Movies of Jesus Christ

Christianity is a widely practiced religion now and its no wonder that there are so many movies based on Jesus Christ. Here are a select pick of ten must-watch movies!

1

The Passion of the Christ

The Passion of the Christ

Highly controversial and acclaimed, this movie is filmed in Aramaic and the vernacular languages of Jesus' time to make it seem as real as possible. It is gut wrenching and there are many folks unable to finish watching the movie even in a couple of tries!

2

The Miracle Maker

The Miracle Maker

The experiences of Jesus and his followers are depicted by way of puppets. It would be very engaging and interesting to watch this, and will be a good change from the usual live-action movies.

3

Jesus (1999)

Jesus (1999)

What was produced in 1999 to be a two part TV series seems to have garnered some attention. And there are people who didn't quite like Jesus Christ being a little buddy-ish in here, it seems.

4

Jesus of Nazareth

Jesus of Nazareth

This series is said to depict the Jewish life that Jesus led, to show the world how authentic a movie on Jesus could be produced. It is said to be the best on-screen production based on Jesus.

5

The Messiah

The Messiah

"This version of the story emphasizes the brotherhood of men more than Christian faith, per se, but in doing so it also underscores the fact, often ignored by films in this genre, that the disciples went out and spread Jesus' message even while the Master was still alive."

6

Godspell

Godspell

This musical has modern New York as the backdrop, and sure is full of surprises for it deviates from the normal lot. Watch it to know that special factor eh?

7

The Greatest Story Ever Told

There are opinions that this movie is an expensive flop, and that it sounds too American. Which makes it all the more intriguing to watch and find out.

8

The Gospel According to St. Matthew

The Gospel According to St. Matthew

"While the film is often hailed for stripping the story down to its basics, it also reflects Pasolini's belief in finding transcendence within the everyday"

Now doesn't that score it as a good movie?

9

The King of Kings

The King of Kings

There's no need to guess that this movie was popular after reading this: "The King of Kings was such a big hit that no Hollywood studio would make another life-of-Jesus movie until the 1960s"
Sounds like a true must-watch!

10

The Life and Passion of Jesus Christ

The Life and Passion of Jesus Christ

This is a 'visual work of art' where Jesus' life and ministry work are portrayed well, with finally concluding with a scene where Jesus is seated at the right hand of God in heaven. Intriguing, yes?
