Nathaniel N. Whiting (June 19, 1792 – June 18, 1872) was a Baptist Preacher in New York. He was a professor of Biblical Languages at Lexington College and worked on Bible translation.[1] He supported the work of William Miller[citation needed], but shied away from fixing a particular date for Christ's return.[2] For a time he was editor of The Williamsburg Daily Gazette.[3] It is said that he was the first man who ever reported a sermon for a newspaper.[4]
