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 by Tennent. The first sermon, on the subject of those whose faith is weak, begins by citing Matthew 8:26 and Mark 4:40. The second sermon, on those whose faith is strong, begins by citing Matthew 15:28 and Romans 4:20.

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote these sermons in 1747, then delivered one or both of them again in 1748, 1752, and 1759.
