Description

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

This manuscript contains three sermons by Tennent. The first, on the subject of divine judgement, begins with reference to Isaiah 26:9. The second, on the duties of the afflicted, begins with reference to Lamentations 3:39-40. The third, on obedience and acceptance of divine correction, begins with reference to Zephaniah 3:2 and Jeremiah 7:28-29.

From dates noted on the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote these sermons in 1746, then delivered one or more of them again in 1751, 1753, 1755, and 1757.
