New biblical studies solving important Gospel contradictions
plus a few articles on the Turin Shroud:
John's temple mantle with Pharisaic enlarged border - without invisible repair -
and showing his high priestly breastplate

"Freely you have received, freely give."
A series of twelve biblical articles, in which the full historicity of the Gospels is assumed, shows that hitherto seeming contradictions between important Gospel texts are really no contradictions at all.
Both the four Easter Gospels and the two Nativity Gospels appear to be mutually completely complying, in detail, when some biasing presuppositions are set aside and replaced by some simple ideas, corroborated by many arguments. No contra-arguments exist. The author's Catholic bishop considered the articles to be scientific and therefore felt no need to grant or deny an Imprimatur.

The meaning of three Hebrew letters ayin-aleph-nun ( I X Y ) on the petalon beneath the chin is described in "The seam and missing corners of the Turin Shroud as characteristics of John Mark's temple garment".
