Replica of the Shroud of Turin on Display in Freeport

FREEPORT (WIFR) -- We don't have to travel halfway around the world to see one of the most well-known holy relics. There's a replica right here in the Stateline.

Russ Breault who's an international expert on the Shroud of Turin brought a replica of the cloth to Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Freeport.

The Shroud of Turin is the cloth that Jesus was believed to have been buried in. Breault talked about the technology he's used to prove those claims.

Pastor Stephen Precht says the presentation is a chance for all Christians to learn more about their faith.

"This could lend further indication that yes, everything the scripture says is true. It would also reflect to me the torture, the barbarity that Jesus went through, through the beatings and the cross as it would be reflected in the shroud itself," Precht said.

Breault’s research on the shroud has been featured on the History and Discovery channels as well as on CBS News.
