Barrie Schwortz Interviewed by Jim Paris

June 26, 2014

So what we have on there is not something that some artist depicted,
so this is the real thing.

Take your choice: The complete PDF transcript of the show or a YouTube soundtrack of the June 22 broadcast (you can click on the play button below). It runs for 54 minutes.

Here is a sample from about the mid-point of the broadcast:

. . . Yeah they crucified him, speared him, scourged him; they did all these things to lots of people. But only one we know of had all of those things applied to him including this crown of thorns. I wanted to add one thing from the earlier segment. The wounds depicted on the shroud are 100% forensically accurate, and that was determined by no less than three forensic experts. So what we have on there is not something that some artist depicted, so this is the real thing.

The show’s description reads:

Barrie Schwortz, one of the original members of the team tasked with analyzing and authentication the Shroud Of Turin, joins Jim Paris Live. Discussed on this episode – what produced the image found on the ancient burial cloth? How do we know that it is not a fake? What evidence is there that the man wrapped in the burial cloth was tortured with a crown of thorns (as in the Gospel account)? Does the Shroud contain the DNA of Jesus Christ?
