Good Friday and Aslan

“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 farther back,
into the stillness and 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 backwards.”

--from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis
