Narnians swear by ‘the Lion’s mane,’ similarly, Christians swear by Jesus Christ. Aslan is always present when desperation arises; like Jesus Christ, he is there for those who need him Through his teachings, Jesus Christ has offered guidance, or a path to follow. Similarly, Aslan offers guidance to those who accept it throughout the seven books of The chronicles of Narnia. In Prince Caspian, Aslan turns a well of water into a well of red-wine; this illustrates Jesus Christ’s miracle at the last dinner when he turned water to wine and bread to fish. Aslan always has followers who believe in him and trust him. This symbolises Jesus Christ’s followers; more particularly his disciples. Both Aslan and Jesus Christ consider themselves as equal to others of their world. However, Aslan created Narnia, while Christ was not even present at the creation of this world.
