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 sermon listed second on the title page comes first in the text.

"On Christ as refiner" begins with reference to Malachi 3:2-3, "But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness."

"On doing all things in the name of Christ" begins with reference to Colossians 3:17, "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him." Tennent also cites 1 Peter 4:12-17.

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote these sermons in 1748, then delivered one or both of them again in 1749 or 50, and 1759.
