I’m not sure any of the other Anglican blogs picked up on Anglican Curmudgeon’s fascinating Easter post “Playing Back the Resurrection” where he offers detailed discussion (and tons of links) re: the latest news about the Shroud of Turin. Here’s an excerpt:
“When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth,” said Sherlock Holmes. As the evidence mounts for the genuineness of the Shroud, Christians may draw on increased support for their faith, even if faith ultimately rests on much more than mere evidence. To be able to reduce other logical possibilities to insignificance after all this lapse of time is indeed a gift to us from the first century, and represents the proper use of such an intimate artifact, as the evidence allows. It is not so much that the Shroud needs to be venerated. Rather, the point is that its ability to emerge enhanced, and further strengthened, from all the disputes over its authenticity merits all the attention thus far bestowed upon it. God’s Easter miracle is alive and well in the ongoing revelation which the Shroud represents for us today.
