Each time I catch your shows, I’m always pleased and surprised.
I’m a senior myself, but can see these episodes being very helpful for young people.
Keep up the good work!
Coins on the eyes are pareidolia – your mind “sees” an organized image. Coins on eyes are NOT a 1st Century Jewish funerary custom. Jews would not have disrespected Jesus by placing Roman coins on his being, after Romans put him to death.
I, David Christie AM this VIGNON MAN!…;
Thank you for a show well done and very much of interest to your Catholic audience. I didn’t know that there were further tests after the carbon 14 dating test so I am happy that further tests revealed the fabric to have existed during the time of Jesus.
I didn’t know that other images existed on fabric in addition to the veil of Veronica. Altogether one of your best podcasts.
What is the background of Richard Scheel? Is he a Bible scholar from the secular branch? I truly enjoy the intellectual journey to God and Jesus. I have been a Catholic all my life and have a Catholic lineage that goes back several generations on both sides and I have to say that since the priest scandals there has been a lot of hatred, real and generated, for Catholics. When I say generated I mean those who look to find a person or cause to hate have landed squarely on Catholicism.
Your show is needed.
The Shroud of Turin available online to view during the 2020 Easter celebrations was balm for the soul. Holy Face of Jesus, have mercy on us and sustain us in our solitude. Amen.
The Passion Play is performed once each decade in Oberammergau, Bavaria, Germany. The tradition began in 1634. In our current chaotic society of immediate gratification, this tradition exemplifies the sweetness of delayed gratification and promotes the longing for something sacred during an extended time of persecution, or as during this virus, abstinence from Sacraments and from the consolation of just sitting inside a church near a Tabernacle. Also with The Shroud, shown only 3x in 20yrs. our desire, forged by sacrifice, intensifies.
Could you tell me the name of the scientist who discovered that spot in your hand that would have supported the body’s weight?
