Publisher's Description

In the early nineteenth century Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States and principal author of the Declaration of Independence, conceived the idea of extracting a gospel purified of what he saw as extraneous philosophical, mythological, and theological elements. To do so, he took verses from the four canonical gospels and arranged them into a single narrative, focusing on the actual words of Jesus. This work was never published during Jefferson's lifetime, but was inherited by his grandson and printed for the first time in the early twentieth century. The original bound manuscript, often referred to as "the Jefferson Bible," is held by the United States National Museum in Washington.

    No Other Review Appears to be Factually Based - Jefferson was a Christian

    First of all: Thomas Jefferson was a lifelong Christian; he was NEVER a deist. If you want to learn the truth, read his own original writings, not the heavily edited and intentionally misleading propaganda from atheist liberals who do not want him to be remembered as the Christian he was. His goal, as written in his own words, was to reduce the Bible down to the teachings of Jesus for use specifically in sharing the Bible with the north american Indians (who, obviously, had no western education). The reason was simple: if the entire text of the Bible were given to them, then they might only read Leviticus, or only the lineage portion, and then never truly understand the most important part and main purpose of the Bible: salvation through Jesus. His effort produced a work that made it possible to share the Bible with American Indians. Since then, liberals have created lies to push the agenda that he did this to eliminate the "magic" from the man who lived in Nazareth. Unfortunately, too many Americans are exceedingly lazy and choose to be lied to, and in turn, propagate these Jefferson lies. If you doubt this, then go to the source, read the man's own writings; not some liberal professor's drivel. Jefferson was a Christian. This book attests to his devotion of spreading the gospel to the natives. Any printed version that states or implies anything contrary to this is a lie.

    It focuses on what Jesus would want us to focus on. It covers all the key points of Jesus' teachings. Jefferson was a genius.

    When writing of Jesus, what text is not opinion?

    All editions of Jefferson's modified Bible is an excellent read. Christianity would have done far better if this book were given more attention. It focuses on what many believe what Jesus wanted us all to focus on. His words, his teachings, not others. It's more in tune to what modern ears will appreciate.

    This is NOT a Bible.

    Please note that this is NOT a Bible. In fact it is a compilation of parts of the actual Christian Bible that Jefferson used to form his own opinions and express them to others in hope to encourage certain moral behaviors. It should be only used as entertainment. The previous reviewer is correct...
