The Garden Tomb and the Great Stone | The Shroud and the Garden Tomb
Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, Matthew 27:59 NIV
About 10 Shroud scholars, where contacted asking them what was the height of the man on the Turin shroud. All stated that the person on the Shroud of Turin was about 5 ft 11. Here are two of the original emails.
The shroud conforms exactly, to the shape and length of the burial space in the Tomb in the Garden.

WELL THE QUESTION ABOUT THE GARDEN TOMB IS AN INTERESTING ONE, FIRST THING I HAVE TO ADMIT IS THAT I HAVE NOT DONE A TRUE STUDY OF THE GARDEN TOMB MY SELF, ONLY THE SHROUD BUT UNDERSTANDING THAT THE HEIGHT OF THE MAN IN THE GARDEN TOMB IS 5FT 11 IS CERTAINLY COINCIDENTAL WITH WHAT I HAVE ALWAYS PERCEIVED THAT THE AVERAGE HEIGHT OF THE MAN OF THE SHROUD WHICH I HAVE ALWAYS PUT ABOUT 5 FT11.
