Shroud of Turin

Introduction

The Shroud of Turin bears the blood marks and faint image of a man who had been crucified and scourged. It is consistent with the biblical description of the death of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. 

This linen burial cloth, approximately 14 feet by 3 and a half feet, has been the focus of countless studies. Gilbert R. Lavoie, M.D., specialist in Internal Medicine and Occupational Medicine, has researched this subject for over 30 years. His work is detailed in the book, “Unlocking the Secrets of the Shroud”. This book brings to light startling new forensic information that illustrates that the man in the shroud is not lying in burial but is lifted up as if he were suspended in midair.
