The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe 1) What does Narnia represent in the reality? It represents fighting for freedom and what you believe in. 2) What events in the Story can you relate to Christianity? When Susan and Lucy walk with Aslan to a quiet place the night of his execution, depicts the Garden of Gethsemane, and similarly after his resurrection he appears first to them in a glorified body. After his death, when Aslan goes to the witches palace and releases his frozen captives, would represent when in Christ’s death "He descended into Hell and set captives free" (however, the meaning of the actual event in scripture is controversial). In the story as it draws closer to Aslan's return to Narnia, ice begins to thaw and spring begins because the witch's power is weakening, might suggest that as Christ comes there is a diminishing of the strength of evil and an increasing intensity of Christ’s Spirit, (Warmth), presence and power. In the end after the great battle, Aslan's authority, and those worthy, are set in places of authority to judge in his kingdom, which follows that when Christ's kingdom is fully restored that humans are even to judge the world and angels (1Cor. 6) 3) Why is the lamppost used as a border between Narnia and our world? In the book "The Magician's Nephew", two young London children are somehow drawn into a "wood between the worlds," which is a central place from which all other worlds can be accessed. The boy, Digory, disobeys an edict not to ring a bell when he and Polly enter Charn, and by ringing the bell, they awaken the White Witch (Jadis of Charn). When returning to their own world, Jadis follows the children, finding herself in London, where she is a tall and powerful woman. In rage, she breaks off piece of a lamppost and when they return to Narnia she is still holding it in her hand.
