Seymour Christ

Someone in class (Nick, was it you?) mentioned the idea of Seymour Glass as a Christ figure and something about the references to marks on the hands and feet make me think this true. However, my mind also harkens to the Matron of Honor's (Edie's) circlet of forget-me-nots(crown of thorns) or the "suffering" of the characters trapped inside the hot car in "Raise High..." is there something Christlike in all of Salinger's characters or am I just feeling particularly hopeful today?
