The Evidence in the
gospel as to the fate of Jesus seems to have very close links with what we
find on the cloth.
Jesus was struck with a blow to
the face (Mt.27:30, Mk15:19) and crowned with thorns (Mt27:29, Mk15:17),
this seems to coincide with the markings around the face and forehead.
Jesus was scourged (Mt27:26, Mk15:15), on the back there over a 100 marks
which show wounding similar to the type inflicted by Roman soldiers on
Jesus is made to carry a heavy cross (Jn19:17), the shoulders exhibit
marks as if carrying a heavy object.
