Parallels between the 2014 sci-fi film "Interstellar" and the gospels

I watched the 2014 science-fiction adventure film,"Interstellar" directed by Christopher Nolan. Starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and Michael Caine, the film features a team of space travelers who travel through a wormhole in search of a new habitable planet. It has plenty of warped science but I suppose that gives the viewer a chance to show off their superior knowledge by criticizing it.
Are there parallels between the plot of, "Interstellar" and the gospels ? Cooper ( played by Matthew McConaughey) is sent on a mission to save the human race. He is sent to prepare a place for the chosen few. He says he will return,within the lifetime of his daughter, to take the chosen ones there. He discovers that the promising new worlds are actually fairly bleak. He fails to return due to being stuck in another dimension after falling into a black hole. By a strange quirk of Hollywood logic this somehow results in him being stuck behind the bookcase in his family home. He shoves books out of the book case to try to catch his daughters attention.
I think Christopher Nolan may have solved the Bible riddle ;-) What actually happened was that the events of the life of Jesus took place on Earth's nearly twin planet in close proximity to Gargantua, a nearby rotating black hole which is in another galaxy. This new planet has water that you can walk on, either due to much stronger gravity or due to having much higher salt content than even the dead sea. ( The film didn't really explain why)
Has Jesus got stuck in a black hole and the Bible stories are about what happened on the planet he found? He shoved the Bible through from the back of someones book case in the second century and people mistook it thinking that the events took place on Earth ?
Professor Brand is like the priests who make up a story about having a complex mathematical formula to save the world but it is all a lie to get people to do what they want.
