To every honest seeker of historical truth

The body is Greek, but the soul is Semitic.

Only the Gospel accounts are the key that can decode and interpret the Shroud.

imageFrancesco Agnoli offers us a fascinating perspective, Gospels and Shroud, an extraordinary coincidence in La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana. (The article title above and the extracts below are from a Google translation):

Philology has deepened the study of "linguistic forms" ancient identifying some typical structures of Aramaic (oral language, the dialect of Galilee) and Hebrew (written language, used by the scribes of Judea), the original language spoken by Jesus.

These structures language are foreign to Greek literature, so they are a clear sign of Semitic origin of the Gospels.We can say that the gospels were thought in Aramaic and then translated into Greek.

The body is Greek, but the soul is Semitic.

[…]

We thought, Emanuela Marinelli and myself, to enhance the display of the Shroud to be held in Turin from 19 April to 24 June 2015, offering to every honest seeker of historical truth, in one book, the most important historical knowledge of Jesus of Nazareth.

It is clear that the Shroud without the Gospel accounts remains an indecipherable enigma.

Only the Gospel accounts are the key that can decode and interpret the Shroud.

Then it becomes essential scientific investigation and documented not only on the Shroud, but also the authenticity of the Gospels.

    Now the Chaldean News, a newspaper published by the Chaldean community in Metro Detroit has a great story about the outstanding Shroud of Turin exhibit: A Fascinating Mystery: Exhibit Explores the Shroud of Turin. (Chaldeans, according to the newspaper are indigenous people of Iraq, Eastern-rite Christians who speak Aramaic. There are over 100,000 thousand of them in this part of Michigan.

The history of the shroud can now be observed at a special exhibition at the former St. John United Methodist Church in Royal Oak until August 17. The entire church has been transformed into a 6,000-square-foot gallery.

The exhibit is guided by an audio tour that is one hour long in English, and 1 hour and 25 minutes long in Arabic. It is also available in Russian and Spanish.

“With a headset, it is just you in there,” said Jose Juan Garrigó, CEO of Immersive Planet, Inc., the company that designed the exhibition. “We are currently working on Polish and French Canadian, and are interested in making an audio recording in Aramaic.”

The entire script has already been translated into Aramaic, but the voice for it has not been found. A male Chaldean who can read Aramaic with a powerful, theatrical voice is being sought to fill the role.
