This is, "Bears image of a naked man," part #15 of my online book, "The Shroud of Turin: The Burial Sheet of Jesus!" For more information see the Cover #1, Contents #2 and Preface #3, of this series.

[Contents #2] [Previous: Has been in Turin since 1578 #14] [Next: Man has wounds matching those of Jesus #16]

  1. What is the Shroud of Turin? #8
    1. Bears image of a naked man #15
The Shroud bears the faint[2], double image[3], front and back[4], head to head[5], of a naked man[6].

[Right (enlarge)[7]: Full-length image of the Shroud after the 2002 restoration.]

As can be seen, this muscular[8], bearded[9], man on the Shroud is entirely naked[10].

Although his hands are crossed covering his genitals[11], the back image shows that he is completely naked[12].

Jesus was crucified naked, His clothes having been taken off Him and divided between His Roman soldier executioners (Mt 27:35; Mk 15:24; Lk 23:34; Jn 19:23-24)[13].
