The Nazarene Messiah is Wearing a Tefillin between His forehead and His hand - keeping with the Mitzvot of the Torah (Deut. 6:8) as the Mark of Elohim to Keep the Law which applies to His Chosen of Israel.

Astonishing New Phenomenon Discovered in the Shroud Photogrammetric restitution on the Shroud of Turin has revealed a previously unknown phenomenon that opens up new horizons for science.

The strength of this discovery is stressed by the fact that the geometrical data used for restitution can be verified with tools that are accessible to everyone.

The Nazarene Messiah is Wearing a Tefillin on the Shroud

At the 29:50 mark above we discover the Nazarene Messiah is wearing Tefillin on his forehead and hands. Tefillin is one of the most important Mitzvot (precepts) of the Torah. It has been observed and treasured for thousands of years, right down to the present day. The Torah mentions it more than once, but most explicitly in Deut. 6:8 "You shall bind them as a sign upon your hand, and they should be for a reminder between your eyes."

And Exodus 13:16:

"So it shall serve as a sign on your hand and as phylacteries on your forehead, for with a powerful hand the LORD brought us out of Egypt."

Tefillin consists of two small leather boxes attached to leather straps. The two boxes each contain four sections of the Torah inscribed on parchment. These passages cite:

  1. The Shema (Deut. 6:4-9) - pronouncing the Unity of The One Elohim.
  2. Vehayah (Deut. 11:13-21) - expressing Elohim's assurance to us of reward that will follow our observance of the Torah's precepts, and warning of retribution for disobedience to them.
  3. Kadesh (Ex. 13:1-10) - the duty of the children of Israel to always remember the redemption from Egyptian bondage.
  4. Vehayah (Ex. 13:11-16) - the obligation of every child of Israel to inform their children on these matters.

One of the boxes (the "hand Tefillin") is placed upon the left arm so as to rest against the heart - the seat of the emotions, and the suspended leather strap is wound around the left hand, and around the middle finger of that hand. The other box (the "Head Tefillin") is placed upon the head, above the forehead, so as to rest upon the cerebrum. In this manner our attention is directed to the head, heart and hand. It teaches us to dedicate ourselves to the service of Elohim in all that we think, feel and do. It is also to teach us not to be governed solely by the impulse of the heart, lest that lead us into error and transgression. Nor are we to be governed by reason alone, for that may lead to harsh materialism.

Placed on the arm opposite the heart, and on the head, the Tefillin signify the submission of one's mind, heart and actions to the Almighty, as well as the rule of intellect over emotion.
