Little publicized and thus vaguely known, but of GREAT importance, is the finding of a death certificate on the Shroud of Turin, discovered back in November 2009.
The reason it cannot be duplicated is because it was the result of a supernatural event that occurred when Jesus, (Yeshua Ha Mashiach) was resurrected on the third day and translated from death into life, from mortality into immortality, into a glorified body.
" taken down in the early evening In the year 16 of the reign of the Emperor Tiberius Jesus the Nazarene,after having been condemned to death by a Roman judge because he was found guilty by a Hebrew authority, is hereby sent for burial with the obligation of being consigned to his family only after one full year". It ends "signed by" but the signature has not survived."
"Best known for her studies of the Knights Templar, who she claims at one stage preserved the shroud, she said what she had deciphered was "the death sentence on a man called Jesus the Nazarene'."
"If that man was also Christ the Son of God it is beyond my job to establish. I did not set out to demonstrate the truth of faith. I am a Catholic, but all my teachers have been atheists or agnostics, and the only believer among them was a Jew. I forced myself to work on this as I would have done on any other archaeological find."
"In the year 16 of the reign of the Emperor Tiberius..":
"..after having been condemned to death by a Roman judge.."
Research shows that Pontius Pilate, governed the Roman province of Judea from AD 26-36. Well known is the fact that he presided as judge over Jesus's sentencing.
Mark 15:37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
It was necessary to expedite the burial of a dead body prior to sundown as was required preceding a Sabbath. Note that the Jewish Sabbath begins at sunset.
" In the year sixteen of the reign of Tiberius" ,
" Jesus the Nazarene" was """ taken down in the early evening" to be " sent for burial" after he was " condemned to death by a Roman judge" (Pontius Pilate) """ because he was found guilty by a Hebrew authority"" (the chief priests).
What a gracious and loving God to offer proof of the Resurrected Messiah here in these end times!
God has now allowed physical and scientific evidence not only to solidify the faith of those who already follow the living Christ, but also to beckon any who will accept His free gift of pardon made possible by His death at the cross.
This death certificate details the events surrounding the redemptive work that Yeshua accomplished at Calvary on our behalf.
The image of the Lord Jesus on the Shroud is proof to us of His resurrection and also gives us the hope of our own resurrection into immortality, when He comes !
