clip_image001Stephen E. Jones is starting a new series of postings. (See: The Shroud of Jesus?: Contents) He “will present the evidence both for and against it being the burial sheet of Jesus Christ, so the reader can make up his/her own mind.” To which he adds, “I myself am pursuaded by the evidence that the Shroud of Turin is the burial sheet of Jesus.”

And he writes: “As this will now be my primary focus on this blog, I will not continue my critique of Charles Freeman’s ‘The Turin Shroud and the Image of Edessa.’

He offers this table of contents:

  1. Introduction
  2. What is the Shroud of Turin?
  3. The Bible and the Shroud
  4. History and the Shroud
  5. Art and the Shroud
  6. Science and the Shroud
  7. The Sudarium of Oviedo
  8. Major features of the Shroud’s Image
  9. How was the Image Formed?
  10. . Objections
  11. . Questions
  12. . Conclusion
    And these rules of discourse:

Each topic above will be linked to a sub-contents page with that topic as its heading, and each topic on that sub-contents page will be linked to a page about that topic. I will continue to add topics as they occur to me. Past pages I will update as further thoughts occur to me, but it will not be practical for me to mention those updates. I will however indicate at the end of each page when it was last updated. It is probable that some pages will be out of logical order as new topics occur to me, but the contents pages will show their logical, if not chronological, order.

And now, faster than I can post, we have sub-contents for the Introduction in The Shroud of Jesus?: 1. Introduction.

I’m looking forward to this. We all should.
