6 Best Movies about Jesus
Its Christmas time and people all over the world remember this as the day Jesus Christ was born. Even Non-Christians believe in Jesus Christ and some even celebrate it as the think of him as a reformist, a believer who looked into the future and whose message of love, forgiveness and brotherhood was so powerful that it breaks traditions and long held hatred even now. Jesus Christ lived for a short while in this world, but in his 33 years in the earth, he brought about such a change that the world still celebrates his birth. Hollywood was never far behind in celebrating his life and bringing it to millions through movies. There are a lot of movies that were made on Jesus Christ and here are some of the best movies about him.
1. The Greatest Story Ever Told
This is a movie that describes the whole life of Jesus Christ, right from his birth to his preaching and his eventual death at the hands of the Romans. For those who do not know much about Jesus Christ, this would be a good beginning to know what his life was all about.
2. Jesus of Nazareth
Another great movie that speaks about the whole life of Jesus Christ; this movie also dwells on Jesus’ relationship with his mother, his disciples and his followers. The characterization was also good and this can easily be one of the best movies on Christ.
3. The last Temptation of Christ
This movie is special in the sense that it brings out the human aspect of Jesus Christ as it deals with the forty days of fasting that he went through and all the temptations he resisted from the devil. He resisted the temptation and showed the world that he was no human and this movie brings it out brilliantly.
4. The passion of Jesus Christ
This is one of the bloodiest movies about Christ. The cruxification scene was long drawn out and brought into fore the suffering Jesus Christ went through when he was nailed to the cross. Although the movie and its director Mel Gibson got into trouble for anti-Antisemitism, this movie still remains one of the best movies made on Jesus Christ.
5. The Miracle Maker
This is more like a fairy tale, a movie that can be watched with the whole family and a movie that can be used to talk to children about Christ and his teachings. The movie is like reading one of those old books and seeing the characters come alive in front of you.
