DescriptionThe notes appear to be expository commentary on each verse of 1 Thessalonians as far as chapter 5, verse 11. The location and date, almost always Northop (or some variation of this spelling) suggest that these are Sparke's notes preparatory to a series of sermons on this epistle delivered on consecutive Sundays.
Source of DataJeanne Shami
Other NoteThe date is uncertain, but subsequent notes are for consecutive sermons, the second in the series being preached on 17 November 1650. Location is not specified, but where it is in the manuscript, the location is Northop.
