No. Jesus's actions and words are more broadly applicable than Musashi's, but I don't think that Jesus expected others to do the same things he did. His model is incomplete for a regular modern person. Musashi is not close to being an adequate role model for a person in the civilized world, although he does have his good qualities, such as focusing and reducing your projects to small pieces that can be dealt with one after another.
