A few things always to keep in mind.
No one is unbiased or bias free, including ourselves.
Approach with an open mind to ALL facets, including the "supernatural".
Absence of evidence is just that and for historical items, very common.
21st century writings of historical events do NOT equate to how ancient man viewed and wrote about historical events.
There is a very real push to discredit anything that makes Christianities supernatural claims true AND there is also a very real desire to prove the supernatural by some Christians.

Christianity, the very core and central tenets, ARE supernatural and there is NO WAY around that.
If Christ did NOT die and did NOT come back to life then all hope is in vain.
It is just that simple.

You can see that there is a lot riding on something that can possibly lend validity to that claim.

Remember always that evidence is NOT proof, on either side of the argument.

What is the point, for example, of all the attempts to try to falsify the radiocarbon dating? If the Shroud is miraculous, it could end up with any radiocarbon date God liked, and maybe he just liked 1350.

But wouldn't God be a deceiver then? Doesn't sound right.

Possibly, but that's not the point of this particular argument, which is that God does not need Physics to perform miracles.
