Zugibe, who is internationally renowned for his work in forensic pathology, told us that he has been studying the Shroud of Turin for more than 52 years.
Zugibe then described the scourging of Christ — 39 lashes by an instrument with three sharp metal prongs — whose markings in fact are evident on the shroud.
With detailed analysis and experimentation, Dr. Zugibe illustrated his assertion that the nails in fact were not driven into the wrists but the palm of the hand near the thumb (this is significant as the Bible states that none of the Savior’s bones would be broken).
