One magician, however, stands out. To most he is not considered a magician at all but a prophet of God, the messiah himself…Jesus. No matter how one views Jesus, there is no doubt it that his “miracles” as people like to call them, were in fact, acts of magick. In this book we will be discussing Jesus magick and how we can tap into his power. Whether you believe Jesus truly existed as a flesh and blood human being or as simply an archetype representing an idea, there is no doubt that Jesus changed the world with his teachings or the teachings ascribed to him.
In saying that, I would like to point out that this book will not argue for or against the historicity of Jesus; that is for you, the reader to decide. My goal here is to provide a way to use some of the symbology of Jesus to perform magick. It may not be the same exact magick he himself performed.
As you may know from my other books, I like to give some background before I go into the rituals themselves. This book will follow the same pattern. In fact, this book will be quite heavy on history so if you want to skip right to the rituals you may if the history is not something that interests you. I for one think every occultist and magician should also be an historian. It helps put everything in context. History of humanity is in many ways the history of magick, it is very much worth learning.
With that in mind, we will be discussing Jesus and his magick in context of the New Testament, with some smattering of extra canonical gospels thrown in for good measure. Before we do that, we will discuss the time in which Jesus existed and the general ideas of magick preceding and during Jesus time.
