Some, including myself, have theorized that Harry actually does play
the role of Christ and the series is just an allegory. An example in
Book 7 is when he willingly walks up to Voldemort and is willingly
killed and then rises from the dead.
Also note the similarity between Peter and Ron: Both claim that they
will never leave Jesus/Harry's side, and do when the going gets tough,
but then both return as heroes.
