The gospel's all show that Jesus' dead body was wrapped with strips of cloth but His head and a type of hood over it:

"Then comes Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and sees the linen clothes lie, And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself." (John 20:6-7)

"Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves." (Luke 24:12)

If it was a single cloth, it would say 'cloth' not 'clothes'. And it was the custom of the Jews at the time to 'wrap' dead bodies in 'strips' of linen that had been saturated in sweet ointments to keep the body from smelling foul.

The shroud of Turin is not Jesus' burial cloth.

Here's why I say that.

God did not leave behind any artifacts of his involvement with the Jewish people, or of Jesus' time on the Earth. He did that on purpose so that nobody would make a cult religion out of "things," and lose the faith aspect of our Christian religion.

That's why there are no original Bible manuscripts penned in the authors' own hands. That's why the "Holy Grail" will never be found. That's why searching for Noah's ark, while immensely interesting, will always be fruitless. That's why the Ark of the Covenant is safely tucked away in Heaven. That's why those pieces of wood that are sold as slivers from Jesus' cross are just that ... pieces of wood. Moses' staff ... the brazen serpent ... the Garden of Eden ... none of those things will ever be found by man unless God has a very good reason for it ... and that's not likely to happen before the Millennial Kingdom.

Just look what happens when somebody sees an image of Mary in a tree, or on the side of a building. People go nuts, and begin worshiping the image ... expressly forbidden by God.

Just my humble opinion.
