Why do we think it is an image of Jesus on the Shroud of Turin?

If you agree I’d like to discuss an important issue I’ve been asked:

Despite 1988 radiocarbon tests, Shroudies claim that the image on the Shroud is from the naked body of Jesus of Nazareth, but even acknowledging that radiocarbon tests were skewed and the cloth is indeed 2000 years old why should the image be of Jesus and not from anyone else?

There were lots of bearded males with a long hair in ancient Palestine whose image would be similar to the one on the Shroud.

May be it would be important to know what interested people has to say on this matter, and later I’ll write my own comment
