The Jefferson Bible
The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth
By Thomas Jefferson
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.

EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK

JOKE OF THE WEEK
In the past, the World Famous Chef Ronaldo taught us all how to make Holy Water. Given that it is Easter, I thought it might be helpful to bring this back.
I did some fact checking and found this to be true. I fact check everything on this blog. As for the things I really like but can’t find any factual support, I normally add, “If this isn’t true, it should be.” That phrase wasn’t necessary this time.
