If the Shroud of Turin is real does that violate the 2nd Commandment?
The Shroud of Turin. If authentic, would it be a violation of the 2nd commandment? Would representations of Jesus based on it be violations?
Not specifically asking for a debate on the authenticity, though you’re free to discuss. I’m more interested in thoughts on the hypothetical.
Exodus 20: 4-6
You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am fa jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
