Gary H. Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures
Isaiah 50



Verses 1-11

Isaiah 50:6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

Isaiah 50:6 — "and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair" - Comments- There is no specific verse in the New Testament that describes Jesus crucifixion that involved His beard being plucked out. However, the Shroud of Turin, which is believed to be the actual burial cloth of the Lord Jesus Christ, reveals a man who has been crucified. The image of the bearded face in this cloth shows that some of the beard has been pulled off. This was confirmed after years of scientific research that has taken place on the Shroud of Turin. 68]
