    • Mythological
      Entered into through a wardrobe
      Inhabited by dwarfs, giants, and cintaurs
      Good vs. Evil
      Aslan represents good
      The White Witch represents evil
      In an eternal winter due to the White Witches curse on Narnia like Satan’s hold on our world
      Narnia
    • The Children
      Lucy
      A believer
      The one who discovered Narnia
      Represents “child-like faith”
      Susan
      The Queen of Narnia
      Represents Mary of the Bible
      Peter
      A strong leader
      Becomes the King of Narnia
      Represents the Apostle Peter
      Edmund
      Betrays the others
      Represents all Mankind
    • A lion who brings warmth with him
      Represents Jesus Christ
      The creator of Narnia
      Sacrifices himself to save everyone else, just as Jesus did
      States that he is even on the other side of the wardrobe, just known by a different name
      Aslan
    • Aslan
      His name means Lion in Turkish.He is a lion but is sometimes referred to as a lamb.
      In the story as it draws closer to Aslan'sreturn to Narnia, ice begins to thaw and spring begins because the witch's power is weakening, this might suggest that as Christ comes there is a deminishingof the strength of evil and an increasing intensity of Christ’s Spirit, presence and power.
    • Queen Jadis
      The White Witch
      Rules Narnia with evil for 100 years
      Represents Satan
      Beautiful but Evil
      Curses Narnia with ice for all of her rule
    • Lucy’s Healing Potion = Christ’s Blood
      Aslan’s Breath = The Resurrection Power of the Holy Spirit
      The Stone Table = The cross
      Susan’s Horn = Prayer
      Helmet = Salvation
      Shield = Faith
      Other Significant Symbols
    • 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 .
      The Final Battle and Judgement Day
