You’ve all heard of or read the the 2nd book in the chronicles of Narnia, The Lion, Whitch, and the wardrobe. Some of you have watched the movie. Either it’s the classic one made from Disney, or the really old version of the book that literally shows that the animals are played by humans, or just the book, everybody has heard of the book. But some people probably don’t know this:
The book is based on a story from the Bible.
And best part, the story is the story of jesus!
It makes since, though. Aslan is Jesus, the stone table resembles the cross, Jadis (the witch) is Satan (in the form of a female), and when Jadis (satan) killed Aslan (Jesus) on the stone table (The cross), it resembled Jesus dying on the cross for our sins, so he could save us.
And when Aslan (Jesus) came back from the dead, it resembled when Jesus resurrected from the dead. And Susan and Emily Pevensie went to see Aslan at the stone table but found the stone table split in two, without Aslan on it, it resembled The women who went to see Jesus in his tomb, but found the boulder covering the entrance to the tomb moved and Jesus’ body nowhere to be seen (Although I’m pretty sure there was more than 2 women that went to see Jesus).
That’s all I can make out of the book, but this probably shows that C. S. Lewis was a Christian, bringing the story of jesus and how he died for our sins into a story of entertainment.
Another story in disguise?
