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 topic of "manna," which, in a Biblical context, refers to food supplied miraculously by God, or spiritual nourishment such as the consecrated bread and wine consumed during the Eucharist. He begins the sermon by citing 1 Corinthians 10:3, "And did all eat the same spiritual meat."

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