The Christ Scandal and Christ On Trial

The Jesuit Pope and the secret of Jefferson’s Bible

Pope Francis, formerly Cardinal Bergoglio, brings a welcome change of style to the Vatican, and Catholics the world over are eagerly waiting to see if he introduces the much-needed reforms to the scandal-ridden Church of Rome. He is a member of the Society of Jesus, the official name of the Jesuits, one of the largest and most influential orders of the Catholic Church. The Jesuits have a centuries-old record of tangling with the Vatican on various issues, to the point that the order was sometimes called ‘the Vatican’s shock troops’ or ‘God’s Marines’. In this regard, it is little-known that Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), the third President of the United States (1801-1809), was also a Jesuit, and he took the unprecedented step of reforming the Christian Gospels by creating his own version from information preserved in a secret 15th Century document that was held in the very archives of the Jesuits! That work today is popularly called the Jefferson Bible, an 84-page assemblage of edited passages from the Gospels of the New Testament, and one has to wonder whether the new Pope Francis in the Vatican knows what motivated Jefferson to create his version of the Gospels. In a letter to Joseph Priestly in 1803, Jefferson stated that he conceived the idea of restructuring the story of Jesus Christ after a conversation with Dr. Benjamin Rush (1746-1813) who handed him the confidential old Jesuit document that provided the essence of Jefferson’s undertaking.

Cutting up the Bible

From the information contained within it, Jefferson purchased two identical Bibles and opened them to the first four books of the New Testament. He then took a knife or a razor blade, and drawing upon the old Jesuit document, proceeded to cut out specifically selected Gospel narratives that the Church itself confesses are ‘not regarded as genuine’¹. He deleted what he called the ‘worthless’ sections of the story of Christ which included the miracles, such as ‘walking on water’ and ‘multiplying the loaves and fishes’. He dispensed with the virgin birth and any passages that suggested Christ was divine. He removed narratives that he called ‘absurd’, saying in a letter to John Adams that those passages were ‘as distinguishable as diamonds in a dunghill’. Some of them were the fable of raising Lazarus from the dead, the ‘resurrection’ of Christ, and other forgeries, such as the ‘messianic prophecies’ and the concept of ‘trinity’. In other words, Jefferson removed all fictions from the Gospels, and that left him with a condensed version of the very essence of the Gospels, that being the carry-over of earlier beliefs and sayings of Krishna, Buddha, Confucius, the principles of Mithra (the Myths-of-Ra), the floating rules and moral apothegms of ancient times, along with the basic substance of Essene philosophy and ideology, all of which were subsequently attached to a non-historic Gospel personage called Jesus Christ who became the spokesman for the earlier thoughts.

Charlatanism in the Gospels

When Jefferson finished his Bible, he wrote to his friend William Short, saying that he had edited the Gospels in order to separate the ‘inspiring from the ludicrous’;

‘I find many passages of fine imagination, correct morality, and of the nice munificence; and others again of so much ignorance, so much absurdity, so much untruth, charlatanism, and imposture, as to pronounce it impossible that such contradictions should have proceeded from the same origin’.

He called the Gospel writers, ‘ignorant, unlettered men’ who produced ‘superstitions, fanaticisms, and fabrications’, and added that he was of the opinion that the Christian priesthood used religion as a ‘mere contrivance to filch wealth and power to themselves’ and that ‘in every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty’.

Revealing that Christianity is a universal forgery

The Jesuit secret about the true nature of the earliest Gospels allowed Jefferson to show in his Bible how, from beginning to end, the story of Jesus Christ is a work of imaginative fiction that possesses no factual merit, and is used by Vatican hierarchs as the very essence of their projections. By removing the fake supernatural elements from the Gospels, Jefferson’s Bible in effect took away the blood and substance of the Christian religion and revealed that Christianity subsists on fictitious narratives sustained today by false claims and a deceptive presentation of the facts.

If Pope Francis is serious about reform in the Church of Rome, he could make a dramatic showing by immediately endorsing Thomas Jefferson’s Bible as the new and official Bible for the entire Christian religion, and thus set the Catholic Church in a new and honest direction.
