Pictures of the Greater Story Inside the Lesser Story

I just finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows. I know, I know. I am WAY behind in this area, considering the final book was written in 2007, and the movie was filmed in 2010 (part 1) and 2011 (part 2). However, I recently realized something- Jesus is present in Harry Potter and the …

Death by Rock
