SciFriday: The Shroud of Turin

One of the most mysterious artifacts in history is back in the news. An Italian scientist and his team used a new X-ray technique to date the shroud, purported to be the burial cloth of Jesus, to about the time of his crucifixion.

This contradicts a 1988 study that used radiocarbon dating to place the shroud’s creation in the year 1325, +/- 65 years.

This week, we pull excerpts from a pair of interviews Derek conducted in July, 2013 at a Prophecy Watchers conference in Colorado Springs. Russ Breault, president and founder of the Shroud of Turin Education Project (, and Barrie Schwortz, president of the Shroud of Turin Education and Research Association (, explain why they believe the shroud is what believers claim it to be—a piece of linen that preserves the image of the pre-resurrected Jesus.

Turkey is a land that’s full of historic and prophetic significance—the churches of Revelation, Abraham’s home city, and the oldest religious community on Earth, Göbekli Tepe. Join us on this adventure! Our tour runs October 18-November 3, 2022. Find out more at
