Jefferson’s Bible

A close-up of page fifty-six of The Jefferson Bible shows a passage from the New Testament, Mark 11:27, that Thomas Jefferson pasted to the margin. Jefferson created his own version of the Bible by selecting certain passages from the Gospels. He titled the work The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth, but it is commonly referred to as The Jefferson Bible.
