Throughout the novel One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey, tragedy and sacrifice go hand in hand. This is specifically seen in the character of Randall Patrick McMurphy, the tragically flawed patient.

Although the competition of power between him and Nurse Ratched made things hard for McMurphy to stay stable.
Finny, a Christ Figure present in the novel A Separate Peace, breaks his leg and eventually perishes due to the witless actions of his covetous friend. However, Finny orchestrates a clandestine carnival, which includes alcohol that is representative of the wine Christ shared with his followers, at his boarding school before he passes away. This celebration involves a number of Finny’s companions, which could be likened to his disciples.

In spite of the fact that McMurphy’s doctrine is not exactly the same principals as Christs, some of the messages portrayed are similar as he acts as a guardian/saviour for the patients.

He selected twelve disciples to spread the news of the Lord and sent them to purify malicious spirits. McMurphy likewise does the same by teaching the arts of their manhood to his own disciples. Though Christ and McMurphy have a difficult time convincing everybody, other’s doubts lead to their downfalls.
