Castiel, 5.06 I Believe the Children Are Our Future

While Jesus is still (obviously) a key figure in Christianity, Jesus as a character in the mythology is mentioned rarely in Supernatural.

When supernatural beings mention Jesus, he is described as a man and not a deity. He is held responsible for establishing Christianity, a religion that supplanted many earlier religions and deities which draws the ire of many pagan gods.

Dean sometimes refers to holy water as "Jesus Juice."[1][2][3]


3.08 A Very Supernatural Christmas

Madge and Edward Carrigan are pagan gods disguised as a suburban couple. They blame Christianity for their marginalization.

Edward Carrigan: All of a sudden, this Jesus character is the hot new thing in town. All of a sudden, our – our altars are being burned down, and we’re being hunted down like common monsters.

6.16 ...And Then There Were None

Eve, the Mother of all Monsters, tells Rick, a devout truck driver, that Jesus was only a man, and that God has abandoned humanity.

Eve: You do know that Jesus was just a man.

9.08 Rock and a Hard Place

Vesta blames Jesus and Christianity for the diminishing in her prominence.

9.18 Meta Fiction

"Gabriel" makes a reference to Jesus while leaving a message on Dean's cell phone.

Gabriel: Hey what's up shorties? Remember me? The guy who died for your sins? No, not the cat with the beard and the sandals, the hot one.

9.23 Do You Believe in Miracles?

Sam tells Dean that the homeless encampment where Metatron is currently located sees him as a messiah.

Sam: There's a homeless encampment. The way the folks talking he's got them convinced he's some kind of new Jesus or something.

Jesus in Lore

Jesus is held to be a manifestation of God as a human. The religion of Christianity is centered on belief that his death provided atonement for sin. He may have been an actual historical figure, a Jewish teacher and political leader who lived in Palestine. Jesus is held to be a prophet in the Islamic religion and a false Messiah in Judaism, though more modern Jewish scholars have taken to viewing Jesus in a more positive light.
