The whole Narnian story is about Christ.   … The whole series works out like this.
The Magician’s Nephew
tells the Creation and how evil entered Narnia.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the Crucifixion and Resurrection.
Prince Caspian, restoration of the true religion after corruption.
The Horse and His Boy, the calling and conversion of a heathen.
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the spiritual life (especially in Reepicheep).

Prologue

He is the High King above all kings, the King of kings and Lord of lords.

He is the son of the Great Emperor beyond the sea, beyond the world. He spoke and sang before the creation of the world and brought the world into being.

He commands legions of creatures and people in many worlds.  Some creatures loyal to him may seem strange to us, and many of them fly.  They worship him and serve him wholeheartedly.

His word is always true.  You can depend on him totally. He never lies.

He appears unexpectedly and makes things right.  He gave his life to conquer evil and ransom the guilty rebel.  He rose again by dawn and appeared first to loving, caring young women.

He has enemies in this world and in other worlds but he defeated them and they are doomed. They tremble at the sound of his name.

All who trust in him are forgiven and set free.  He breathes life into hearts of stone.  His breath gives life.

He reveals himself to all who choose to follow and obey him, and the more they know him the more they love him.  The more you know him the bigger he becomes to you. He loves with unending love.

He chose Peter to lead under his authority and to reign with his royal family.  They failed him at times, as we all do, but he always sets things right when anyone asks for his help, trusts him and follows him.

He has all authority in this world and in other worlds. Multitudes love and serve him now and forever. You can talk to him now and always. 

He is the subject of this book and many other books.  He calls you to respond to him, to believe in him, to love him and to live for him.

He is the Lion of Judah.

Conclusion

Endorsements

* A remarkable work – quite unique
This is a remarkable work and something quite unique that I’ve not come across before (and believe me I’ve seen most ideas). There is a huge appetite for devotional type books and I’m sure that this one will appeal to many people.  Russ Burg (USA)

* Most wonderful devotional from Narnia
One of the most interesting devotionals ever! As a huge fan of all things Narnia, I am so grateful for this deeper aspect of the truths in C.S. Lewis’ stories. Geoff Waugh did a great job in crafting such a book as this. What a wonderful addition to any collection, and an inspiration to know Jesus more deeply.  Belinda S. (Amazon Customer)

* Enhance your wonder and love of Christ
You can read the Narnia tales as just good stories, but CS Lewis wanted people to see more. This book will help you see the many links with Jesus, the Lion of Judah. Use this to enhance your wonder and love of Christ.  
Rev Dr John Olley (Perth, Australia)

* Best companion work I know of
Many people have fallen in love with the timeless classics of the Narnia series. Yet few stop to think how closely the story is a parallel universe to the real world in which we live. If you want a serious and detailed look at how this works in Lewis’s work then I cannot think of any other resource of this calibre. Either for a young person who is interested in exploring more, or as a resource on a pastor’s desk, it is an invaluable companion to the original series.

 

* An unusual and fascinating book
Geoff Waugh explores fascinating layers of meaning in C. S. Lewis’s children’s classic. Aslan, the triumphant lion, is revealed as a reflection of Jesus. The book includes devotional meditations using Bible references.   (Amazon Customer)

* Worth your time – rich teaching
Whether you are familiar with Narnia teachings, or this is new to you, Geoff Waugh faithfully puts together the many layers of meaning in the meanings of the Lion Aslan as portrayed in each of the books of the series. This is a great companion when you read, and is a stand-alone teaching on the depths of teaching that C.S. Lewis weaves into Aslan’s character. Definitely worth your time.   Steve Loopstra (USA)

A 1 TitlesA 7 LionThe following comment about Discovering Aslan is included in

The Lion of Judah (1) The Titles of Jesus
and
The Lion of Judah (7) The Lion of Judah (compiled in one volume)

One of the most popular Lion stories is about Aslan in The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis.

The stories of Aslan illustrate in fairy tale the greater story of the Lion of the tribe of Judah hidden within the Narnia stories. Replying to a child’s inquiry about the lion’s name, Lewis wrote. “I found the name in the notes to Lane’s Arabian Nights: it is the Turkish for Lion. I pronounce it Ass-lan myself. And of course I meant the Lion of Judah.”[i] The Aslan passages echo and reflect the greatest story of all, the story of the Lion of Judah.

Aslan reminded the children that they would know him truly in their own world when they left Narnia: “But there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little you may know me better there.”[ii]

Lewis encouraged readers to make that discovery. He replied to Hila, an 11 year old girl who wrote a letter asking about Aslan’s other name: “As to Aslan’s other name, well I want you to guess. Has there ever been anyone in this world who (1) Arrived at the same time as Father Christmas. (2) Said he was the son of the Great Emperor. (3) Gave himself up for someone else’s fault to be jeered at and killed by wicked people. (4) Came to life again. (5) Is sometimes spoken of as a Lamb (see the end of the Dawn Treader). Don’t you really know His name in this world.”[iii]

Most children did. Many adults did not.

Nine-year-old Laurence worried that he loved Aslan more than Jesus. So his mother wrote to C. S. Lewis, care of the Publishing Company. She received his answer ten days later. Lewis explained, “Laurence can’t really love Aslan more than Jesus, even if he feels that’s what he is doing. For the things he loves Aslan for doing or saying are simply the things Jesus really did and said. So that when Laurence thinks he is loving Aslan, he is really loving Jesus: and perhaps loving Him more than he ever did before.”[iv]

Lewis, replying to a girl, Ruth, wrote, “If you continue to love Jesus, nothing much can go wrong with you, and I hope you may always do so. I’m thankful that you realized [the] “hidden story” in the Narnian books. It is odd, children nearly always do, grown-ups hardly ever.”[v]

The Chronicles of Narnia can help you know Aslan better in the world of Narnia and to know and love Jesus, the Lion of Judah, better also.

