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 reading scripture, by citing Deuteronomy 17:19, Luke 4:16, and Revelation 1:3. From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1750, then delivered it again in 1752, 1756, 1760, and 1763.
