CHRIST NAILED TO A STAKE NOT A CROSS


The manner the Messiah was actually executed:

WHAT IS THE TURIN SHROUD?


The Shroud is a 14ft (4.3 metre) long piece of linen that appears to show the faint imprint of a man bearing wounds consistent with crucifixion. 

Some people believe it shows the image of Jesus of Nazareth, while others think it is a medieval forgery of cloth wrapped around a body after crucifixion.The Shroud is the most studied artefact in human history but its age remains in dispute.

Radiocarbon dating of the cloth carried out by the University of Oxford in 1998 found it was only 728 years old. Regardless of whether the Shroud is Biblical or medieval, Matteo Borrini at Liverpool John Moores University told New Scientist that ‘it’s a very interesting piece of art and human ingenuity’.

He set out to find whether the ‘bloodstains’ on the left arm matched up with the flow of blood from a crucified person.

To investigate, another researcher from the University of Pavia, Italy, assumed different crucifixion poses while donated blood trickled down his arm from a place where the shroud shows a nail was hammered through the hand.

The duo found that the ‘blood’ marks on the shroud correspond to a crucifixion – but only if a person was nailed onto a cross in a ‘Y’ position instead of a ‘T’ position, as depicted in most Christian art.

Does it make a difference how the Messiah was executed?


Absolutely... the truth sets you free of false, established paradigms that would have you believe there is salvation in a pagan Egyptian symbol - the Tau - which expressly violates the Father's 2nd commandment to NOT worship false images. Given Roman Catholicism's obsession with pagan worship - particularly Egyptian - it is not surprising it would adopt and sell an instrument of death for salvation.

Shroud of Turin depicts Y-shaped crucifixion

THE image of Christ on the cross, arms stretched out to the sides, is seared onto many Christians’ minds. But this isn’t necessarily how people have imagined it throughout history. A new analysis of the Shroud of Turin, which appears to depict a man that has been crucified, suggests that whoever created it thought crucifixion involved the hands being nailed above the head.

The Shroud of Turin is a piece of linen cloth imprinted with the faint image of a naked man with what appear to be streams of blood running down his arms (seen in the bottom centre of the photo), and other wounds. Some believe it is the cloth in which Jesus’s body was wrapped after crucifixion. But reliable records of it only begin in the 14th century, and carbon dating suggests the Shroud is a medieval forgery.

Either way, the Shroud is worth studying, says Matteo Borrini at Liverpool John Moores University in the UK. “If it’s a fake, then it’s a very interesting piece of art and human ingenuity,” he says.

Borrini wanted to know if the “bloodstains” on the left arm, the clearest ones, were consistent with the flow of blood from the wrist of a crucified person. So he asked Luigi Garlaschelli of the University of Pavia, Italy, to assume different crucifixion postures, while a cannula attached to his wrist dribbled donated blood down his arm.

They found that the marks on the shroud did correspond to a crucifixion, but only if the arms were placed above the head in a “Y” position, rather than in the classic “T” depiction. “This would have been a very painful position and one which would have created difficulty breathing,” says Borrini. Someone crucified in this way may have died from asphyxiation. Borrini presented his results at a meeting of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences in Seattle in February.

Borrini says similar positions were used during medieval torture, but in those cases the victims were suspended from a beam by binding their wrists with rope, rather than using nails.

The results confirm earlier experiments by Gilbert Lavoie, a Massachusetts-based doctor, that suggested a Y-shaped crucifixion. “The blood-flow is absolutely consistent with what you see on the Shroud,” Lavoie says. He described his studies in Unlocking the Secrets of the Shroud.

“The imprint on the Shroud does not correspond with many traditional artistic images of crucifixion,” says Niels Svensson, a doctor in Maribo, Denmark, who has also studied the Shroud.

But not all artists show Jesus in a T-shaped posture. For instance, the Flemish painter Peter Paul Rubens repeatedly painted Jesus with his arms above his head on the cross, as did many others.

Whoever made the Shroud must have been a skilled forger to create the correct blood spatter for a crucifixion. The alternative is that they made the right pattern by chance. “It could be that the artist just decided to draw the rivulets of blood parallel to the arms for artistic reasons,” says Borrini.
