I've just caught up for the first time in like three years (starting from the beginning again), and... I still think he's Jesus. He was called “Messiah of Monsters” and “accustomed to becoming their saviour”, can heal, multiply food, was a carpenter, didn't do anything worthwhile until he was 30, and has the respective wounds in hands and feet. He also calls guns “overpowered”, which hints to him coming from an age before them. Plus, some of his henchmen are from the 20th Century, so knowledge isn't that surprising.
The Black Lord is either the fattest Red Herring ever or, well, just what he seems to be
