The Jefferson Bible - Life And Morals Of Jesus Of Nazareth

Front Cover
Jazzybee Verlag, 1961 - 82 pages

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.
