4 Movies About The Life Of Jesus To Watch This Lent

by Easter, Jesus Christ, Lent, Movie Reviews and Recommendations

It seems that Hollywood is starting to realize the power of the name of Jesus and is responding by creating more movies about the life of Jesus.  Well, maybe. At the very least, producers have certainly realized the entertainment value of the story of His Life, Death, and Resurrection.  In fact, each of the shows featured focuses on one aspect of the greatest story ever told, though some may contain a few historical inaccuracies.

Because of this, we encourage you to use viewer discretion when watching. However, there is no need to let that stop you from seeing and supporting these films.  A good response, especially to those being shown in theaters, will let the film industry know that these are the types of wholesome films that movie-goers desire to see.

4 Movies About the Life of Jesus to Watch this Lent

We encourage you to take the opportunity to evangelize through these films.  Invite a friend or family member to watch with you.  Afterwards, discuss and critique the show.  If there are inaccuracies, point them out and use it as a starting place to lead your friend in the direction of truth.  Reflect on the character of Jesus and the part of His life portrayed in the film.  Don’t be afraid to share your own story and faith journey.

We would love to hear your thoughts and critiques of these shows after you see them.  Please respond in the comments with your review!
