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, 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. 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 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. Lost for decades and rediscovered by chance in the late nineteenth century, 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 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.

"In 1804, toward the end of his first term as president, Thomas Jefferson began working on a book that he knew he could never publish. It was an unconventional edit of the Bible [actually the New Testament gospels], and he called it simply, The Philosophy of Jesus of Nazareth. Jefferson believed that the words of Jesus were "the most benevolent code of morals which has ever been offered to man", and he wanted to study his teachings apart from the other parts of the Gospels. Although [he] abandoned the project for over a decade, he finally returned to it in 1819. [He] eliminated anything that he felt was unsupported by history or science, including the virgin birth, Jesus' miracles and the resurrection. He then rearranged the remaining passages chronologically and in parallel translations in English, French, Greek and Latin, combining parts of all four Gospels into a narrative that begins in Bethlehem with Jesus' birth and ends with his burial. [The book] includes [the] original English text as well as a new introduction that examines Jefferson's life and complicated religious beliefs. ..."--Back cover.
