Would it be possible to imagine Jesus Christ leading the Crusades, or calling forth a Crusdade on his behalf?

“.....calling forth a Crusdade on his behalf?”

That will be at his second coming.

It had little to do with religion and more to do with taming the Arab/Persian threat to Europe.

"Would it possible to imagine Jesus Christ leading the Crusades"

The Jeaus bloodline or Davidic bloodline. All the Royal Houses of Europe are of the bloodline.

Back then Primo Genitur had created a large number of Royals who had titles but were landless.They thought that because of their bloodlines they had claims to these lands thru-out the Levant.

Commoners participated because the Pope promised them entry into heaven.

Even today most people consider Steve Runciman's 3volume history of the Crusades to be the authority on the Crusades. The first volume covers the first Crusade and ends with Templers being pushed into the sea.
