George Hutcheson

(1615-1674)

 Hutcheson was noted for expounding the Scriptures with great clarity. C H Spurgeon wrote: “He distils the text, and gives his readers the quintessence, ready for use”.

An eminent preacher, George Hutcheson was a minister in Ayrshire and Edinburgh.  In 1662 he was removed from his congregation by Parliament together with a large number of others. This was for refusing to conform to the rule of bishops. His passing from this world was very short, only half an hour. His last words were: “The Lord has helped, and He will help me”.
