Description

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

Tennent begins this sermon on the subject of patience by citing six Bible verses: Luke 21:19, 1 Thessalonians 5:14, 1 Timothy 6:11, James 5:11, Hebrews 10:36 and Hebrews 12:1. From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1747, then delivered it again in 1748, 1749, 1750 or 1751, 1752, 1759, 1763, and 1764.
