> the "sayings" of Jesus.
I would then guess that Jefferson did this because he thought little of Jesus' divinity but rather focused on the "man" than the "god" and what the man said.
Based on Jeffersons's action alone; your comment is quite like to saying that because one compiles all the writings of a particular author that that one thinks little of the writings of other authors, or moreso; what their saying or something closely entwined. This does'nt add up. Are you basing your comment on anything substantial? if so could your provide; because the likeliest of reasons to do something like that would simply be to have a reference book containing all the quotes attributed to Jesus.
