“The Mystery Man” of the Shroud of Turin

Isaiah 53:5 But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.

A fifteen year project has been completed by artists in Spain.

Based on a study of the Shroud of Turin, a sculpture has been created that matches the blood stains. The sculpture is made of latex, silicon, and real hair.

The body is 5′ 10″ and weighs 165 pounds.

The Mystery Man is on display in Salamanca Cathedral in Spain.


John 19:2 And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on His head, and put a purple robe on Him. See also Matthew 27:29, Mark 15:17, John 19:5.


Mark 15:15 So Pilate, wishing to satisfy the crowd, released for them Barabbas, and having scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified. See also Matthew 20:19, 27:26, John 19:1.


John 19:18 There they crucified Him, and with Him two others, one on each side, with Jesus in the middle.


Psalm 22:16 For dogs have surrounded me; a band of evildoers has encompassed me; they pierced my hands and my feet.

John 19:34 Yet one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.





John 20:27 Then He said to Thomas, “Place your finger here, and see My hands; and take your hand and put it into My side; and do not continue in disbelief, but be a believer.”


Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and of pleading, so that they will look at Me whom they pierced; and they will mourn for Him, like one mourning for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.

Revelation 1:7 Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.

    I believe there is ‘absolute proof’ of the resurrection of our Lord that is revealed in both Scriptural and secular historical accounts. It is most like the Lord to leave His evidence woven in accordance with Jeremiah 29:13, rewarding the diligent seeker with this hidden treasure. It is very much unlike our Lord to reveal Himself in such a blatant manner. His truth always requires faith to ‘see’ His evidence of things ‘not seen’ (Hebrews 11:1). The shroud does not fit the strict scrutiny of the Scriptural narrative although it has tremendous visual appeal. Additionally, the shroud seems to better fit the narrative of one who may appear in the future requiring ‘proof’ that he is the Christ. One who would match the ‘evidence’ of blood type, visual similarities, etc. to those of the shroud in order to win the popular vote. I realize this statement would require much to be written in support and it is not my intention to do so in this format. However, I would welcome any future dialog as I believe this is a very important subject to be convinced of.
