The Best Jesus Christ Movies of All Time

List Criteria: Movie featuring Jesus Christ as a character.

A list of the best-ever films featuring Jesus of Nazareth as a main character, ordered by the Ranker community. Vote for your picks for the essential movies about Jesus. (See here for a complete list of all movies featuring Jesus Christ as a character.) These are the best Jesus Christ movies of all time and are a great way to learn more about Jesus' life.

Films about Jesus range from serious dramas and recreations aiming for realism and accuracy to outrageous comedies that take Bible stories as a starting point for satire. In many of these films, the traditional Jesus story is tweaked or reworked from a modern perspective (as in Jean-Luc Godard's "Hail Mary.") Which movies are the most essential cinematic depictions of Jesus, however, remains up to you. Vote on the best Jesus movies and use this Jesus Christ movies list to learn about films you didn't know about and share your knowledge with others.
