JEFFERSON BIBLE

Thomas Jefferson (1743- 1826) was the third president of the United Sates of America. Thomas Jefferson was a rich, educated American politician. He penned the Declaration of Independence and is widely considered one of the most influential Founding Fathers of the United States of America.

Some modern scholarship has been critical of Jefferson’s private life, finding a contradiction between his ownership of the large numbers of slaves that worked his plantations and his famous declaration that “all men are created equal”. Although the matter remains a subject of debate, most historians believe that Jefferson had a sexual relationship with his slave Sally Hemings, a mixed-race woman who was a half-sister to his late wife, and that he fathered at least one of her children. Presidential scholars and historians generally praise Jefferson’s public achievements, including his advocacy of religious freedom and tolerance in Virginia. Jefferson continues to rank highly among U.S. presidents.

What many do not know is that he wrote his own Bible. Jefferson viewed Jesus as strictly human. He said that he is a Christian but he did not believe in miracles or in the supernatural. He said that Jesus Christ was a true teacher from God but not the Son of God. Jefferson viewed Jesus as a great moral teacher but believed that His claims to deity and the stories of His miracles were later agenda-driven additions by Jesus’ followers. He cut off from the Bible any passage about the miracles of Christ, His resurrection, His prophecies or passages about angels. He published the Bible without all these words. His original copy can be seen at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC (see below). Historically, Thomas Jefferson was a great man. But according the original Bible, he is a fool! “The fool says in his heart, “There is no God” (Ps 14:1)… How sad…

What is the truth? The Truth is that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the second Person of the Trinity! Jehovah in the Old Testament is Jesus Christ in the New Testament! Listen to Peter!  “Jesus asked Peter: “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”… “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven” (Mt 16:13-17)

Jefferson died deeply in debt, unable to pass on his estate freely to his heirs. He gave instructions in his will for disposal of his assets, including the freeing of his female slave Sally Hemings’s children. But his estate, possessions, and slaves were sold at public auctions. How sad…
