Going for gold…

Sir William M. Ramsay
 Was an outstanding
 archeologist and New Testament scholar

His contributions
 to New Testament studies
 were many-sided and valuable.

He had no biblical or theological training

Just an unrivalled knowledge
 of the historical and geographical background
 of the apostolic age in Asia Minor

His archaeological research
 his mastery of first-century literature
 illuminated the New Testament

He was brought to faith by reason
 And became a defender of the historicity
 Of the books of the new Testament

An apologist "Avant la lettre"
 (15 March 1851, Glasgow – 20 April 1939)
 A scholar never outdated

He also won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1904

He discovered five new elements
 Helium, neon, argon, krypton, and xenon
 Known today as the noble gases

Going for gold...
 as Paul of Tarsus said
 long before him

    1. Ab ji,

      Sir Ramsay became advisor in setting up the Indian Institute of Science.
      He suggested Bangalore as an appropriate location for the institute.
      He aknowledged the Indian scientists, long before others did.

      Have blessed day
