John Wesley Sermons

John Wesley, (1703-1791), Oil on canvas, painted in Tewksbury, England, by an unknown artist in 1771.

John Wesley (1703-1791) founded Methodism. A prolific writer, he printed several volumes of his sermons during his lifetime. The published sermons either were rewritten from ones that he had preached or were written specifically for print.

Note: We use Thomas Jackson's numbering for John Wesley's sermons (the text is from the 1872 edition).
