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.

This is the most moving of all the films about Christ. I don't usually cry when watching a film, but this was gut-wrenching, as it really was. To know that Christ walked into this knowing what would happen simply rips our hearts out. And if we believe Jesus was the Christ, but also completely MAN, then the suffering had to be REAL. Otherwise, he didn't really feel the pain and suffering and then the entire point of the crucifixion is lost. So, gory and bloody and horrible as depicted, it needs to be for us to even begin to understand the sacrifice made by the Father--to submit his beloved Son to such as this--because of God's love of US. The most powerful scene for me was Christ stumbling and seeing his mother Mary, saying to her that "I make all things new." I was a Christian from childhood, but this line brought me back to the point. I need to watch this whenever I feel myself slipping.

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..

Amazing movie ever seen about Jesus Christ... every time I see it, tears come out of my eyes... The true temptations faced by Christ our Lord.. Must watch...

2Jesus of Nazareth

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.

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 is my favorite movie of Jesus.

3King 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?

Great film glad to see its in the top five.

4Jesus

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

I think this is my favorite film depicting Jesus as a real human. Like ALL film, it is our human interpretation of Christ. There are scenes which show him reacting as a real man would react. The Bible (and almost all theologies) tell us he was MAN, experiencing human emotions. It is tempting to think of Him as God walking around in human form, but not really feeling frustration, anger, grief, laughter, and real temptation. This depiction lets me see him as a real man who picked up His mission given to him by His Father. Did Jesus not ask his Father to take the cup of unbelievable suffering from him, if possible. This helps to remind me that he knows exactly what I'm feeling because he felt it, too. And I can turn to HIM in all circumstances with all my needs and know He understands and is present always to help me and to forgive my sins. He is always with me.

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.

The best of all

5The Greatest Story Ever Told

THE SOUND TRACK REALLY MAKES THE MOVIE COME TOGETHER. ESPEICIALY WHEN HE RAISNES LAZURES

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.

The most reverential film about Christ I have ever seen. Please take into account the effort Mr. George Stevens gave in order to produce this film. He poured his heart out in order to make the Greatest Story ever Told.

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.

7The Nativity Story

My husband and I watch this on Christmas Eve every year. The betrayal of Mary and especially Joseph is especially realistic and spiritually moving.

The nativity Story is a great movie if you haven't seen it I suggest you rent it

Great film. Truly anointed. How the Word became flesh. Coming from glory for us all, out of love beyond our imagination.

8The Last Temptation of Christ

What was the "last temptation? " The temptation to not be Jesus Christ at all, to turn his back on his mission and get married, live a normal life, raise some kids. Not die a painful early death. It is completely non-biblical, of course. But if you have ever wondered if there were days when just being a normal man sounded pretty darn good to Jesus, and then you wondered how he summoned the internal strength to resist this "last temptation" and fulfill his mission and die on the cross, with full awareness of the beauty of the life he was giving up, the life he would never be allowed to complete as a human being on earth, this is the movie for you. Very much a "movie of ideas" that sets out to explore this question, and a powerful job of it.

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

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.

This blows Mel Gibson's The Torture Porn of the Christ out of the water in every single regard.

9Ben Hur

A great film. About ones encounter with the Lord, depicts truly how the Lord loves you and never leaves you. Should be in top five.

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.

Top five, a must! A great film honouring the Lord and knowing He is with you always.

This is the best movie of Christ in my opinion.

10The 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.

Powerful and astonishing representation the struggle to communicate God's love

The Contenders

11The 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.

12The Visual Bible: Matthew

By far the most accurate portrayal of Jesus...and verse by verse movie of the Gospel Of Matthew.

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.

Best musical I have ever seen

14Judas

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

15Risen

This film looks at the passion through the eyes of an unbeliever, a Roman soldier. First film that I have seen with Christ's ascension. Well worth seeing.

Fantastic movie. I loved it. Showed the Resurrection from Roman view and also showed disciples impact from Resurrection

Wow! I'm surprised this movies isn't in the top 3! If never believed, you will... If you never cared, you will.. If you were blind you'll see.. It's s a MUST!

I have no words, it's outstanding.

16Mary, Mother of Jesus
17Son 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.
WHATEVER CRITIC HAS SAID ANYTHING BAD ABOUT THIS MOVIE NEEDS CHRIST MORE THAN ever.

A beautiful movie indeed. I should've visited the theatre during the movie release

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

18God's Not Dead

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

This is a great movie which shows that we should no longer be ashamed with our Lord and freely speak about Him.

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

What's this movie doing on this list?!?!?! - clusium

20Godspell

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.
