I am guessing you mean Jesus in the Bible. The most important comparison is that he seems innocent of the crime he is killed for. However, it is also clear that unlike Jesus in the Bible, he has no idea why he is being killed. Maybe you could make the case that he was a child from a marriage of convenience; in one sense, when Joseph married Mary, Joseph was providing Mary a husband so that her child would not have a bad name, thus a marriage of convenience. Also, he dies unmarried as did Jesus.
