If you don't know, it would be hard to explain since you probably aren't acquainted with the Christian faith. It would only make sense to someone who is knowledgable about Christianity and the purpose of Jesus becoming God the Father's Sacrificial Lamb for the sin of mankind.

C.S. Lewis made some vague analogies to some Christian doctrines in his fantasy works, but I think many Christians today blow the Christian implications way out of proportion in these works. Lewis did have some very direct works dealing with Christian issues, but these fantasy stories are more for children's entertainment than deep adult Christian theology. But of course, many Americans who are obsessed with movies and entertainment can somehow spiritualize every little thing that happens on the big screen. Mel Gibson picked his nose, hey look, that symbolized the resurrection! He's such a great Christian role model!
