Description

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

This manuscript contains two sermons. The first sermon begins with reference to Ephesians 4:30, "And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption." The second sermon begins with reference to Hebrews 12:5, "And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him."

Note: The title of the second sermon is listed differently on the title page than on the cover; it translates roughly to "About Divine Chastisement."

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennant wrote these sermons in 1747, then delivered one or both of them again in 1752.
