Best Movies About Jesus Christ

Which Jesus movie was the coolest, most influential and most touching?

The Top TenXW

1The Passion of the Christ

I love this movie, it shows that how He suffered for our sins. But I want to tell every viewers that, Love Him not only because He suffered but love Him because He loved us first and because of that love He suffered for us. So love Him, Obey Him, be faithfull to Him... amen.

I really loved the movie after watching it I really feel that he is the king of all kings and had really changes my view on god..

This Movie shows us how Jesus loves us that he had died on the cross for our sins. He had the horrific Death. In the Bible there is For God So Loved The World that he gave his one and only son that whoever believes in him shall not be perish but have an Eternal Life John 3.16. I had watch this Movie many times. Jesus is the Great Friend, there's no friend that have the great love that he will lay down his life for his friends. So Love Him, and follow him. So remember Jesus had Died For You, he always be there for You in good times and in bad times. He always Loves You.

It only makes you think what in god's name we did?

2Jesus of Nazareth

This is my favourite movie about Jesus, as it covers his whole life (^^ death ^^ resurrection) in great detail. It shows his relationship with his followers, his mother, and his disciples. It's great for kids to watch too! A great family movie to watch leading up to Good Friday ^^ Easter Sunday.

It focuses also on the teachings of Jesus and his words of wisdom as well as his miracles instead of just his death and resurrection. It may be a bit long but it's well worth the watch. :D

This film is amazingly true to what Jesus must really have been like. The spirituality, gentleness, goodness and compassion that Robert Powell projects are spellbinding. In scenes like the feast in Matthew's house, where Jesus tells the story of the Eight Beatitudes, and in the Sermon on the Mount, it is like seeing and hearing Jesus himself speak. Throughout the film, the casting is excellent - I think particularly of Peter, John and Mary Magdalen; but even the lesser parts are played with absolute conviction. This is one of the best films made, by any standards, and for a Christian, watching it is a truly religious experience.

I love my Lord Jesus Christ!

Although this film has some good points, it is ultimately blasphemous. I've watched it twice now, and have been sufficiently shocked to determine not to do so again.

Jeremy Sisto is well chosen: he looks the part and is sweet, gentle and loving; but he is at the mercy of mistaken directing and a trivializing script in which words from the bible which everyone knows, are abbreviated and modernized, losing much of their meaning in the process.

In trying to present Jesus as an ordinary man, the film goes too far, and the result is that he appears as a downbeat, hippy type, who is even capable of committing venial sins. It is very wrong to show him as capable of petty irritation, as when he wrestles with tools and throws them about after the death of Joseph (as opposed to his driving sinful traders from the Temple, which is done in a spirit of righteous anger). More than once, he is also shown dancing wildly, which is incompatible with the dignity of Jesus. The invention of ...more

This is a very good interpretation of what has happened. Ispecially I like the comments of the evil and the answer of Jesus to those comments.
What we must understand is that Jesus died for all of us. He showed how one can love others, he showd the true love, and the rest is our choice, we chose the Good or the Bad.

This has to be the worst of the Jesus movies. Jesus was not an insecure airhead as depicted in this totally flawed film. Couture must have read the Gospels backwards to have so mangled the story of Jesus. This goes far beyond "artistic liberties", and is closer to premeditated assault. I'd like to press criminal charges against everyone culpable in this production.

I believed most of all this is my best pick

4King of Kings

Had hoped that you were making the king available for download! What good is it to vote if we can't see it?!
This is the greatest time of the year to get your Top 10 list viewed and responses. A listing of names only gets things started! How about following up now with downloads?! Thanks!

This is such a great movie. It showed he was man. Even showed anger. This movie drew you in could feel his feelings. The actor who played the role of Jesus showed every feeling through his eyes. If you don't have a deep love and compassion for our Lord you will after this movie.

I love king of kings! Wait a minute... Where. Is. Godspell?

God bless you all for making such a film that inspire everyone god bless in jesus name amen

5The Greatest Story Ever Told


I would love to watch this movie because it don't only tell us how JESUS have suffer for us but it gives us courage and it let us know that we are never alone. AND most importantly
It let us know that JESUS LOVES US NO MATTER WHAT.

I think it was well acted with a lot of stars especially Charleston Heston & Telly Savalas

Greatest actor depicting jesus

6Visual Bible: Gospel of John

This is the greatest story and movie ever told about our Lord JESUS CHRIST, The LORD OF LORDS AND KING OF KINGS and true lover of all mankind. The movie was the only verse by verse of the greatest book in the bible, the book of John. The actors were anointed. Truly Lord JESUS is the SAVIOR and LORD of the world.

awesome movie! just love the way the actor portrays jesus' character

I think the actor did well on this. Same actor was nominated sometime in 90s.
Not looking for the best graphic but the performance makes up for it.
Love it.

