"What did Jesus look like? Artists, scholars and millions of Christians around the world have been pondering the question for centuries. And on Tuesday, March 30, at 9/8c, HISTORY viewers may get closer to an answer than ever before, thanks to a special two-hour event.

The Real Face of Jesus follows a team of graphic experts as they use cutting-edge 3D software to bring a holy relic known as the Shroud of Turin to life. Many believe Jesus Christ was buried in this ancient linen cloth, which bears traces of blood and the faint, ghostly image of a man. With the help of modern technology, can HISTORY finally unlock the secrets of one of the world’s most scrutinized and controversial artifacts?

To attempt this feat, HISTORY turned to computer graphics artist Ray Downing of Studio Macbeth, who used photographs and digital animation to reconstruct Abraham Lincoln in 2009. As Ray and his team grapple with the task, we delve into the Shroud of Turin’s long history, along with the many perplexing questions that centuries of scientific research have failed to settle. How, for instance, did the figure’s imprint appear on the cloth? And how can we extract 3D information from a two-dimensional piece of linen?

In The Real Face of Jesus, HISTORY unveils the fruit of many months of labor, made possible by sophisticated computer tools in very capable hands: an accurate depiction of the man many believe to be Jesus Christ. For the devout and curious alike, this is a compelling story of transformation—a fascinating journey from the realm of creativity and imagination into the domain of science and technology"

Did anyone watch the episode of 'the real face of jesus' on history channel on March 30th?
I'm sure they will replay it over and over again though.

I watched the last 40 minutes of the show. It is amazing what computers can do. Is that really the face of Jesus? I suppose it depends on one's opinion of the authenticity, and age, of the shroud. Very interesting.

I saw some snippets from the show and got the idea. I have to say, whoever's face that is on the shroud, looks to be a very tall, imposing figure. Wouldn't surprise me if it were Jesus.

Remember in the transfiguration Jesus' body became like white light? I kind of see that happening to Him in the tomb before He rose and disappeared. Wouldn't that have kind of burned an image into the shroud like that?

It's very intriguing!!!

If you have cable, get a TVO box, you can record thing and watch them, the best part is being able to fast forward through commercials. It didn;t cost too much on top of my basic service, like only a dollar or two more.

My wife and I are so spoiled with the DVR, we don't even watch our favorite shows live anymore. We let them record so we can, like you say, fast forward through the commercials. It's a completely different experience being able to watch your 1 hour show in 40 minutes without breaks or interruption.

I'm moving tomorrow (friday) and I'm getting all new services, also because I wanted the highest speed net connection. :mrgreen: And I was offered a better deal through a new service, so I'm looking at their offers for cable etc. I want a dvr, and I'm hoping it will be within reasonable price since I have their 2 other highest packages. Maybe just maybe I'll get my dvr. yaaaaayyyy
Although I might become a TV junkie, being able to watch my shows in 40 minutes no commercials, oh I might just have to buy a new recliner. :geek:
You guys have some lucky wives if you ask me. All their shows they get to watch no matter if theyre home or busy, I need to join that club.
But you might not ever find me online. :geek:

I'm surprised all of you watched the show of Jesus in 3d though, wasn't sure anyone would have caught it, but they did keep advertising the showing. I'll be excited to check it out.
Did he look different from what you thought he would in the show?
You guys gave some good reviews, I'll have to watch it soon.

I'm thinking of downloading it...sounds interesting. No history channel here.

They should make a shroud of a living person and see how accurate it is to calibrate the process.

One small problem Sandra.
The cloth is dated around 1200 AD.
Now if this is wrong, then ALL the carbon dating that we use to detirmine the age of ALL antiquities, is wrong.
