Here are some reconstructions of the face on the Turin shroud:

.........................Image.........Image........Image
(from: http://www.ubthenews.com/topics/ShroudTurin.htm)

The first and second image are simply a positive and negative photograph of the shroud. The third graph was apparently created from the shroud image by an analogue computer which was designed to derive 3 dimensional data from 2D pictures of the surface of the moon (such as the heights and depths of craters, valleys, mountains, etc.)..

"The face of Jesus obtained by NASA in 1978 with the use of techniques of image processing, from photographic negatives of the Shroud of Turin."

And here's what Pope John Paul II , A personality I admire, said about the shroud:

Quote:
"The Shroud is a challenge to our intelligence. It first of all requires of every person, particularly the researcher, that he humbly grasp the profound message it sends to his reason and his life. The mysterious fascination of the Shroud forces questions to be raised about the sacred Linen and the historical life of Jesus. Since it is not a matter of Faith, the Church has not specific competence to pronounce on these questions. She entrusts to scientists the task of continuing to investigate, so that satisfactory answers may be found to the questions connected with this Sheet, which, according to tradition, wrapped the body of our Redeemer after He had been taken down from the Cross. The Church urges that the Shroud be studied without pre-established positions that take for granted results that are not such; she invites them to act with interior freedom and attentive respect for both scientific methodology and the sensibilities of believers. (…)

"Before the Shroud, the intense and agonizing image of an unspeakable torment, I wish to thank the Lord for this unique gift, which asks for the believer’s loving attention and complete willingness to follow the Lord. (...)

"For the believer, what counts above all is, that the Shroud is a mirror of the Gospel. In fact, if we reflect on the sacred Linen, we cannot escape the idea that the image it presents has such a profound relationship with what the Gospels tell of Jesus’ passion and death, that every sensitive person feels inwardly touched and moved at beholding it. Whoever approaches it is also aware that the Shroud does not hold people’s hearts to itself, but turns them to Him, at whose service the Father’s loving providence has put it. Therefore, it is right to foster an awareness of the precious value of this image, which everyone sees and no one at present can explain. For every thoughtful person it is a reason for deep reflection, which can even involve one’s life.

"The Shroud is thus a truly unique sign that points to Jesus, the true Word of the Father, and invites us to pattern our lives on the life of the One who gave Himself for us. (...)

The above is my personal favorite of our savior, creator-son, and Father Brother.

That is an image I can contemplate on for many many hours; I hope it helps you find what you are looking for brother .

God Bless O:)

Accidentally came across this. In the upper left hand photograph is, I believe, a UB reader apparently praying to what must be interpreted as The Master. It looks like the facial image from the Shroud of Turin.

One has to notice how extremely narrow the face in the image really is. It doesn't seem like any modern humans on this planet have a face or head with those dimensions any longer. We can surmise maybe that a healthy dose of Adamic "life plasm" went into the biologic makeup of the person from whom the image originated. Rather intriguing really. :razz:

The devotion of the person praying is certainly also to be noticed.

Is the man in the picture the Urantia Book reader, Carlos Santana?
