Overview

The Jefferson Bible by Thomas Jefferson

The Jefferson Bible. THOMAS JEFFERSON (1743-1826)-author, statesman, and third president of the United States-was a deist, a believer in, at best, impersonal, transcendental god, who did not take a personal interest in the daily events of humanity. But Jefferson took great comfort from the teachings of Jesus, and so, by editing and rearranging the traditional books of the Bible, Jefferson here retells the story of Jesus in chronological form, removing all supernatural elements but retaining the beauty and the wisdom of the philosophy of Jesus. Jefferson, a deeply private person, refused to let his Bible beyond a circle of close friends, so it remained unpublished until 1895.

By removing the supernateral elements of the narative and focusing on what Jesus acctually said, Jefferson has created a Gospel for all people, believers and skeptics alike. A truly enlighenting text that helps show what our founding fathers really did believe. Christian ethics and Reformation ideals of self-discovery at its very best.

This version of the Jefferson Bible-or as Jefferson titled it, The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth, is a fascinating document.This is Jefferson's version of the Gospels as he thought they should have been -with all miracles excluded. In this work Jesus is a philosopher, not a savior. This Nook book lacks an introduction or any notes, both of which would have been very helpful. Still for a dollar, you are getting an important historical document.

Pres. Thomas Jefferson was an independent thinker when it came to religion. His Bible is a modern day "cut & paste". I found it very interesting. Don't iss the biography of Jefferson at the end of the book.
