You godda be kidding. There is ZERO evidence pinpointing a single person. This is not a slam dunk it is a dam slunk.
This is only in your dreams that it belongs to JC. If it is, it only goes to prove the theory sited in the book Jesus lived in India, where he didn't die on the cross at all but was cut down early, dudes paying off the Roman sentries, coating him with HEALING aloe and such and if he was in a cloth, then it was more like a big bandage that he regained consciousness from and maybe the cloth was stored and such but if anything the stains were the 2000 year old remains of the Aloe and other healing herbs said to have been put on him IN YOUR BIBLE.
But it has never been proven even that much because they don't know what the stains are made of or were made of 2000 years ago.
Jesus never died on the cross, he lived to found monasteries going up the silk road all the way to India. The bible story was just made up for good PR.
