Preachingsca. 1698-06-28 (old) - Broad Oak - Occasion not identified; Since no preaching information is given in the manuscript, this information is conjectural, but this second sermon on Hebrews 11:4 is likely connected to the previous one, which was most likely preached at Broad Oak on 28 June 1696.
Additional Material
Print Editions / WitnessesA sermon by Matthew Henry on Hebrews 11:4 has been published, namely the funeral sermon he preached for his father, Philip Henry: "A Sermon Preached at Broad Oak, June 28, 1696, On Occasion of the Death of the Rev. Philip Henry, M. A. [...]" in The Miscellaneous Works of the Rev. Matthew Henry (London, 1833), pp. 151-163. The printed text might be related to this manuscript sermon.
DescriptionSermon is neatly written out but more briefly than the previous one. There are small spaces within lines that may indicate material left out. The preacher is not named, but the sermon seems to be a continuation of Matthew Henry's previous sermon in the volume.
