For Jefferson, Jesus was a normal son of one Josef and Mary and it was so normal that there was no abnormality in it and again Jesus died due to capital punishment and never came back in Life as usually claimed by the Church.
Joseph and Mary go to Bethlehem, Where Jesus is Born.
AND it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
2 (And this taxing ways first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, (because he was of the house and lineage of David,)
5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
THE Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
2 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
3 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
4 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
5 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore and took the body of Jesus.
6 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred-pound weight.
7 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
8 Now in the place where he was crucified, there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein never man yet laid.
9 There laid they Jesus: and rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.
Postscript: People of America accepted Jefferson as their President and never opposed him for writing ‘Jefferson Bible’ and vary much that the core of American understanding of Church as an Institution has nothing to do with its polity and progress. American Dream denied Christian hope – Eminency of the American dream is more verifiable than Christian hope which failed and bound to fail as it has been failed since 2000 years.
