The Jefferson Bible by Thomas Jefferson (1743 - 1826).


This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-jefferson-bible-the-life-and-morals-of-jesus-of-nazareth-by-thomas-jefferson/


This is an abandoned solo, lovingly brought back from the brink as a group project!

The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth, commonly referred to as the Jefferson Bible, was a book constructed by Thomas Jefferson in the later years of his life by cutting and pasting with a razor and glue numerous sections from the New Testament as extractions of the doctrine of Jesus. Jefferson's condensed composition is especially notable for its exclusion of all miracles by Jesus and most mentions of the supernatural, including sections of the four gospels that contain the Resurrection and most other miracles, and passages that portray Jesus as divine. (Summary adapted fromWikipedia)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uc1.32106000183712;view=1up;seq=7
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  • DURING recording:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
    START of recording (Intro)
    • "Chapter [number] of The Jefferson Bible. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "The Jefferson Bible, by Thomas Jefferson. [Chapter]"

    END of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

    Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  • AFTER recording
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    128 kbps MP3
    jeffersonbible_#_jefferson_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. jeffersonbible_1_jefferson_128kb.mp3)

    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!
    No tags required for this project.

    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

OK, we are open for business! This is a solo project that the soloist is not able to finish. He has requested that I open it up as a group project to get it into the catalog. I am hoping this will be a quick project, especially since there are only 4 sections left. I think we could get this done! :D

I'm assuming I should read each chapter number as I get to a new chapter... but what about the verses? Should I acknowledge them (seems clunky), or just read each chapter as though it were any other book? Sorry if this is something basic that I should know... but I just want to be sure.

Please ask as many questions that you need to ask! It is the only way to make sure you are doing things the way they need to be done. Yes, read the chapter numbers, but not the verse numbers. You are right, it would be a little strange if you read the verse numbers. Thank you for asking!
