Sir William M. Ramsay
Was an outstanding
archeologist and New Testament scholar
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A scholar never outdated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
