Harry Potter and The New Testament are very similar. In both, we follow the growth of a young man who does things that we wouldn't be able to believe unless we saw them and who ends up dying before coming back to life, all the while having his trusted followers with him through thick and thin, amirite?

except that we don't see jesus grow up. He's born, then he hangs out with some temple elders, then suddenly he's 30.

I also noticed parallels between Voldemort and Hitler.

@Andromeda I also noticed parallels between Voldemort and Hitler.

Me too. The more I think about it the more alike they are! I wonder if that was intentional.

I hope people who didn't know he dies and comes back to life read this. P:

"And while I'm on the subject, let me say something about Harry Potter. Warlocks are the enemies of God! And I don't care what kind of hero they are, they're an enemy of God and had it been in the Old Testament, Harry Potter would have been put to death! You don't make heroes out of warlocks!"

The last book(all of them really) is a huge biblical allusion. It's deliberate.

J.K. Rowling's works are inspired by the stories from the New Testament.

No, they are not. Just because a comparison can be made between Jesus and Harry Potter doesn't mean she got her inspiration from the Bible.

It is something I read in an article about her. So go argue with the person who wrote that article.

Fawkes the phoenix was definitely a symbol for Jesus.

@wobbuffet Fawkes the phoenix was definitely a symbol for Jesus.

He was a symbol for Harry, too, in a way. Harry "rose from the ashes".

Witchcraft, to some extent, exists.

My mom would kill me for this, but what if Jesus was a wizard?
