Political concerns (cont'd):
'....Fear that Jesus would make good
his revival on the third day.....;fear that the Dead....(ghosts)
which were said to have been seen WALKING IN THE CITY....WOULD ATTACK
THEM; fear of the great darkness that gripped all
the empire on that Good Friday; fear of the massive quake that
shook the earth like a bell being rung(said JOSEPHUS).
And, so also, like Cain,fear of God's wrath; fear of the innocent
blood spilled at his word (Pialate's); in a word, TERROR, THE TERROR
OF GOD SHOOK THIS MAN TO HIS VERY CORE (Judas went insane and killed himself).
An officer's tack & armor:
Someone else in the local chain of command seems to have ordered Jesus' body and shroud, to be covered over with sword and armor. I have identified the standard issue sword of the Roman Army, called the Gladiius, it's total length being approximately 27"; it being located from just inside the knee on the side of the lung wound. The sword's point being approximately 4" above the crossed hands.
In earlier writings of mine, I had not yet realized the continuous nature of the armor covering i.e. probable armor of an officer's mount. "WHAT HAVEN'T I LOCATED?" - just this: where does one section of scales end and the other start, is there a standard shield or shields, and are there edges and handholds seen? Of some interest may be the iron used in making many armors and weapons, in as much as iron oxides have been identified upon the Shroud's surface.
Possible...TOTAL TACK....OF AN OFFICER AT JESUS TOMB SHIELF; a 2-1/2 ft. long sword//2ft. long scabard//a shirt of scale armor//a horse's armored eye-guards// bronze scale armor of his mount// a dagger// goat-skin saddle with it's four bronze stiffeners (corner) horns. helmet with cast -iron mask//aloes,...leg bindings,arm-phylactory(seen close to one elbow),forehead phylactory (scripture box) removed parchment scripture...about 4" above..(top of head)...container.
What is THE DIVIDING LINE....BETWEEN THESE MILITARY ITEMS AND THE JEWISH BURIAL ITSELF? The THE TURINO Shroud is that line.
THE EFFECTS OF BRONZE, IRON OR COPPER
ARMOR arms surrounding the flesh of one that is swooning from
trauma during AN EARTHQUAKE , WITH IT'S RELATED HEAT AND LIGHT, ELECTRIC
DISCHARGE AND VIOLENCE; could this result in the revival of the
The two parts of the equation:
awoke from coma and was acted upon by external forces, e.g. the
ways coma patients are awaken or how heart failure is agressively
treated, violently;strong drugs are injected, extreme shock via
metal plates tried repeatedly or the violence of the
resurrection was a side-effect of the powers involved---G O D .
Ancient armor's decay:
Also, it would seem.the very Shroud of their victim has out- lasted most all of the weapons of war of that era. There is a great lack of armor dating from the era of the 1st. century. Very little has little has lasted all these many yeare, to enlighten us as to details (mostly were bronze or iron, either woven at all four corners to form a covering, or at an inner , hidden edge, to form a sort of fish-scale protection, of somewhat more modern Roman types, about 40 have been identified, yet these are almost always found in heaps, hardly ever as fairly large intact segments of armor (penny armor, imaged)types, at times mistaken as hourdes).
Much identification of these type is
done via stone carvings of battles. Often, the war-horses are depicted
as being enscaled. A few horse-armors of the 1st century have survived
mostly intact; three known by me to be fairly
recognizable. The closest match to the upper body covering seen over the flesh of Christ is a bronze armor at the National Museum, Damascus, Syria.
A thought comes to mind, that
when someone is bleeding, various ways are used to stem the flow: direct
pressure, bandage, stay calm, don't move around, (thus keeping the
heart rate low), stay warm, lie down flat, rest, tourniquet.
THE WEIGHT OF THE ARMOR WOULD ACT TO CAUSE THE SHROUD ITSELF TO ACT AS A BANDAGE, AND BEING A GOOD DEAL OF DIRECT PRESSURE BEING DOWN. BODY TEMPATURE WOULD BE KEPT HIGHER.
Any and all of these factors may
have been at play that Sabboth day in the tomb. Also direct contact
with the earth itself is said by many cultures to be of great benefit.
Note this effect at the forehead area: blood splotches, exactly
where the contact of covering coin -scales would press down on the
The dozen guards were "silenced":
Consider the question: was the
"Large Money" (i.e. a large amount) that was given to the tomb-guards
for their silence, in reality the armors themselves?
What do you give a military man, anyway? Perhaps they gambled over this also.
Air Force computer 3D imaging:
Many researchers trying to put together the "best face" out of the raw data that came from Air Force 3D computer imaging did not look human. This is fine, except, with enlargments of the whole body, I've discovered that this effort to "humanize" (i.e. make it look like flesh) is a false goal and not to the point. The 3D imaging is an uneven reflection and is only that.
