The Torment of the Cross
A Physiological Study of the Passion of Jesus according to the Holy Shroud of Turin and the Surgeons
Examining each of the marks, analyzing each clue inscribed on the Holy Shroud, researchers have noted the total concordance, without the slightest error, of anatomical and historical analyses with the Evangelists’ account; of the “Man of the Shroud” with Jesus of Nazareth.
Not only is there concordance, but the Shroud reveals a multitude of details not documented in the Holy Book. Is it any wonder that many have called this precious relic “the Fifth Gospel”?
Above all, the “Gospel” of the Holy Shroud relates the harrowing story of the Passion of Jesus, with previously unsuspected details. In revealing the immensity of His sufferings, it shows us the immensity of His LOVE.
