Abstract

Psychological studies of Jesus have been neglected, but they may, in fact, make a contribution to historical Jesus studies. Jay Haley's 1969 essay, ‘The Power Tactics of Jesus Christ’, is suggestive in this regard. Haley emphasizes Jesus’ appeal to the poor through healings, his rhetorical skills against the establishment, and his creation of an organization of dedicated men. His views that Jesus’ organization was hierarchically ordered and that Jesus made a fateful miscalculation leading to his execution are evaluated and reinterpreted in light of more recent scholarship.
