“And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But may we hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this most venerated reformer of human errors.” —Thomas Jefferson, Letter to John Adams, April 11, 1823

Who was the Jesus that Jefferson found? He was not the familiar figure of the New Testament. In Jefferson's Bible, there is no account of the beginning and the end of the Gospel story. There is no story of the annunciation, the virgin birth or the appearance of the angels to the shepherds. The resurrection is not even mentioned.

If either One of them are really a Christian, then I don't want to be one, thank you very much...but, NO!

"Read the Bible as you would Livy or Tacitus. For example, in the book of Joshua we are told the sun stood still for several hours. Were we to read that fact in Livy or Tacitus we should class it with their showers of blood, speaking of their statues, beasts, etc. But it is said that the writer of that book was inspired. Examine, therefore, candidly, what evidence there is of his having been inspired. The pretension is entitled to your inquiry, because millions believe it. On the other hand, you are astronomer enough to know how contrary it is to the law of nature" (Works, Vol. ii., p. 217).

In this same letter, he thus refers to Jesus Christ:

"Keep in your eye the opposite pretensions: First, of those who say he was begotten by God, born of a virgin, suspended and reversed the laws of Nature at will, and ascended bodily into heaven; and second, of those who say he was a man of illegitimate birth, of a benevolent heart, enthusiastic mind, who set out without pretensions to divinity, ended in believing them, and was punished capitally for sedition by being gibbeted, according to the Roman law, which punished the first commission of that offence by whipping, and the second by exile or death in furea."

It has been years since I read this quote from Jefferson OA, and I had forgotten how clearly he made his feelings known. A stark statement indeed.

If Jefferson were running for office today on the Democratic ticket, the GOP would attack these writings savagely and claim them to be proof of his Godlessness.

That was the very reason that I posted it. An exacto knife??? But, it didn't kill any of them and a gun would have...you have to consider that, also.

I don't want to be a bible thumper here...No, I lied!:-) I must agree with portions of your earlier post relating to the errant beliefs of Jefferson. While many consider him a consummate Statesman, philosopher and political visionary, myself included, he was NOT a christian in any real sense I have been able to understand. I might add..scholars studying Jefferson more extensively than I, don't appear to rest in declarative conclusion!

However, the iconic New Testament canons Jefferson ignored were sorely indicted by the Old Testiment itself! The Old Testiment accounts for the town Jesus was born and the fact that he would be "pierced for our transgressions",(before crucifixion had been invented by the Babylonians, much less the Romans), and much, much more. In fact, Pslam 22, written approximately 1120 years before Christ was born is an express account of the crucifiction chronology and more.

As you brought forward, Jefferson was in struggle and may not have reconciled his misunderstandings. I prefer to believe he may have..I'd love to meet him someday!

I noticed that this joke was created by the one creative conservative in America...and latched on to and repeated ad nauseum by the millions of conservatives who lack any semblance of creativity or humor across the country. Just witnessing the collective conservative mind "in action" is an exercise in classic comedy.
