You do know that Jesus was just a man.

Jesus Christ was a human who became the central figure of Christianity.

Jesus Christ's iconic crucifix has been featured many times through rosaries and churches often with an image of him nailed on it.

Dean Winchester: Christmas is Jesus's birthday.
Sam Winchester: No; Jesus's birthday was probably in the fall. It was actually the winter solstice festival that was co-opted by the church and renamed Christmas. But I mean the yule log, the tree, even Santa's red suit is all remnants of Pagan worship.

George: Abomination?! Try "Miracle Worker"!
Homeless Woman: Try "Messiah."

Sam Winchester (about the homeless encampment where Metatron is currently located sees him as a new Jesus): There's a homeless encampment. The way the folks talking he's got them convinced he's some kind of new Jesus or something.

Dean: You can save the humble-pie Jesus routine for somebody who gives a damn.

Sam: We have to find it anyways.
Dean: Yeah, and give it to Greenstreet and then get our fill up on Jesus juice.
Season 13, A Most Holy Man



  • The angel Joshua seems to have borrowed some of Jesus' traits along with the name. Firstly, of Jesus it is said that he is the only one who has seen the face of God the Father (John 1:18, 6:46), and the show's angel Joshua was the only one who spoke with God (albeit not face to face). Secondly, after Jesus rose from the dead, one of his female disciples did not immediately recognize him and mistook him for a gardener (John 20:15), and in the show, the angel Joshua is called a "gardener".[1] Additionally the name Joshua is reminiscent of Jeshua, the Aramaic name of Jesus.
  • In Christian Theology, including all Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant thought, God and Jesus are one and the same, as part of the "Holy Trinity".
  • Some believe that the Archangel Michael and Jesus are one and the same.


  • Though Jesus has never been depicted in the series, the rise of the religion he founded has provided context to some storylines. With the coming of Jesus on Earth, the pagan deities Madge and Edward Carrigan and Vesta lost almost all of their followers, and without sacrifices they were weakened.[2]
  • In the novel Supernatural: Unholy Cause, Judas says that Jesus was no God, while Castiel disagrees.
  • In O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Amara is searching for God in a church. After killing the people in there, she looks to a stained glass with an image of Jesus on it. Then she talks to the image, waiting for an answer from God.
  • In a special webisode of Ghostfacers, Harry Spangler mistook Castiel for Jesus.
  • In Swan Song, Chuck answering the phone hoping it was "Mistress Magda" might be a reference to Mary Magdalene, a Disciple of Jesus Christ in the New Testament that some believe to be a prostitute or even the wife of Jesus (a theory made famous by the book the Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown).
  • In Meet the New Boss, Castiel looks at the mosaic window to see the image of Jesus. He rights himself, scorching the pew in the process and as he walks out, the image of Jesus has been replaced by that of him.
  • In Breakdown there was a van that said Jesus lives.
  • Dean once referred to holy oil as "Jesus juice".
  • In American Nightmare, Olivia Sanchez and Ricky Copeland are killed by stigmata. Stigmata is the body marks, sores, or sensations of pain in locations corresponding to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus Christ, such as the hands, wrists, and feet. An individual bearing the wounds of stigmata is referred to as a Stigmatist or a Stigmatic.
  • According to Sam in  Phantom TravelerGod's name in Latin. Speaking it to a possessed person make her flinch. In truth, God in Latin is not "Christo," but "Deus." "Christos" would be "Christ" in first century Greek, translated from the Hebrew "Moshiach" (English: Messiah) both meaning the "Anointed One." It was modified and changed by the Romans into the Latin "Christus" meaning Christ, or sometimes mistakenly "Chrestus," the "Marked Man."Christo" could arguably work to the same effect as was depicted, literally Latin meaning "by/in Christ.
  • In A Most Holy Man When Sam is looking online for the blood of a most holy man he looks at some religious relics and he mentions nails from the True Cross which would be referencing the nails that Jesus was nailed on when he was on the cross.
  • In Faith There is a sign that says Jesus Christ maketh thee whole... Acts 9:34.
  • In Goodbye Stranger The Spear of Destiny is seen in the headquarters of the Men of Letters. Which in Biblical lore is the Spear that pierced the side of Jesus as he hung on the cross.
