Also, to that part#2 I have just now added the following conclusion:
“In conclusion, I am astonished how weak Calvin’s arguments against the Shroud were. As we have seen, they were mostly based on the Argument from Silence fallacy. Indeed, the Gospel writers’ silence on what happened to Jesus’ burial garments, having been unnecessarily mentioned as “linen” in all four Gospels (Mt 27:57-60; Mk 15:42-46; Lk 23:50-54; Jn 19:38-42) at Jesus’ burial, but then being obscurely mentioned in only two Gospels (Lk 24:12; Jn 20:5-7), points to their deliberate silence. That is, a silence that would: 1) explain to Christians where the Shroud and Sudarium came from; but 2) conceal from non-Christians that the disciples had recovered them!”
Thanks, Stephen. Keep up the excellent work.
