Crown of Thorns / Shroud of Turin

May God Bless You Today, and Every Day: Crown of Thorns replica placed upon a second-generation photograph of the Shroud of Turin. Part of the Wonders of the Bible collection. The photo is so clear that if you enlarge it, you can see the herringbone weave pattern of the linen shroud itself. The reverse contains this prayer, approved by the Archbishop of Turin during the 1933 exposition year: "O Lord Jesus, Who, didst leave to us upon the Holy Shroud the Image of Thy Holy Face … together with the imprint of Thy Sacred Body … tortured and put to death for our salvation: grant, through the merits of Thy Sufferings, that, venerating on earth, the Image of Thy Holy Face upon which the very angels long to gaze, we may be made worthy to contemplate It forever in Heaven. Amen."

Latin and Hebrew Bible

Here is an interesting Latin and Hebrew *New Testament* Bible page from the 1600's that I have in my collection. It reads from the Gospel of St. John, chapter 8, verses 1 to 12: "Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." -- May God Bless You Today -- and EVERY DAY! Show kindness to ALL others, and love them … as Jesus loves you. Love, Pop-pop (Frank DeFreitas, Wonders of the Bible).

Jesus Calms the Waters: View-Master

View-Master 3-D Bible Stories: "Suddenly a strong wind gusted! Tall waves broke over the boat! It began to fill with water. The disciples woke Jesus complaining, "Teacher, do you not care that we are about to drown?" He stood up. "Peace!" he commanded the storm. "Be still!" The wind fell. The sea was calm. The disciples were filled with awe and whispered, "Who is this Man that even the winds and the waves obey him?"

Jesus Christ Passion Play 1930's

The Passion Play … a 3D Tru-Vue filmstrip from the 1930's. This open air pageant drama was presented in the years 1932, 1933 and 1934 in various parts of the United States with a cast of more than 1,000 persons. I took this photo through one of the Tru-Vue stereoscope eyepieces. Before television and other forms of entertainment, 3D stereoscopes used to provide families with evening entertainment. God Bless You Today … and EVERY DAY! AND … remember to love others, just as Jesus Christ loves you.
