The Jefferson Bible Life And Morals Of Jesus Of Nazareth Annotated Edition Book Description:

This is the extended and annotated edition including * a detailed annotation about the history of the Bible The Jefferson Bible, or The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth as it is formally titled, was a book constructed by Thomas Jefferson in the latter years of his life by cutting and pasting numerous sections from various Bibles as extractions of the doctrine of Jesus. Jefferson's composition excluded sections of the New Testament containing supernatural aspects as well as perceived misinterpretations he believed had been added by the Four Evangelists, but others reject this claim, stating that his 1804 work was simply intended to instruct Native Americans about Jesus' moral teaching while his second work was for his own personal study.

The Jefferson Bible Smithsonian Edition Book Description:

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, Smithsonian Edition is as beautiful an object as was so painstakingly crafted by Thomas Jefferson himself.

In 1895, the Smithsonian Institution under the leadership of librarian Cyrus Adler purchased the original Jefferson Bible from Jefferson's great-granddaughter Carolina Randolph for $400. A conservation effort commencing in 2009, in partnership with the museum's Political History department, allowed for a public unveiling in an exhibit open from November 11, 2011, through May 28, 2012, at the National Museum of American History.

The Jefferson Bible The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth Book 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.

The Jefferson Bible Book Description:

The life and times of a uniquely American testament In his retirement, Thomas Jefferson edited the New Testament with a penknife and glue, removing all mention of miracles and other supernatural events. Inspired by the ideals of the Enlightenment, Jefferson hoped to reconcile Christian tradition with reason by presenting Jesus of Nazareth as a great moral teacher—not a divine one. Peter Manseau tells the story of the Jefferson Bible, exploring how each new generation has reimagined the book in its own image as readers grapple with both the legacy of the man who made it and the place of religion in American life. Completed in 1820 and rediscovered by chance in the late nineteenth century after being lost for decades, Jefferson's cut-and-paste scripture has meant different things to different people. Some have held it up as evidence that America is a Christian nation founded on the lessons of the Gospels. Others see it as proof of the Founders' intent to root out the stubborn influence of faith. Manseau explains Jefferson's personal religion and philosophy, shedding light on the influences and ideas that inspired him to radically revise the Gospels. He situates the creation of the Jefferson Bible within the broader search for the historical Jesus, and examines the book's role in American religious disputes over the interpretation of scripture. Manseau describes the intrigue surrounding the loss and rediscovery of the Jefferson Bible, and traces its remarkable reception history from its first planned printing in 1904 for members of Congress to its persistent power to provoke and enlighten us today.

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

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. The Marshall edit is half the length of Jefferson's book. In holding with the vision of rejecting the supernatural, the teachings of Jesus are offered free of mentions of eternal life, threats of punishment, and references to a deity. Do the moral lessons of Jesus stand when separated from the influence of religious authority? Readers must decide for themselves. Get The New Jefferson Bible: The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth in Modern English today. It's the most famous story you've yet to read.

The Jefferson Bible for the 21st Century Book Description:

The Bible has many modern versions, either carefully constructed into English from a word-by-word or a thought-by-thought basis. The derivative works almost never get that level of attention. Thomas Jefferson rearranged the sermons, parables and teachings of Jesus into a chronological sequence - leaving out the miracles, angels, demons, and the resurrection. His belief was that the moral message of Jesus was still a supremely powerful one - capable of standing on its own. This volume is a modernized update that you can think of as the textbook for "Essential Jesus 101". Many notes about Thomas Jefferson's original book and a commentary on Deism are also included.

The Jefferson Bible Life And Morals Of Jesus Of Nazareth Book Description:

The book is Jefferson's notions as to the life and doctrines of Jesus, and it is significant that he ends the Life with the laying of Jesus in the sepulchre. The resurrection formed no part of Jefferson's belief. The doctrines selected by Jefferson as commending themselves to him are the precepts which the Christians sedulously avoid quoting. As a whole, he considered the doctrines of Jesus defective, and to have been made worse by the Christians, and so made a wee little book of the doctrines he deemed the best.
