Most think the shroud is a 14th century creation (such inventions were quite common then)...
However, one man is saying the Shroud is authentic. And he set about the task to find out exactly what Jesus looked like using the imprint on the Shroud to recreate a 3-d representation of Jesus. And this brings us to a two hour special on the History channel tomorrow night where we finally get to see exactly what Jesus looked like (oh the tension, I cannot wait!).
Of course I care not much for the show itself, but rather to see the academic reaction to the piece. If you remember, the last time something like this came out, it was James Cameron revealing that they found the tomb of Jesus buried with his family on the Discovery Channel back in 2007. The science and honesty behind the documentary was so bad that the Discovery channel refused to show it again amidst sharp, but well deserved critics of academia.
