  1. After Susan and Lucy removed the muzzle from Aslan, how were the ropes removed?
  2. What loud noise did Susan and Lucy hear as they were watching the sunrise?
  3. To their surprise, what had happened to Aslan? 
  4. Aslan explained to Susan and Lucy that the Witch only knew that a willing victim could be killed instead of a traitor. What the Witch did not know was “…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…”
    What does “who had committed no treachery” mean?

Do you know anyone who has lived a perfect life and NEVER done anything wrong?

Deeper Truth

As a willing victim who had committed no treachery, Aslan died in Edmund’s place, then came back to life.  In real life, Jesus lived a perfect life. He never did anything wrong in his words or actions and even his thoughts were perfect.

The Bible says that Jesus died in our place – for our sins (treachery) – then He came back to life.

What do these Bible verses say about why Jesus died and what it means to us today?

“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”  Romans 5:8

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life.:  John 3:16

“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit.”   I Peter 3:18
