742 thought on “The Jefferson Bible

  1. This is a condensation of the New Testament It is written based on the idea that anything which Jesus didn t actually say is legally hearsay That means, from Jefferson s viewpoint, it isn t admissible as evidence of what Christianity means A complimentary copy of the Jefferson Bible, printed by the United States Government printing office, used to be given to all freshmen Senators and Congressmen until the Supreme Court said it was against the rules of impartiality toward religious belief.


  2. A very good summary of the words and teaching of Jesus Christ Appears to have been taken from the Gospels of Matthew and Luke In earlier editions there was a lot of repetition because the authors of Matthew and Luke were using the same source A document written by someone who was an actual witness to a lot of Jesus Christ teachings But in this latest edition of The Jefferson Bible the word for word repetitions have been eliminated A big improvement.Actually Thomas Jefferson was a Diest with a so [...]


  3. I had always heard about the Jefferson Bible When it became available in an ebook, it was the time for me to read it It s interesting When you consider that Jefferson s original book was a cut and glue book, it is amazing that we can see what he did Jefferson was a true genius and ahead of his time in many ways I m so glad this treasure survived so we can enjoy it.


  4. I haven t read much of it yet Since I am not a member of the Abraham religions Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and haven t read their holy books I don t know how to compare it As I understand the history behind this book Thomas Jefferson wanted to remove parts of the Abraham groups holy books telling improbable tales and focus on what this religious group actually stands for.The 5 star rating is because Jefferson s idea is great.Unfortunately people of religion don t seem to know what their cor [...]


  5. It s a great read, just not the Wilder Publication version, stay away from this one, the print is very tiny and it s not very complete It s missing the entire preface and maybe There are many others that may be truer without being the the Smithsonian one which is a bit hard to follow Thompson from 1902 is online and free but I bought the Wilder because I wanted a print version.


  6. Jefferson was an incredible man in many, many respects Monticello is still one of the very most thoughtfully laid out, planned and executed working farms ever built Even back during the beginnings of The United States, Jefferson was interested in knowing why the main religions of the world are always at each others throats, instead of being unified in purpose He wanted to know what the differences between the Holy writings of the Bible Christian , The Tanakh Jewish , and The Koran Muslim were Ov [...]


  7. The seller transaction was perfect No problem there.I ve read a lot about Jefferson s cut and paste bible This is a far cry from what I ve read This is of a Cliff s Notes of the KJV of the current bible Perhaps, there are many versions of Jefferson s bible I really didn t like this one.


  8. Thomas Jefferson was a Diest, not so much a traditional Christian and his version of the Bible stresses that It s basicly all the words of Jesus WITH NO SUPERNATURAL MIRICLES, He took several bibles, just them up with only the parables and other words of Jesus minus anything resembling miricles This is the version of the bible that was given to new members of congress for over 50 years 1904 1957 when they decided to just stop doing it.I ve read mine several times and i think it helps get into th [...]