Computer Images, such as the one on the cover one an edition of the Shroud International Spectrum magazine ignore the real information and imagry and try to filter out the uneven reflection (armor covering). The true computer images on one edition was a popular WASHED version of the data of the head area. The rough-edges and unevenness had been filtered away to leave a strangish looking .....mask-like computer's idea. One of the workers on this project was Mr. Ralph Grasiber; he wrote me that he had spent nearly three years...to GET RID OF OF ....OBJECTS images that ruined the finished product...
Image processing still in infancy
Please help in the effort to use the
very computers that manifest the Shroud image, to not be used to
smooth over the realities; rather, to ELECTRONICLY REMOVE THEM.
Solar versus Lunar / Reflected light:
WHY? The Turin Shroud is more than a projected image of the resurrection, it also contains faint reflected imagry of the un-even covering of the coin scale armor. What a first seems to be a man's image...with study, is found to be much more....i.e., if you shot a photo of yourself, looking into a calm stream ( as in a mirror), many other things are to be noted. It would seem that this cocoon-like state, as imaged, contains more objects and data....than many might suspect: a solid covering, allowing in some air, acting like a thermal blanket, keeping the heat in.
Remember Christ's words "be not like
unto the foolish man, that, looketh into the perfect mirror of the law,
and straight way forgeteth..." All that I AM REALLY DOING IS
TAKING THE FACTS AND IMAGES, and putting these together to make manifest
Christ's gospel: "for whatever maketh manifest, IS LIGHT."
also "...a city that is set upon a hill ,can not be hid."
A short bit from one of my bible concordances: PI'LATE, Pon'tius "...one of his acts was to remove the headquarters of the Army from Caesarea to Jerusalem. THE SOLDIERS, OF COURSE TOOK WITH THEM STANDARDS, BEARING THE IMAGE OF THE EMPEROR , INTO THE HOLY CITY. NO PREVIOUS GOVERNER HAD VENTURED ON SUCH AN OUTRAGE . resistance to(such) an idolatrous innovation..." "...he was banished to Vienna..."
Help from above:
I would like to note the idea of the chosen of God....in the revelations
of John/ The standard Size of the Roman military was
,for a good many years...only 26-30 Legions ...,of about 5000 men each/that
is ,130,000....to 150,000 men....under arms/ John spoke of the
12 tribes ....x12,000 choosen ones in a squared-off formation...a
cube, in the NEW CITY OF GOD..../ THE IDEA THAT COMES TO MIND
IS THAT OF WANTING A FAIR FIGHT... THE ONE THING THAT ROME
WAS IN NO MOOD for GIVing ANYONE ANYTHING LIKE A CHANCE.
THE FAVORED WAY OF MOVING TROOPS ABOUT THE FIELD OF CONFLICT WAS OF COURSE ....THE SQUARE. It WAS STATED by ONE ROMAN OF HIGH RANK....UPON SEEING THE EVENTS OF THE CRUSIFICTION...."SURELY,THIS MAN WAS THE SON OF GOD." This very man, being quite possibly the ranking man of the hour, a Centurion,...may well of had some influence upon the disposition of the SON OF GOD. The armor of someone was placed over his battered flesh; much of it indicating it's origins a man of high rank.
One item that is very recognizable is a silvered-iron mask, possibly attached to a standard helmet of the time. This can be see seen at JESUS' HIP, on the Shroud image, AND TURNED AT APPROX. 35 DEGREE ANGLE...DETAILS ARE WITHIN 10 PERCENT OF THE FACIAL FEATURES OF OF Christ. In size, it may indicate an owner with fairly small features.
A fairly thick and round object covers
the mask, from the upper lip down. Most of the helmet is not seen
at all, only the upper frontal area....where it formed a reflective surface
and was in close contact with the image source, as it were....the firey
skin-aura. The eyes, brow, nose, checks, are evident.
Soldiers following orders:
No doubt the murder of Christ by the Church elders and goverment was no more well recieved than the orders to kill civilians in many other wars, Kosovo included. In the eyes of the even slightly enlightened officers, the best they could do and still keep there skin was to bury the Christ in their best armor, as the honored dead in battle; indeed, Christ went to his fate showing no little bit of grit. IN EFFECT,THEY WERE MAKING A STATEMENT....AS ONLY A SOLDIER COULD
OR...contra-wise, the images of Ceasar were allowed to even pursue Jesus, even unto and beyond the grave. - his visage, via the Shroud of the firey resurrection. "jealousy is cruel as the grave; THE COALS THEREOF ARE COALS OF FIRE, WHICH BURN WITH THE MOST VEHEMENT FIRE..." - song of Solomon.
"...many waters can not quench love,neither can the floods drown it; IF A MAN WERE TO GIVE ALL THE SUBSTANCE OF HIS HOUSE FOR LOVE, IT WOULD UTTERLY BE CONTEMNED".
Left-hand, right-hand, not knowing the other:
The armor of one...somewhat believing
soldier may have been the very means God used to preserve the IMAGE
OF A VERY HOLY PERSON...TO THESE TIMES VIA THE STROBE-FLASH.
