Sabbatum Excerpt: Sir William Ramsay on the Trustworthiness of Luke’s Gospel Account


William Ramsey, a noted historian and archaeologist, set out to prove that Luke’s history was filled with errors but emerged from his study surprised, saying, “Luke’s history is unsurpassed in trustworthiness.” He discovered that Cyrenius was twice governor of Syria, first when Christ was born and again at a later period. The cycle of census shows that the approximate one recorded by Luke was in 6-5 B.C., which is the commonly accepted date of Christ’s birth. [1]
