Excerpt from The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth: Extracted Textually From the Gospels, Together With a Comparison of His Doctrines With Those of Others

The law of Jesus Christ alone is called gospel, that is to say, good news; because therein the incar nation of the Son of God, the birth of the expected Saviour, the remission of sins, the kingdom of charity, and the enjoyment of things eternal, are declared to us. What better news could we possibly expect? How hard soever some of the truths of the gospel may appear to us, yet that is always good news which it tells us, because it is the way of Christ, and the means of salvation. It is the part of a pious man, at his first entrance on the gospel, to form an act of faith, extending to all the speculative and practical truths contained in it, and to beg of God the grace to read them with the same spirit with which they were written.

Tentang pengarang (2017)

Politician, philosopher, farmer, architect, and author, Jefferson was born to Peter and Jane Randolph Jefferson on April 13, 1743, in Tuckahoe, Virginia. As Jefferson observed in his autobiography, his parents could "trace their pedigree far back in England and Scotland." At the age of 16, Thomas Jefferson entered William and Mary College; at age 24, Jefferson was admitted to the bar; at 25, he was elected to the Virginia Assembly. Renowned for his political contributions to the American colonies, and later, to the embryonic Republic, Jefferson published in 1774 A Summary View of the Rights of British America, celebrating the inalienable natural rights claimed by the colonialists. In 1775 Jefferson was elected to the Continental Congress; in 1776 he joined the five-person committee responsible for drafting the Declaration of Independence---a document that is widely regarded as being largely Jefferson's own work. In 1779 Jefferson was elected governor of the state of Virginia, and in subsequent years he distinguished himself both as a cosmopolitan international politician and as a man committed to the future of Virginia. In 1789 he was appointed U.S. secretary of state, in 1797 he served as vice president under President John Adams, and in 1801 he was elected third president of the United States. Jefferson's literary career was no less stellar than his political accomplishments. He authored tracts and books on such diverse subjects as gardening, the life of Jesus, the history of Virginia, and the practices of farming. The precise descriptions of nature that inform his Notes on the State of Virginia (1787) are frequently credited with foreshadowing the Hudson River school of aesthetics. Thomas Jefferson died on the fourth of July. His grave marker, engraved with words of his own choosing, states, "Here lies Thomas Jefferson, Author of the Declaration of American Independence, of the Statute of Virginia for Religious Freedom and Father of the University of Virginia.
