The words and ideas of Jesus of Nazareth have had a major influence on the thinking of Western civilization for almost two thousand years now. "Christianity" of some form is the primary religion of almost every Western nation. The story of the life and deeds of Jesus of Nazareth has been translated into every major language and has been spread around the world by the various missionaries and churches that were spawned by his teachings. For centuries he has been hailed as the ultimate role model for Western Man. Millions of words have been written about his actions, sayings and ideology (and it is estimated that more has been written about Jesus in the last twenty years than the previous two thousand years).

Through the years Jesus has been viewed as many different things by many different people a teacher, a miracle worker, a charismatic healer, a magician, a charlatan, a political and religious leader, a blasphemer, a paranoid schizophrenic, the son of God, a myth. Whatever one's opinion, however, there certainly seems to be much that can be learned from the remarkable accounts of the life, words and actions of Jesus of Nazareth. The purpose of this monograph is to take yet another look at the reported deeds and teachings of Jesus. Using the modern psychological modeling tools of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) this monograph examines the structure behind the extraordinary deeds and capabilities reported in the accounts of his life.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a psychological model which, among other things, provides a set of tools that allow us to map out the cognitive processes underlying the works of creative and exceptional people. Rather than concern itself with the content of the work of the particular individual to be modeled, NLP looks for the deeper structures that produced those results. In particular, NLP searches for the way in which someone uses such basic neurological processes as the senses (i.e., seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling and tasting), how these processes are shaped and reflected by language, and how the two combine to produce a particular program or strategy. According to the NLP model it is the way in which we organize our sensory and linguistic functions into a programmed sequence of mental activity that determines to a large degree how we will perceive and respond to the world around us.

This monograph explores the structure of the cognitive strategies employed by Jesus in his various works and teachings and how we might apply Jesus' strategic thinking abilities to our own lives.
