Vocal Point-David Rolfe

Topic: Shroud Interview – Overview

In the colonial days, there was a common practice in the Anglican churches to have printed up in large words the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Ten Commandments. This panel on the walls even has a name for it—a reredos. Included in the Apostles’ Creed is the line about Jesus rising from the dead. The resurrection of Jesus from the dead is the cornerstone of historic Christianity. Is it possible—and I think it is—that there is scientific evidence for Jesus? I refer to the Shroud of Turin, a 14 by 3 foot linen cloth that is believed by many to have been the actual burial cloth of Jesus of Nazareth. One man in our time who has done so much to present information about the Shroud is British film-maker David Rolfe, who has made about 5 or 6 films on the subject, including the classic documentary, “The Silent Witness.” David Rolfe joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss the Shroud and a million dollar challenge to skeptics to make a replica of this thing they claim is a fake. This is part 1 of a 3-part discussion. www.whocanhebe.com
