausible inference can be made that any reference concerning the Shroud in the writings of the Apostles would have been veiled or camouflaged. Several texts in the New Testament do exist as being excellent candidates in that regard. The author of this website has written ground-breaking, exegetical papers on these texts. The subject makes for a fascinating study! Evidence strongly suggests the Shroud was treasured in the early Church and used in evangelistic efforts as proof to the truthfulness of the Gospel story.
Larry Stalley has been active in Christian ministry over the past forty years. He and his wife, Mary Beth, have served as church leaders for a few congregations, done missionary work in a communist country, and have hosted several international students in their home. They raised three daughters.
When Larry first learned about the Shroud of Turin, he was very much a skeptic. But one day he read something that sparked his interest. After in-depth research, he concluded the plethora of evidence for the authenticity of the Shroud is very convincing.
