Top Three Unsolved Mysteries of Christianity

Want to know the leading unsolved mysteries on Christianity? Believer in faith or not, you may have encountered a mysterious occurrence which had put your faith in a world filled with enigma.

Here are the top 3 unsolved mysteries on Christianity that are cold case sure to have been encountered by you one time or another:

The Shroud of Turin

The Shroud of Turin

It’s a linen cloth bearing the image, as multitude of Catholics believed, to be that of Jesus Christ, placed upon him at the time after his burial. It is presently under lock and key at the cathedral of Saint John the Baptist royal chapel in Turin, Italy.

The mystery lies in the unavailability through scientific investigations, like that of the radiocarbon dating test conducted in the year 1988, to confirm its exact origin. Debates persist as to how the image got imprinted on the cloth. And further if indeed the image depicted be that of Jesus Christ and if the same cloth be the same linen used to wrap him at his deathbed.

The Divine Trinity

The Divine Trinity

It is a Catholic or Christian belief that there are three persons under one God. The trinity is said to be consisting of the triumvirate of God the father, God the son and of God the Holy Spirit.

Bedrock to Catholicism is the Bible and on its pages can be found verses and statements which aided in sowing this mystery. In John 14:6-11, it is said that Jesus made the statement that He is “the way the truth and the life. And that No one can come to the Father except through him.” Adding to the mystery is the statement made by Jesus contained in the same verse where it is said that Jesus mentioned to Phillip that whoever had seen him had seen the Father.  

Further increasing the mystery are the verses found in Isaiah. 45: 21, 22. It is quoted "Who hath told it from ancient time? Have not the Lord (Jehovah)? And there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside Me. Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else."

The mystery in the holy trinity rests in finding no common ground as to the veracity of having three persons in one god and that of the believer taking separate faiths on each one of the trinity as god, hence, the divisiveness in spiritual differences.

The Holy Grail

The Holy Grail

Theories abound that it is the mystical cup or chalice which have been utilized by Jesus and his disciples during the last supper in taking a drink and that it is the cup also utilized in catching the blood of Jesus on the cross.


Central to fanning this mystery into its current celebrated status are the books “The Da Vinci Code” by Dan Brown and “The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail’ authored by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln. A wide perception persists that the cup holds supernatural powers or that it could be used for that elusive fountain of youth.