Jesus promised to be with us always. He is with us now, caring for us and helping us, even though we do not see him yet. One day we will see him and really know how great and good he is. Meanwhile we can talk to him in our mind and heart anytime and get to know him better from the Bible, especially through the Gospels. Why not talk to him right now?

One of his last promises is ‘Remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age’ (Matthew 28:20).

The Emblem of Jerusalem: The Lion of Judah

The Hebrew word is Jerusalem

Selections from the Book

The Lion of Judah in Scripture

The Lion of Judah, a title adapted from Revelation 5:5, is one of the titles for Jesus. The verses in this book cover his many titles. The name Jesus is from the Greek translation of the Hebrew name Joshua (Yeshua). See www.biblegateway.com for more references using these titles.

Lion of Judah

Judah’s father Jacob called him a young lion and prophesied that ‘the sceptre shall not depart from Judah until Shiloh comes’ (Genesis 49:9-10 NKJV), or ‘until he comes to whom it belongs’ (RSV), or ‘until tribute comes to him’ (NRSV, ESV). Revelation 5:5 declares that the Lion of the tribe of Judah has triumphed, announcing that Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb was also the conquering Lion.

Then one of the elders said to me, ‘Do not weep. See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.’ (Revelation 5:5)

Jesus/Joshua (the Lord saves)

The word Joshua/Jesus means the Lord saves, or the Lord is salvation.  That is why the angel announcing his birth said, ‘… you are to name him Joshua/Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins’ (Matthew 1:21). It is the same name as Moses’ general, Joshua, who led the Israelites into their promised land.

The earliest English translations of the Bible used the name Jesus for Joshua/Jesus of Nazareth, and the name Joshua for others with that same name. It is translated as Joshua in Luke 3:29 (Jose in KJV), Acts 7:45 and Hebrews 4:8.  So in English the name Jesus became unique and sacred for Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God, the Saviour of the world.

Joshua (originally ‘Yehoshua’ in Hebrew) had been shortened to Yeshua in Jesus’ time, so Jesus was known as Yeshua/Joshua. That name became Iesous in Greek, Yesu in Africa and Asia, Isa in Arabic, and both Joshua and Jesus in English. The Hebrew word was translated as Joshua in English and the Greek translation of that name became both Joshua and Jesus in English.

Here are sample passages about Joshua/Jesus of Nazareth. You can respond to him as you read about him. He said, “I am with you always” (Matthew 28:20).

She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21)

I am

Jesus, one with God, uses God’s name given to Moses at the burning bush – ‘I am’ (Exodus 3:14). The verses here expound many facets of who Jesus is in himself.

Jesus said to them, ‘Very truly, I tell you, before Abraham was, I am.’ (John 8:58)

The Bread of life, the living bread
I am the bread of life (John 6:35, 48)
I am the living bread (John 6:51)

The Light of the world
I am the light of the world (John 8:12; 9:5)

The Door/Gate
I am the door/I am the gate (John 10:7, 9; door NKJV; gate NRSV)

The Good Shepherd
I am the good shepherd (John 10:11, 14)
… a ruler who is to shepherd my people Israel (Matthew 2:6; see Ezekiel 34)

The Resurrection, the Life
I am the resurrection and the life (John 11:25)

The way, the truth, the life
I am the way, and the truth, and the life (John 14:6)

The True Vine
I am the true vine (John 15:1)
I am the vine, you are the branches (John 15:5)

The Alpha and the Omega,
The first and the last,
The beginning and the end
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. (Revelation 22:13; see Revelation 1:8, 11; 22:13).

The root and the descendant of David,
The bright morning star
I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star
(Revelation 22:16; see Revelation 5:5; see Numbers 24:17)

I AM  For children & youth – a way to remember these I AM statements

1 – bun:  I am the bread of life

2 – shoe: I am the way, the truth, and the life

3 – tree: I am the good shepherd (in the tree’s shade)

4 – door: I am the door

5 – hive: I am the resurrection and the life (if you sit on it)

6 – sticks: I am the light of the world (sticks on fire for light)

7 – heaven: I am the Alpha and the Omega … beginning and the end

8 – gate: I am the first and the last (going through a gate)

9 – vine: I am the true vine

10 – hen: I am the bright morning star (hen/rooster greets morning)

Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book.  But these are written so that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through believing you may have life in his name.
(John 20:30-31)

Jerusalem Emblem: The Lion of Judah
The Hebrew word is Jerusalem

This book examines how Jesus, the Lion of Judah, fulfilled prophecies about him in the Scriptures.

Jesus Declared that he fulfilled Scripture

But all this has taken place, so that the scriptures of the prophets may be fulfilled. (Matthew 26:56)

Then he took the twelve aside and said to them, ‘See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written about the Son of Man by the prophets will be accomplished. (Luke 18:31)

For I tell you, this scripture must be fulfilled in me, “And he was counted among the lawless”; and indeed what is written about me is being fulfilled.’ (Luke 22:37; see Isaiah 53:12)

Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them the things about himself in all the scriptures. (Luke 24:27)

‘These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you—that everything written about me in the law of Moses, the prophets, and the Psalms must be fulfilled.’ Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures, 46 and he said to them, ‘Thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. (Luke 24:44-47)

You search the scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that testify on my behalf. (John 5:39)