A related topic...the strange facts surrounding what are best known
as SPONTANEOUS HUMAN COMBUSTION; the facts thereof seem to defy the standard
model of the universe; incineration yet little heat, ignition source, rarely
to be found, a mystery of this and earlier times.
Items of a mobil army:
Other items that might have been in
burial area// sword belt,18 inch dagger, horse-blanket, spear, spears...horse's
face-mask, and connected neck armor...(coin-scale type) connectors thereof,
straps thereof and soldier's own armor (upper and lower
body). One place some of these straps or belts are most obvious...,is
the upper-back of Christ's bloodied head// the one side...seems to be about
4 inches wide belt, and rounded there-like/ the other end,
buckle like? at the other side...,both running front to back...toward
his cheeks...the buckle-like device above the (RIGHT-side?) ear ,is
made up of two 4 inch pins...at end,...facing ear to ear...with
small flatenings...at both ends of each.
A Nazerine of uncut hair:
THE HAIR ITSELF, IS GATHERED TOGETHER
AND UNCUT; RUNNING DOWN THE BACK,OVER THE SPINE AND COMING
TO A POINT, 1/2 WAY DOWN HIS BACK. IT WAS SEEMINGLY COMBED AND CENTERED...,THOUGH
NOT WASHED. AT THE BACK OF HIS NECK, SOME LEATHER DEVICE...TO
HOLD IT ALL IN PLACE.
AN IDEA OF A HINT, as to the reality
of his future burial? "...and,you soldiers,
be content of your wages..." perhaps he knew the double meaning there contained;that the wages of these men was oft directly used....via heating and iron-punch...,as a type of scale-covering(oft a life-saver,no doubt) Job 39/ "...HE PAWETH THE VALLEY AND REJOICETH IN HIS STRENGTH: HE GOETH ON TO MEET THE ARMED MEN. HE MOCKETH AT FEAR AND IS NOT AFFRIGHTENED, NEATHER TURNETH HE BACK FROM THE SWORD.THE QUIVER ...

Armor types noted:
A few ideas as to standard Roman arms and armor, possibly seen over and around Jesus' flesh:
1) The SCALOPS: used as a curved
area of transition, from the solid upper -body coverings,down
to the hanging pteruges...of the legs (often had large cast
faces of medusa/demons. leather face armor(horse-type)
----SEEN TO BE CENTERED ON THE CHEST AREA OF CHRIST...AND COMING DOWN TO THE STOMACH AREA (THIS IS BEST SEEN IN STANDARD...HIGH CONTRAST PHOTOS//
2) A LARGE RECTANGULAR ROMAN shield....AS VIEWED FROM THE INSIDE), which curves around the body, WITH A CENTERED HANDLE, WHICH IS ATTACHED VERTICALY ;THE LOWER EDGE,BEING SEEN, RUNNING ACROSS THE THIGH REGION, THE UPPER EDGE,AT THE NECK, showing up as a 1/2" ridge.
3) WARHORSE NECK ARMOR: I have studied for quite some time the chest area of the wounded savior; the look thereof is very muscular...as if he had been working in heavy lifting;this is indeed another distortion, due to the ends of the semi-detached warhorse neck armor giving a deceptive look to the body. The connecting devices thereof are easily compared with the literature existant; the mask, when worn, atached at the top and at both sides;these side pieces end, running across the image area, from the top of both arm covering SHROUD PATCHES.
4) SHIELD HANDLE: Centered between the inverted v -shaped eyes of said face armor....may well be the shield handle...10 inches tall, 2 inches wide// or..
5) perhaps a FALSE HORN...to mimic a
rhino...,A TERROR WEAPON (AS THEY ALL WERE) just below the height
of his elbows,...what seems to be a mouth...or death-head imagry....,ie---an
exposed row of teeth-like scales... that have no doubt puzzled generations
of researchers. I am unsure of the exact item to point to
for this detail; there may have been a cloth or belt
drapped over this upper-stomach area, but are most probably bridle cords,
giving the look of a lower-lip; teeth-like items are probably
reworked bronze coins of the empire.
PERHAPS THE WARHORSE WAS MORE OF A TERROR WEAPON THAN MOST HISTORIAN KNOW...IF INDEED THESE HORRIFIC LOOKS ARE STANDARD ISSUE (DEMON) IMAGRY.
(I'LL TRY TO GEY A PHOTO OR DRAWING...ON-LINE
TO SORT SOME OF THESE DETAILS OUT ///A BLOW-UP OF THIS AREA BETWEEN THE
ELBOWS WOULD SEEM TO POINT TO THE POSIBILITY OF A ROW OF SCALOPS(SMALL
3X4 INCH PLATES...IN A ROW...ATTACHED TOGETHER,SIDE BY SIDE,FORMING A
LARGE BELT...OF IMAGED PLATES.
