VFTB at the OPS: Russ Breault – Prophecy and the Shroud of Turin

A PIECE of linen woven in the 1st century may have prophetic implications for your life.

That sounds weird, but as Russ Breault, president of the Shroud of Turin Education Project, explains, if the Shroud is a receipt for a debt that’s been paid, then — since Christ promised that He would return at the head of a heavenly army — it’s also a promissory note.  And that makes it the most important piece of cloth in history.

Derek and Sharon Gilbert will be at the Prophecy in the News Pikes Peak Prophecy Summit July 25-27, 2014 at the Marriott Hotel in Colorado Springs.  Watch for information here.

  1. There is so much information. People not following proper protocols when some of the carbon dating was done. People sampling cloth used in repairs and not understanding the “blind weave” method. I don’t know if this was brought up, but the wavelength of light used to recreate a similar image on cloth replicating the depth of the image on the shroud. The evidence is overwhelming. Can the cloth save us? No, but Breault’s analogy of a receipt is captivating.

  2. Hi, George,

    We discussed the light during our interview at Pikes Peak, I think. You can find that interview here: https://vftb.net/?p=4887.

    And I agree–the concept of the Shroud as a receipt and promissory note is brilliant.

  3. In the book of John 20:3-9, the cloth on the face was ‘folded in another place’. So how could the ‘face’ be on the shroud when it was covered separately?

      Good question. Researchers theorize that the face cloth mentioned by John covered Jesus’ face until he was buried and wrapped with the Shroud. An artifact known as the Sudarium of Oviedo is believed to be that cloth. See this website for more information.

  4. The stains on the Sudarium and the Shrould match. If you overlay & scale them correctly in Photoshop one can see this. As Spock would say, it is *fascinating*. There is a great video with Russ at Shrouduniverity.com under videos. It is called “Shroud Report Interview with Mark Guscin on the Sudarium of Oviedo”

  5. I’m really looking forward to the guest you mentioned who will discuss what to do when your 2-year-old sees something that isn’t there. I’m wondering what to do when my dog alerts to something that isn’t there. I have a very bright American Eskimo that I have taught to sit when approaching people. She gets very excited upon meeting new people and tends to want to jump up on them, hence my teaching her to sit. But she adopts a posture that I have only seen her adopt when she sees someone she wants to meet. Anyone who has a dog knows what I mean. Long story short, she alerts to something at the top of my staircase I can’t see the same way she alerts to people we meet when out walking.

  6. Amazing answers. Thank you for the links that I can follow. AMAZING. You are my best blessing so far today.

      Since there are about two dozen reasons why no medieval artist, not even Leonardo, could have created the shroud, I suspect Russ would say that he must have based his painting of Christ on the image embedded in the shroud.

  7. I’m a professional artist and designer by day, and I agree with you Derek. Also Leonardo was a master artist, so his use of basic forms was right on the money. The two image only match superficially in vertical dimensions only, because the basic dimensions of the human face do not really change. The facial features do not match so well horizontally (width of nose, lips, facial lines, etc). Plus by then, there had already been hundreds, even thousands of pieces of medieval art that represented Jesus, they all drew from each other. Combine that with basic drawing fundamentals of the human face and there you have it.

    Finally, the Hungarian Pray Manuscript from 1192-1195 shows a representation of the shroud with a very specific set of L-shaped burn holes that do exist on the actual shroud.
