Did you know that there are 145 points of congruence between the Shroud of Turin and the image of Our Lord engraved on the 7th century Roman coin known as the Solidus of Justinian II? Are you aware that at the Monastery of St. Catherine in Sinai that there is an 6th century image of King Abgar V of Edessa holding a cloth on which is imprinted the face of Jesus? Remarkably, two centuries earlier, Church historian St. Eusebius recorded that King Abgar had been healed of leprosy when he touched this cloth! Is this evidence that the Shroud of Turin could have existed from the earliest centuries? It may be, but there is still more. There is also scientific evidence that defies explanation and it pertains to the image on the Shroud itself!
