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.
