Yep. It's supposed to be about the "good news".- He cuts out SO MUCH bullshit. To put it into context, the Jefferson Bible (AKA "The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth") is ~31,000 words while the King James Version is ~783,000 words.
Jefferson and Adams both were not fans of all the mumbo jumbo and hype men in the bible and just looking for what the fuck Jesus said. Trimmed a lot of fat off that hog.
Edit: Just checked my copy. You get to the Sermon on the Mount in 6 pages.
