Description

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

Tennent wrote this sermon on the Paraclete, which in Christian theology, refers to the Holy Spirit as an advocate, counselor or comforter. Tennent refers to the Bible verses John 16:7, Lamentations 1:16, and John 14:16 in his discussion of this subject.

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1744, then delivered it again in 1746, 1748, 1751, 1757, and 1761.
