The Turin Shroud, believed to have wrapped Jesus after his crucifixion, has been used with AI to create a lifelike image of him.
The cloth, which's authenticity remains debated, was last displayed 90 years ago, drawing 25,000 people to Turin's Cathedral.
The AI image depicts a man with long hair and a beard, wearing a robe.
Using AI, the Daily Star has collaborated with Midjourney to unveil a realistic representation of Jesus from the Turin Shroud.
Popular Lee Strobel, posted the picture on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Some have viewed it as a scam, while others believed it held Jesus's blood. The Roman Catholic Church has never fully confirmed or denied its authenticity.
In 1390, French bishop Pierre d'Arcis wrote to Pope Clement VII, expressing his belief that the Shroud was essentially "a clever sleight of hand." He argued that it was more probable that someone had "falsely declared this to be the actual shroud in which Jesus was wrapped in the tomb."
In 1979, the Turin Commission questioned if the stains were pigment, not blood. Then, in 2018, forensic scientists suggested it was artificially made in the Journal of Forensic Science.Carbon dating suggests it may date from 1260AD to 1390AD.
