The Jesus Approach: A 13TH Disciple Perspective

Humanity‘s search for meaning, significance and completion reveals the hidden intentions of the heart. One‘s goal in life can be assumed by observing words and actions, both useful and useless. The purpose of psychotherapy is to change negative thoughts and behaviors, thus relieving symptoms such as depression, anxiety and psychosomatic disorders. Jesus‘ goal is not to relieve symptoms, but in fact, to exacerbate them in order to reveal their cause: the condition of one‘s heart. His holistic approach is profoundly spiritual in nature. It entails the body, soul, and spirit as he heals the whole person indistinguishably. This paper explores the unique likenesses and differences between psychotherapy and spirituality, thus offering an integrated approach to healing and wholeness.
