Jefferson Bible

Thomas Jefferson was not only a great president but also, an outstanding scholar. His interest in philosophy and morals led him to assemble: "The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth Extracted Textually from the Gospels", more commonly known as the Jefferson Bible.

Jefferson's Bible was given to every entering member of Congress for more than half of the 20th century.

So, on the day we observe the birth of Christ:

I hope everyone has had a good Christmas.

  1. Interesting that you mention Jefferson in a Christmas message. He believed that Jesus was a great teacher but not God. Jefferson was a Deist and was not as nearly enthralled with religion as is is commonly thought.
