America's third president regarded Jesus as a moral guide rather than a divinity, and in The Jefferson Bible, he highlights Christ's ethical teachings from the Gospels. Discarding the scriptures' supernatural elements and dogma, this volume reflects the deist view of religion, focusing on Jesus' message of absolute love and service. Jefferson undertook his self-appointed task in 1794, consulting not only the King James Bible but also Greek, French, and Latin versions.

Thomas Jefferson completed this book in around 1820, when he was 77 years ol. Thomas Jefferson regarded Jesus as a moral guide rather than a divinity, and in "The Jefferson Bible, "he highlights Christ's ethical teachings from the Gospels.

This was done by carefully cutting out and pasting together chosen verses from the four main gospels into what was, in its final version, an 82-page book.

The ex-president bent over the book, using a razor and scissors to carefully cut out small squares of text. Soon, the book’s words would live in their own book, hand bound in red leather and ready to be read in private moments of contemplation.

American legend THOMAS JEFFERSON (1743-1826)-author, statesman, and third president of the United States-was a deist, a believer in, at best, a watchmaker god, one who did not take a personal interest in the goings-on of humanity. Jefferson, who had no desire to preach, refused to let his Bible beyond a circle of close friends, and it remained unpublished until 1895. He authored tracts and books on such diverse subjects as gardening, the life of Jesus, the history of Virginia, and the practices of farming.

But Jefferson found the task simple. The worthy parts of the Bible were easily distinguishable from the worthless- as distinguishable, he later wrote in a letter to John Adams, as diamonds in a dunghill. Using the passages he sliced out of his Bibles, Jefferson created a new book, which he called, The Philosophy of Jesus of Nazareth

In 1816, Thomas Jefferson wrote in a letter to Charles Thompson that he had made "a wee little book . . . which I call the philosophy of Jesus; it is a paradigm of his doctrines, made by cutting the texts out of the book, and arranging them on the pages of a blank book, in a certain order of time or subject. A more beautiful or precious morsel of ethics I have never seen; it is a document in proof that I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus."
