Lamp Post

Is the lamp post in the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe an allusion?

I was wondering if the lamp post in this book/movie is an allusion to the bible. I just read the first 3 chapters of the book revelations in the bible and it mentions the 7 lamp posts and i was wondering if the lamp post in the movie had anything to do with that?

To your question. I'm foggy, but I'm quite certain it is a biblical allusion and I think Lil nailed the verse it's referencing. The lamp post, beyond allusion, is a narrative device to let the children find their way home. Allusions typically fall in line with their physical purpose in the narrative, but not always. There is credence to your theory, and it's well worth exploring.

@ MAkav3li - I don't care what you personally believe, your accusations about Lewis are ignorant, unfounded, and infuriating. "Religious garble" is as far from what Lewis authored as anything imaginable. The man wasn't the Tim Lahaye of his generation for crying out loud. He was a brilliant theologian who approached christianity from a secular humanist perspective, and much like Christ himself did not use the faith as a means to negatively judge humanity but as a way to provide insight into human nature and encourage positive action from people. "Liked to think of himself as an intellectual"? He was an intellectual, of the highest order, with not only quality work to prove it but prestigious academic accomplishments and positions to support it. And your last statement is ignorant on two counts: First, Lewis was far from being just a children's author, you twit. Second, children's authors are routinely praised for their cleverness and insight.

Your ignorance of literature, and, apparently, matters of philosophy and religion is despicable. And the great thing about not having any personal religious affiliations is that I can tell you to go jump off a cliff and stop wasting air without it casting any negative light on anything but myself. You should consider whether you have anything besides biased, uninformed opinions before you answer questions and make a jackass of yourself, you pathetic little prick.
