The Thomas Jefferson Bible Christmas Story
What Thomas Jefferson REALLY Believed About Christmas!
The True Christmas Story from the THE JEFFERSON BIBLE
Compiled by Thomas Jefferson
1.Now it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be enrolled.
2 (And this enrollment was the first which was made when Quirinius, was governor of Syria.)
3 And all went to be enrolled, 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 enrolled with Mary his betrothed, being then 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.
8 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS.
9 And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.
10 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
11.And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem, unto the feast according to the custom.
12 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and his parents knew not of it.
13 But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances.
14 And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.
15 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both hearing them, and asking them questions.
16 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
17 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
18 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them.
19 And Jesus increased is wisdom & stature and favor with God and man.
