In the past, I have demonstrated how 3D laser holographic images can be viewed in 3D with a stereo microscope -- and examined as if the object recorded were really there. Presently, I'm working to show how the Shroud of Turin cloth material can be visually examined under 3D microscope -- by anyone, anywhere in the world -- by recording it as a series of holograms. The Shroud can stay safely and securely where it is, and the *holograms* can be sent to labs around the world. To the researches, with a resolution of up to 10,000 lines per millimeter, it will appear as if a piece of the actual, physical Shroud is under their microscope. Even under very high magnification. But the Shroud material is not there at all, it is a hologram. This method is a form of laser holographic nondestructive testing. Stay tuned for more information. God Bless you today and everyday.

JOHN 14:6 -- "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
Here is a unique piece of Bible history from the Wonders of the Bible ephemera collection: a scripture card containing an alphabet and John chapter 14, verse 6, printed in Braille. It was published by the American Bible Society in New York City, and is dated to the late 1940's. The ABS began this service in 1835, and by the year 1948 it had distributed over 200,000 Braille Bibles in the USA, and over 21,000 overseas. Learn all about how God uses science and technology to communicate the Bible -- past, present and future -- by following Wonders of the Bible. God Bless You today and always!

John 18:31-33 " Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death: That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die. Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?" Read more ...
LEARN: Here is a museum-quality reproduction of what is known as the "St. John Fragment" or "Papyrus 52" (University of Manchester Rylands Library). Written in Greek, the recto (front) contains parts of John 18:31-33, and the verso (back) contains verses 37-38. This fragment from a papyrus codex was found in Oxyrhynchus (Behnesa), Egypt, by Bernard Pyne Grenfell and Arthur Surridge Hunt. It is the earliest known fragment of the New Testament in any language (2nd century [early] 100-150 AD). Early Christian papyri from Egypt represent the earliest surviving indisputable physical evidence for Christianity and the Christian Gospel. This piece is part of the Wonders of the Bible collection.

Matthew 15:21-28: "Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour." LEARN MORE...
1960s: Jesus Answers a Prayer "in three dimensions and in lively color". A plastic stereo viewer and six color-film slides, all contained within a box. Made by Stori-Views, noted as "a modern version of grandma's stereoscope" on the box. I have many different kinds of stereoscopes in the Wonders of the Bible collection. They date from the mid 1800's through the end of the 20th century.
