Description

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

"On Christ as the head" shares a title with an earlier sermon by Tennent, and may simply be a newer version. Tennent begins this sermon with reference to Ephesians 1:22 and 5:23. From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1750, then delivered it again in 1758 and 1760.
