Description

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

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon on the fifth commandment ("Honor they father and thy mother") in 1745, then delivered it again in 1748, 1756, and possibly another date that is obscured. The first few pages appear to contain unrelated notes pertaining to Colossians 3:5-6; however the main text begins on page 6 with reference to Ephesians 6.
