* John Coffey doesn't just parallel Jesus Christ-- he ''is'' the second coming of Christ. StephenKing said there was a ''reason'' he named the character John Coffey, after all. (Hint: look at his initials.)

I know it's eye-rollingly obvious, but hear me out. You have someone who's part of a persecuted minority (Jesus was a Jew in a Roman-occupied part of the middle East, Coffey was a black man in 1930s America) and has extraordinary powers. While there are people aware of these powers, they still can't persuade the powers that be to spare him, and [[spoiler: he is eventually executed]], partly due to systematic persecution of his group. On top of ''that'', the man who [[spoiler:executes him]] is cursed to remain on Earth for the foreseeable future as punishment for killing a divine being.

Think about it: Percy sheds a SingleTear, immediately empties his gun into Wild Bill, and goes catatonic. He is a petty, cruel, cowardly man who considers himself a badass. When he is shown true evil, he can't handle it. He automatically follows a visceral instinct to punish Bill, then his brain checks out.

Delacroix tries to avoid prison time by coming up with a new alias for himself: Quincy Thorpe, and getting a job with the historical society, however, someone within the society eventually finds out about his true identity and past, and has him turned in. Afterwards, the mouse, for some reason, decides he doesn't want to work in Ernie and Lars's string cheese factory, and finds its way to the prisoner, where Del adopts him and names him Mr. Jingles.
