Shroud of Turin

Show Archive
Date: Monday - December 27, 2010
Host: George Knapp
Guests: Desiree Hurtak, J. J. Hurtak

George Knapp was joined by J.J. Hurtak and his wife Desiree, multi-faceted scholars & researchers, for a discussion and analysis of recent discoveries about the Shroud of Turin, a sacred relic thought by some to be the burial cloth of Jesus. The Hurtaks, and a group of specialists, were able to view the Shroud in person during its recent exhibition, and were impressed at the wealth of details that could be seen. They called into question the carbon dating of the Shroud (done in 1988) which indicated it was from the 14th century, noting that the samples given to laboratories were from a repaired area of the cloth and not part of the original fabric.

One intriguing area of research is the evidence that a "death certificate" was placed over the shroud and imprinted various letters and words into it. Faint letters in Greek and Hebrew spelled such phrases as "He who is called Jesus," and "taken down in the early morning," said J.J. Interestingly, these linguistic findings correlate with a vision J.J. Hurtak had in the 1970s with an "aleph" Hebrew letter on the throat of a primordial man, just as was found on the Shroud cloth.

The markings in the Shroud linen appear to show the residue of a crucifixion, with 120 flagellation marks that are consistent with the ancient Roman whips, Desiree reported. Further, there are marks on the wrist rather than the palms, which would be necessary in order to hang someone from a cross, she added. Jesus might be considered an "ultraterrestrial," able to change his body into light and materialize in different places, said Desiree, while J.J. noted that the message of the Shroud is more important than the Shroud itself: "It shows us we can step across space and time, and see that there's a higher connectedness that we have with the divine." For more, see this article by the Hurtaks.

Wild Horses Update

Appearing during the first hour was wild horse activist Jerry Reynoldson, who works with Madeleine Pickens on helping to save America's wild horses from round-ups & slaughter. Pickens is drawing attention to the issue with a float in the upcoming Rose Bowl Parade. The horses are in good condition when they are caught, which shows that the argument they have no food to eat is false, Reynoldson pointed out.
