I've seen many documentaries and specials on the shroud, and since a carbon 14 test alleged to have indicated the shroud was from the middle ages, I had wondered if that test was somehow flawed. Following that test, many scientists came forward to discredit the test for a couple important reasons. Well, this news story seems to go further and explains that new tests reveal the shroud is, in fact, from the 1st century. If so, this will have a significant impact upon many people. As one of my longtime friends, a Jewish guy, once told me, the image on the shroud is just too exact, too detailed, too unique to be a forgery. Very interesting.
