Feature Interview – In this second part of two episodes focusing on the Shroud of Turin, emergency medicine physician Dr. Scott French shares what we know about Jesus’ Passion and Crucifixion based on scientific and medical evidence from the Shroud. Also in this episode: Medical Trivia (Answer at 48:08) – On the Shroud of Turin, there is a large blood stain on the right side of the chest. This blood likely came from the heart but had to travel through the space between the lungs and the chest wall to reach the skin surface. What do we call this space between the lungs and chest wall that comes from the Greek word meaning “side” or “flank”? This space is important, because when fluid fills this area, breathing becomes significantly compromised. ------ www.redeemerradio.com www.cathmed.org Follow us on Facebook: @DoctorDoctorShow Submit your question(s): Text (Holy Cross College text line) - 260-436-9598 Online - www.RedeemerRadio.com/Doctor E-mail - [email protected] Subscribe to the Podcast: iTunes | Google Play | SoundCloud | RSS
