He knew that Death would work backwards- there is no 'even' in the text as was in the film.
Notice his use of start- meaning perhaps that he didn't know how long it would take. Therefore he could give no promise to Peter because he wasn't at the battle for the majority of it.
Sorry you are wrong for in the book Aslan jumped for joy and played leap frog ect with Lucy and Susan it was the reaction of surprise on his resurrection, yes he did say all that death would work backwards ect only after he came back and not before. In the book Susan asked him could he not do something against the deep magic to save Edmund, he said work against the deep magic? what he was saying he could not work against his father for it was he who put the laws in Narnia not Aslan. If you want to compeare Aslan with Jesus even Jesus on the cross said Father why have you forsaken me.
