Description

Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening.

Tennent begins this sermon on the holy judges of the world by citing 1 Corinthians 6:2, "Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?"

From dates noted in the manuscript, it appears that Tennent wrote this sermon in 1744, and delivered it again in 1749 and 1759.
