“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 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.

Straight Talk…The Carpenter, Rodna Epley

Posted in Gospel, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 17, 2017 by paulthepoke

RodnaToday I was thinking of the irony that wood and nails, the tools which Jesus used in His trade as a Carpenter, were the same tools that fastened Him to the cross as He died for our sins through crucifixion. So then, the very thing that Jesus gave new purpose or life to, so to speak, was also the thing that aided in taking His Life in the end.

Or so it seemed…! Because the One who hung on that cross was way more than just a Carpenter. He was the Lamb of God, the Eternal Son of God, the everlasting Word of God, who also held the power of life and death in His hands. Which He claimed to have, and proved to have, when He was raised from the dead 3 days later – when the corruptible put on incorruptible and mortality put on immortality. Now the Master Carpenter builds for us an eternal home. For all of us who our faith in Him, repent, pick up our crosses daily, obey His teachings, and follow Him wherever He will lead us…

Therefore God in His infinite wisdom, turned this ironic death into yet more irony. A much more glorious irony, through the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, by which all of us can receive eternal life.

“Jesus said…I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;” – John 11:20

“But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.” – Genesis 50:20

“Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.” – John 2:19

“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of mine, and obeys them, I will liken him to a wise man, which built his house on a rock:” – Matthew 7:24

“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” – Acts 2:38
