Biblical Symbol

have in common.
Biblical Allusion
The crucifixion of Jesus
How is this an Allusion?
Do you know why the crucifixion of Aslan is a biblical allusion? Well, as you read on you will soon find out. The lion, Aslan, the king of Narnia, is depicted as God or Jesus in
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
. It is an allusion because the lion was crucified like Jesus, though they were both loving and thoughtful. Aslan had sacrificed himself, for the sake of Edmund, who is one of the main characters in the book. This is like Jesus who died for living things, so we could be able to go to heaven. Also like Jesus, Aslan rises from the dead. This is why this example is an allusion and has relevance to the Bible.

The Crucifixion of Jesus
The Allusion Excerpt
At that moment they heard from behind them a loud noise—a great cracking, deafening noise as if a giant had broken a giant's plate.... The Stone Table was broken into two pieces by a great crack that ran down it from end to end; and there was no Aslan.
"Who's done it?" cried Susan. "What does it mean? Is it more magic?"
"Yes!" said a great voice from behind their backs. "It is more magic." They looked round. There, shining in the sunrise, larger than they had seen him before, shaking his mane (for it had apparently grown again) stood Aslan himself.
"Oh, Aslan!" cried both the children, staring up at him, almost as much frightened as they were glad....
"But what does it all mean?" asked Susan when they were somewhat calmer.
"It means," said Aslan, "that though the Witch knew the Deep Magic, there is a magic deeper still which she did not know. Her knowledge goes back only to the dawn of time. But if she could have looked a little further back, into the stillness and the darkness before Time dawned, she would have read there a different incantation. She would have known that when a willing victim who had committed no treachery was killed in a traitor's stead, the Table would crack and Death itself would start working backward."
