"As to Jesus of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire,
I think the system of Morals and his Religion, as he left them to us,
the best the World ever saw or is likely to see; but I apprehend it has
received various corrupting Changes; and I have, with most of the
present Dissenters in England, some doubts as to his divinity."
letter to President of Yale, Ezra Stiles, March 9, 1790, in response to Stiles request for his opinion of Jesus of Nazareth
