John Coffey is similar to many different figures. John Coffey worked miracles just like Jesus. John suffered racism like Uncle Tom. John Coffey was a person of total goodness just like Siddhartha. John Coffey was one of God's great gifts you could say.

John had a pure heart and wanted to share his gift of being able to bring people back from the dead and being able to heal them. Siddhartha wanted share his gift and get to know people through his travels.

Even though slavery did not exist any more, there still was racism towards African Americans. Uncle Tom and John are both black men who were working for the good of others. Tom was a slave and so was John but they put that behind them so they could let others know they were worth more then just their labor. These two men lived their lives with the goal of helping others.

These men were two of the best miracle workers and people would remember it for a while.
