The Jefferson Bible, Smithsonian Edition: The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth

The Jefferson Bible, or The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth as it is formally titled, was Thomas Jefferson's effort to extract what he considered the pertinent doctrine of Jesus by removing sections of the New Testament containing supernatural aspects as well as perceived misinterpretations he believed had been added by the Four Evangelists. Using a razor, Jefferson cut and arranged selected verses from the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John in chronological order, mingling excerpts from one text to those of another in order to create a single narrative. After completion of The Life and Morals, about 1820, Jefferson shared it with a number of friends, but he never allowed it to be published during his lifetime. The most complete form Jefferson produced was inherited by his grandson, Thomas Jefferson Randolph, and was published in 1895 by the National Museum in Washington.Once published in black-and-white facsimile by the Government Printing Office in 1900 as a gift for new members of Congress, the Jefferson Bible has never before been published in color in its complete form. The Jefferson Bible, Smithsonian Edition is an exact facsimile reproduction based on the original copy in the Smithsonian collections.

The Jefferson Bible - The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth

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.

THE JEFFERSON BIBLE What Thomas Jefferson Selected as THE LIFE AND MORALS OF JESUS OF NAZARETH

In 1820, Thomas Jefferson worked for months, often by candlelight, carefully cutting the pages of several Bibles to remove the life story and the teachings of Jesus, which he called "the most benevolent code of morals which has ever been offered to man". He then reorganized the verses from all four gospels chronologically and pasted them into a new book that he titled, The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth Extracted Textually from the Gospels in Greek, Latin, French and English. Too controversial to be published during Jefferson's lifetime, The Jefferson Bible eliminated the virgin birth, angels, Jesus's miracles, and his resurrection. This edition, The Jefferson Bible: What Thomas Jefferson Selected as the Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth,includes The Jefferson Bible in English--nicely formatted for ease of reading--with an introduction to Jefferson's life and complex religious views by Elizabeth Campbell, and an index showing the passages that Jefferson selected and how he reorganized them.

The New Jefferson Bible: The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth in Modern English

Over two hundred years ago, Thomas Jefferson began to carve away at the King James Bible with a razor—an action considered by some then and today to be blasphemous—out of a desire to produce a linear narrative of the life of Jesus of Nazareth free of claims of divinity or mentions of miraculous events. The work he produced, The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth, has since come to be known as The Jefferson Bible. The words and story of Jesus of Nazareth as compiled by Thomas Jefferson are now available in modern English for the first time. Dan Marshall has pored over the Open English Bible translation to bring you those verses selected by Jefferson himself. The OEB translation was released in 2010 by the Open English Bible Project (www.OpenEnglishBible.org). Written at a high school reading level, it was designed with usability, readability, and accuracy in mind. Thanks to these modern efforts, you can understand the Gospel passages culled by Thomas Jefferson in a way never before possible. Learn the story of Jesus as viewed by one of America's most well-known Founding Fathers. Immediately following The New Jefferson Bible, Dan Marshall presents his vision of the teachings and life story of the person known as Jesus, written in paragraphs instead of verses.
