Richard Syrett welcomes a retired professor of biology who reviews the latest scientific research of the ancient piece of linen cloth reported to be the burial shroud of Jesus Christ. Was the Carbon-14 test that placed the Shroud somewhere in the 13th century flawed? Does the image on the Shroud contain evidence of some kind of ‘resurrection’ event?
