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 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.

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. This reader-friendly edition is highly recommended and makes a welcome companion to the Smithsonian Institution's 2011 multilingual facsimile. The combination of Jesus's moral teachings and Thomas Jefferson's thought-provoking compilation of them-plus an informative introduction to Jefferson's religious and political views-makes it an excellent choice for both adults and younger readers.

The Jefferson Bible, was formerly titled The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth. The work is based upon Thomas Jefferson's belief that the ethical system of Jesus was the finest the world had ever seen and sought to separate those ethical teachings from the supernatural by eliminating sections of the New Testament containing supernatural aspects as well as perceived misinterpretations he believed had been intermixed in the account provided by the four Gospels. Jefferson presents these teachings, along with the essential events of the life of Jesus, in one continuous narrative.

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 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.
