This and the other religious articles are really unnecessary. Take the fact that it has nothing to do with the Harry Potter universe coupled with the fact that it's only in the movie because it had to (were they going to break the window just so it wouldn't show?) and I think we have an article that's only there just because it adds on to the wiki's page count. Moreso, who the hell would look up "Jesus Christ" on the Harry Potter wiki?

- It is a valid appearance nonetheless and, as such, entitled to an article (also, correct me if I'm wrong, but Godric's Hollow was a set, not an actual village, so the stained glass window was made as it was deliberately). -- 02:40, August 10, 2011 (UTC)
Birth year Edit
The birth year was given as "7-2 BC", but I've read elsewhere that since the Massacre of the Innocents shows that Jesus was born in the reign of Herod the Great, and Herod died in 4 BC (yes, he was a different Herod from the one who condemned the adult Jesus), Jesus cannot therefore have been born any later than this. I've made the change. -- RobertATfm (talk) 14:08, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
The page omitted to say that Jesus is also a prophet of Islam. I've added this.
I think the title of this article is wrong; "Christ" is not a name but a title, meaning "the anointed one". OK, so he's commonly called "Jesus Christ" by Christians, but calling him that is tantamount to saying that you believe him to be the Son of God, which many (probably most) people don't. His actual name is "Jesus of Nazareth", and I think this should be the page title. -- RobertATfm (talk) 14:23, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
- I realize this was just moved, but I have to disagree. This article is not about the man that probably lived around the early years CE and preached the word of Christianity. This article is about the biblical figure who is the central figure of Christianity and Son of God. That is, after all, who is depicted on the stained glass, not the "real" Jesus who may or may not be divine. For that same reason, I think we should remove the character infobox and any references to things like birth or death dates, and merely mention him as a religious figure (the same should be done to articles like God). -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 16:25, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
- Somebody removed the reference to Jesus being a prophet of Islam; having checked the Wikipedia article, I've reverted the edit. I can see why some wouldn't like the idea, but the point of articles such as this is to state what is true, not what people would like to be true. I've seen this reference in multiple sources, so it belongs in the article. -- RobertATfm (talk) 03:46, September 19, 2012 (UTC)
