Biblical Connections in Narnia

Narnia Final Reflection

Harper Davis 

  • Aslan on the stone table 

When Aslan was slain, Lucy and Susan thought that he was really dead, but when the sisters were crying and acting sad over Aslan’s death, he appeared and said, ”If the Witch knew the true meaning of sacrifice, she might have interpreted the deep magic differently. That when a willing victim who has committed no treachery, is killed in a traitor’s stead, the stone table will crack, and even death itself would turn backwards.” The allegorical meaning of Aslan’s death was showing that Jesus and Him dying was not permanent.

  • Aslan being resurrected 

Sin will always be fooled, and come out non-victorious. Mary Magdalene thought Jesus was dead, but He came to her and said that He was not dead, He had risen, and that sin had no toll on Him. This also happened with Lucy and Susan when Aslan came to the stone table and how he said in the quote above, that the witch has no control on Aslan, for she didn’t read the dark magic. 

  • Aslan creating Narnia 

Aslan creating Narnia is obviously one of the biggest biblical connections in the movie/books. We have been saying that Aslan is the Creator of Narnia, and when he was singing and walking around creating, he was singing. I made a parallel with this and God giving us a breath of life to create man, woman, beast and nature. 

I relate to Lucy, because I love to adventure and be with those I love, but I also relate to Edmund because he is tempted by everything the white witch gives him, like how the devil tempts me with glory and power.
