The first edition of religious and political reformer John Jebb's (1736-1786) pamphlet addressing criticisms levelled at his Cambridge University lecture series on New Testament scripture. Jebb's lessons were regarded with disfavour by his colleges for their promotion of Socinianism and the rejection of the Trinity, with some forbidding their undergraduates from attending.
