Text of The New Jefferson Bible

I'm making the text of part one of The New Jefferson Bible available for free. Since the Open English Bible is available under a Creative Commons Zero license, it seems the decent thing to do. The second part of the book, the Marshall Edit, is not included in this file, since that is a unique creation of the Jesus story using Jefferson's intent of removing supernatural elements (though my own definition of supernatural).

Below is the text of part one of The New Jefferson Bible: The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth in Modern English, selected by Thomas Jefferson and compiled by Dan Marshall using the OEB translation. An ebook version is available from the Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Kobo bookstores. You can also order a paperback copy from Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Click here to download the PDF of part one.
