Jonathan Edwards – The Sorrows of the Bereaved Spread Before Jesus

This is a funeral sermon for Pastor William Williams, the uncle of Jonathan Edwards 1665-1741. William Williams is the pastor who most likely beseeched Solomon Stoddard to appeal to Jonathan Edwards to be his successor at Northhampton. Interestingly, however, it was his sons – for example Solomon Williams – that turned against Jonathan Edwards in 1751 and were instrumental in removing him as the pastor.
