Vatican researcher discovers alleged Jesus’ death certificate on Holy Shroud

“The contents of these words refer to the death of a person who is called in Iesoys Nnazarennos the name that we find lying in the 4 Gospels.”

In 1978 a group of experts found some letters around the face displayed on the shroud. Barbara Frale has now decoded them. The partial words are in three languages, Greek, Latin and Aramaic. To understand what they mean, Barbara Frale has studied Palestine Roman law of the year 30.

“The body of a man sentenced to death could only be returned to the family after a year had gone by in a common grave handled by a court in Jerusalem. After that one year, the body could be returned to the family and go to the family tomb.”

In the case of Jesus Christ, Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus asked governor Pontius Pilate not to leave the corpse in the common grave and instead use Joseph of Arimathea’s family tomb.

“They still needed to ‘tag’ the body because other members of Joseph of Arimathea’s family could be buried there. The deceased could not stay there long. After the 12 months it  had to be returned to relatives.”

So, once the body was wrapped in the shroud, strips of papyrus with large letters on it were place on the head, to make note of the person deceased.

“The name of the deceased, the date and the motive behind the death sentence was written on it, along with the date when the body could be returned to the respective family.”

That data coincides with what’s in the Gospels. According to the expert, these strips of papyrus were glued to the shroud for centuries and after various chemical reactions, some traces of ink went to the linen.

“The ink used to write the words include some kind of metal, and there has been a chemical reaction with the cellulous of the linen and with the image on the shroud.”

Barbara Frale wanted to prove her hypothesis and turned to a group of palaeographers. Without telling them where the letters originated they confirm the letters were written in the first century, from the time of Jesus.
