Abstract

The instrument of Jesus’ spirituality was not the miracles, exorcisms and healings he performed (which were a part of his unique role as Israel’s Messiah) but rather the routine practices of faith (“disciplines”) that permeated his daily life and gave rise to his “growth” (Luke 2:40,52; Heb 5:8) in the Spirit. This article examines the disciplines Jesus practiced and seeks to determine whether they fostered the power of the Spirit in his everyday, human existence.
