I did a quick Google search of "24,000 historical documents outside of the bible" and I think you missed a key point. Those 24,000 documents are just the number of manuscript copies of the bible. They're not historical documents relating to the bible. They ARE the bible. And that's understandable because after the bible was canonized, a massive amount of copies were ordered and distributed by the Roman Empire. But just having more copies of the bible don't make it more valid.

You are correct. It was my mistake by claiming they are "outside" of the Bible documents.

A Christian can be crushed gazing at the picture of Mary standing at the foot of the cross, watching her beloved son suffocate and die. But in that vision, she stands there for hours, patiently enduring her suffering. For two millennia, she has been a role model for Christians, a woman who practiced obedience in the most difficult of human circumstances, with fervent hope for what this sacrifice will offer all mankind as it struggles with sin.

This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
