Description

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

"The Law of God" sets forth the ever-present dangers of pervasive sin in the world, in diverting people from moral law and consequent harmony with the purity of God, and the veneration due him as creator. The sermon draws from Greek vocabulary and Judaic law, and is supported by close reading of relevant Bible passages.

Tennent wrote this sermon in 1742 or 1743, but notations on the manuscript indicate he delivered it on other occasions in 1751, 1755, 1758 and 1761.
