The Top Ten

The 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..

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
The best film I have ever seen about jesus. Robert powell is the biggest actor ever. But the directors are fool. Τhey didn t invite robert in another movie. I like the way, which he played jesus. And that is the reasons why I like this movie!

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 one is more real... They didn't make Jesus look like a cold, jugdemental person. They portrayed him as the loving person he truly is.
I really enjoyed this movie. They showed him as a real person.

4The 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
Much better than the passion or as I called it "The Suffering of Christ" because it goes into the personality of Jesus Christ and his message of love.
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.

5King 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!
I love king of kings! Wait a minute... Where. Is. Godspell?
Fantastic movie on the life of God

6The Greatest Story Ever Told
A truly moving film.

7Visual Bible: Gospel of John
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.
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.

8The 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..

this has to be one of the best. otherwise it wouldn't be on this list of best works of art on a mythical shepherd

10Jesus Christ Superstar
its 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.
I have only watched a minuete of it and I didn't like it. In one part for example, They were singning in a garden before Jesus was arrested and crucified and seemed to make fun of the heavy emotions Jesus was probably really going through. This movie doesn't seem biblical/truthful and I don't like the downplaying message it sends to viewers like me about someone whom I care greatly about.
Where is Godspell? The above film's music may be Broadways best.

The Contenders

11Ben Hur
Despite Heston being in it, this is a great biblical-era movie.

12Son 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.
Very good movie.
The Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado was super.

13Mary, Mother of Jesus

14The Nativity Story
Wonderful movie loved it learned a lot from it

15Jesus Camp


17The Gospel According to St. Matthew

18Monty Python's Life of Brian
