Does Tietjens represent a Christ figure?

There are a few attributes that Christopher has that sometimes make us picture him as a Christ figure. Those attributes are:
1st-it is his name Christopher
2nd-it is his mania for self-sacrifice
3rd-it is his duality of mind and body
4th-it is his refusal to accept Groby
5th-it is his mental anguish (he is deserted by his Father)
6th-it is the calumnies and slanders that press upon him like a crown of thorns
7th-it is the burden of guilt he bears like a cross
All of these attributes are very close to the Bible and to the Christ.
