Jesus resurrected?   1 comment

Easter approaching soon and to further the credibility of Christianity and Jesus Christ, there are more good news.

Computer artists claim to have recreated the face of Jesus Christ using digital technology.

The image was created by taking information and blood encoded on the Turin Shroud – the blood-stained linen that many believe was the burial cloth of the crucified Jesus Christ – and transforming it into a 3D image.

In a two-hour TV special on the History Channel, to air in the U.S. tonight, the computer artists will reveal their image of Jesus in full.

But the results may surprise some viewers. According to the company that made the image it does not resemble the popularized version of Jesus.

Computer artist Ray Downing, the president of Studio Macbeth, said: ‘We ‘lifted’ the blood and isolated it [on the computer] so that it would sit ‘in air’ [on a transparent background].’

He explained that because the Turin Shroud was wrapped around, rather than being draped on the body, the blood was transferred to the cloth as it was wound.

Therefore it did not align with the places on the face from which it originated.

The ancient shroud contains a faint impression of the front and back of a human body, along with blood, dirt and water stains.

The year-long project culminated with a team of graphic artists using the newest technology to create a computer-generated image.

‘I have a lot of information about that face and my estimation is we’re pretty darn close to what this man looked like,’ Mr Downing said.

Mr Downing claims that his technique of computer imaging actually uncovered what substance created the image on the shroud and enabled him to see for the first time the actual face of Jesus.

And he said he said he would offer an explanation for how the image ended up on the shroud.

Downing added: ‘I will reveal at the end of the show the type of event that must have occurred 2,000 years ago.’
