Her brother, Mike, wants to find a way to get rid of Freddy for good. The dream demon has his own plans.
Since that time, the world of Middle-Earth has fascinated readers and transformed lives. Now before I begin, I want to state that The Lord of the Rings can be enjoyed without reading through Christ-colored glasses and I will never accept the idea that The Lord of the Rings is a Christian allegory.
On the contrary, Tolkien detested allegory and stated himself that his novels were never written with the intent of preaching religion; however, Tolkien was always quick to admit that all of his works were written in the Christian tradition and therefore were full of Christian symbols.
Gandalf, Aragorn, and Samwise Gamgee. Unlike Aslan, in C. Gandalf the Grey 1. Gandalf was sent by the Valar from the land of Valinor to rescue the people of Middle-Earth from evil and to protect them from Sauron. For those who have not read The Silmarillion, the Valar are basically the gods and goddesses of Middle-Earth and Valinor is the land of bliss in which they dwell.
In The Silmarillion, Gandalf is introduced as a spirit named Olorin, and he only took on the flesh of men so that the people of Middle-Earth would trust him and have faith in his mission.
In a similar way, Christ left heaven to come to Earth and took on bodily form to rescue humanity from sin and Satan. When we first meet Gandalf in The Fellowship of the Ring, we encounter an old wizened man, with a long gray beard, bushy eyebrows, a flowing cloak, and a wooden staff worn from travel.
Like Jesus, everywhere Gandalf goes he seeks to help others, restore hope, and fight evil. He travels so extensively that the elves and men of Gondor call him Mithrandir which means: Also like Jesus, Gandalf possesses several different names that each have a unique meaning: IncanusLathspell, Mithrandir, Olorin, Tharkun, ect.
Gandalf Battle the Balrog Gandalf fights the Balrog to save his friends. When things become tough on the road, Gandalf and the entire Fellowship are forced into the Mines of Moria in an attempt to pass under the Misty Mountains.
The slow journey through the mountains comes to a hand-wringing climax when the Fellowship is chased by a fiery demon of the ancient world called a Balrog.
In this heart pounding moment, surrounded by fire, darkness, whizzing arrows, and terrified screams, Gandalf realizes that no one will escape the Moria alive unless he puts his life at stake for his friends. Standing on the bridge surrounded by darkness, Gandalf faces his enemy of flame and shadow, and willingly sacrifices his life to save his friends.
After falling from the bridge, Gandalf chases the great demon through the deepest and darkest catacombs of the Earth, and slays the Balrog.
This last exertion of power causes Gandalf to die. He becomes Gandalf the White and is no longer hidden under the veil of Gandalf the Gray. He reunites with Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli in Fangorn Forest, and orchestrates the forces of good to defeat Saruman and Sauron, by uniting Rohan, inspiring Gondor, and giving Frodo a chance to destroy the Ring and therefore Sauron forever.
The direct symbolism in these actions, can be discerned by a fifth grader. Aragorn the Ranger 2. Aragorn- The Healer and Glorious King Aragorn is a ranger of the North, who lives in obscurity and never seeks glory for himself. Tolkien describes Aragorn as someone that none of us would really be attracted to.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. Though Aragorn himself did not die, he willingly entered into a world in which the line between life and death is very blurred.
The first installment of the epic Lord of the Rings Trilogy was first published in Since that time, the world of Middle-Earth has fascinated readers and transformed lives. Today, I desire to delve into this incredible story, and share with you how Tolkien’s enduring faith is expressed in his novels.

Once Aragorn emerges from the dark Path of the Dead, he leads his newfound army of the dead to liberate Gondor from the forces of darkness. Finally, by his courage and excellent leadership, Aragorn leads an army that distracts Sauron, so that Frodo has a chance to destroy the Ring.
The Christ symbolism in Aragorn largely draws from the Jesus of Revelation. In Christian theology, Jesus Christ is going to return to the world and rescue all those who have faithfully served God.Fandoms Are Life, Life Is Fandoms.
