Most Christian movies suck. But after my awakening I had an urge to devour stories about Jesus Christ. Below are my favorite movies based on the story of Jesus Christ, starting with my most favorite.
This movie helped me relate to Jesus as a human being who experienced intense suffering just like me.
The Case for Christ (2017)
A great movie for the skeptic in everyone who needs a boost of faith in believing that the story of Jesus Christ is worth believing in.
Come Sunday (2018)
A popular pastor who preaches that hell is real and that everyone needs saved to avoid it has an awakening and realizes that everyone is already saved. Based on a true story.
All star cast directed by Steven Spielberg. Tells the true story of a slave who commits mutiny aboard a Spanish slave ship that lands in the United States. While on trial for murder, one of his friends discovers the story of Jesus through an illustrated version of The Bible.
Mary Magdalene (2019)
Joaquin Phoenix plays a beautiful Jesus in this story of his follower, Mary. The movie challenges you to believe that the kingdom of heaven is accessible on earth. Right here, right now.
The Mission (1986)
This movie shows how a violent person can awaken and open their heart, even a mass murderer. It also shows how faith in Jesus love is more powerful than guns and war.
