Default Aslan weeps

When Aslan weeps for Digory's mother
"For the tawny face was bent down near his own and (wonder of wonders) great shining tears stood in the Lion's eyes. They were such big bright tears compared to Digory's own that for a moment he felt as if the Lion must really be sorrier about his mother than he was himself."
Is this a parallel of Jesus weeping for Lazarus?
"Jesus wept."
John 11:35
