This cannot be in the life of one whose doctrine rules his disposition and not the "actual" life of Christ because of religious agenda getting in the way, especially with regards to salvation, that the life of Christ might be released unto Liberty and Freedom in Him and which always points up a healthy holy fear for the sake of sustaining one's allegiance.
Obedience from love is what allegiance is all about. Jesus personally demonstrated this in His wilderness 'testings'. His only doctrine was the "actual" Life of the "Word" of God "Life" indwelling Him__that in the end the "Glory" God gave Him, He now gives to His disciples__and for the same reason.
To your question, -- NO!! – Jesus has no personal history for you to be a part of!! – Show us all, Jesus’ (( History )), not His Truth, but His History!!!