Like this movie very much god bless you all those are working for one king king of king in jesus name amen

7The Last Temptation of Christ

the only movie to focus on jesus as a person, so we may understand him rather than just see him suffer on and on like in the passion which had no chARACTER DEVELOPMENT

I tried to watch this movie with an open mind. Nothing against the actors, and despite the fact this is movie is a poor representation of Jesus, this was just a bad movie. This would would have been just as bad if the same writers did a story about any other person. I watched it through just to get an honest assessment of this film. Just really bad.

This movie is disgusting. It is not about Jesus the Lord and Saviour of all men. It is made by men who wish to slander all of His meaning.

Anyone who is offended by this film obviously wasn't paying attention. Before the movie even starts, text on the screen informs the viewer that the film isn't based on the gospels. It's a fantastic film if you can leave your preconceptions at the door.

9Ben Hur

If you people don't know what this movie is, then you've been living under a rock. This is one of the biggest movies of all time which has won 11 oscars.

Despite Heston being in it, this is a great biblical-era movie.

10The Miracle Maker

This movie has really helped me to catch the reality of the person of Jesus and helps me to relate to Him today as He is a resurrected man that we are to actually have a relationship with.

This was definitely the best, closest to the Biblical account, and most accurate in terms of what the people might have looked like. I wish it could be shown on network T.V..

Straightforward telling of the life of Jesus as recorded in the Bible. I loved the different animation techniques used to illustrate flashbacks. The stop action animation was very impressive.

This movie is so brilliant crafted in the stop motion animation world I give it a rating of 1 million stars & thumbs up. It is a film all families can sit down together an watch.

11The Gospel According to St. Matthew

If this is the movie in which Jesus is played by Bruce Marchiano, then it's the best Jesus movie I've ever seen. He is portrayed as a very human man AND the blessed Son of God; he laughed, smiled, hugged and kissed His followers as true children of His Father in heaven.

13Jesus Christ Superstar

I don't understand how one person can only watch one minute of it and form an opinion one way or another, let alone take it out of context, or rather, take the point it is emphasizing (heavy emotions Jesus was really going through) as a mockery. It was illustrating his struggles, not the author questioning him. This movie does not downplay Jesus at all, it shows His sacrifice and the human aspect of His time on Earth. He was a human and the Son of God. If He were just God, God could have just come out of the clouds and speak to everyone. He had to go through the struggles. I strongly encourage you to watch the whole movie in that vein and I can't guarantee you will like it, but I feel you'll come away with a better impression than one minute. You have to look at different people's perspectives, like Judas' or Mary. (Though I do think it incorrectly makes the mistake everyone makes in thinking Mary was the prostitute that was addressed in the biblical passage right before Mary was ...more

This is an incredibly brilliant film. The story of Jesus is told through music with passion you feel to your core. I loved it as a kid and I still watch it every Easter now with my own children. The music is some of Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rices best. This is definitely my choice as the best Jesus movie ever made. I love it!

It's a great movie and its music was too good... more of that composition with modern world is fabulous... that claim that Jesus was also relevant in now days.

The people who made this movie do not know the Bible, the word of God, very poor.

17God's Not Dead

Abysmal performances and harmful stereotypes are riddled throughout this painful movie from start to finish. - TheRiceKing

God cannot die, yes this is true. This movie speak up my mind.

All I can say is God is really not Dead

18Son of God

It shows the life of Jesus, his love and teaching. It goes a little more detailed than Passion of Christ. It really shows that Jesus had love for every single person and even for the ones that wrongfully mistreated him even down to the time of his death on the cross. This movie is inspiring.

I loved the mini series The Bible, and although I have seen many biblical movies and stories of Jesus, in my opinion actor Diogo Morgado did the best interpretation of Jesus I have ever seen. He portrayed a Jesus with human and God-given emotions, thoughts and actions. I am in awe of the acting job Diogo did! This movie is number one to me.

My favorite movie of all time it goes deeper than passion and Diogo Morgado did a fantastic job and really brought me out of my seat. This movie was moving and inspirational.

Jesus, he loves people more than himself.. He is the SON of GOD

I don't know how Christians are gonna react when they see this movie on the list.

This musical is based on the life of Jesus Christ according to the Gospel of St. Matthew. However, what makes this movie special is that it is set in modern times. It shows us the teachings of Christ in a way never done before. Excellent songs, entertaining story and a powerful message.
