in the text
Text quotes/ examples of forgiveness (make sure to tie back these examples specifically to how the Judeo- Christian value of forgiveness is relayed to children in The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe in secular terms, does this book require a prior understanding of the bible? Pay close attention specifically to the forgiveness given to/ earned by Edmund)
“Then be off home as quick as you can,” said the Faun, “and – c-can you ever forgive me for what I meant to do?”
“Why, of course I can,” said Lucy, shaking him heartily by the hand. “And I do hope you won’t get into dreadful trouble on my account.” (2.57-58
Peter turned at once to Lucy.
“I apologise for not believing you,” he said, “I’m sorry. Will you shake hands?”
“Of course,” said Lucy, and did. (6.12-14)
“Please – Aslan,” said Lucy, “can anything be done to save Edmund?”
“All shall be done,” said Aslan. “But it may be harder than you think.” And then he was silent again for some time. Up to that moment Lucy had been thinking how royal and strong and peaceful his face looked; now it suddenly came into her head that he looked sad as well. (12.21-22)
Aslan is willing to make any sacrifice necessary to show mercy to Edmund, but that doesn’t stop him from feeling sorry that such a sacrifice is necessary in the first place (THIS TYPE OF FORGIVENESS IS SIMILAR TO THE FORGIVENESS CHRIST GIVES TO JUDAS AFTER HIS OWN BETRAYAL)
“Here is your brother,” he said, “and – there is no need to talk to him about what is past.”Edmund shook hands with each of the others and said to each of them in turn, “I’m sorry,” and everyone said “That’s all right.” And then everyone wanted very hard to say something which would make it quite clear that they were all friends with him again – something ordinary and natural – and of course no one could think of anything in the world to say. (13.27)
