Top Ten Movies To Watch This Resurrection Day

Top Ten Movies To Watch This Resurrection Day

By Movieguide®

The editors at Movieguide® have put together a list of great movies to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus this Easter…

BEN-HUR

Quality:
****
Content:
+3 Some minor questionable elements. (Media-wisdom is suggested to discuss.)
BEN HUR ranks among the most honored of films, taking 11 of 12 Academy awards. This beautifully crafted film begins with the birth of Christ and demonstrates a journey of faith of one man, Judah Ben-Hur, who goes from prince to prisoner to champion charioteer to Christian. This is a film that every family should see and cherish as a defender of faith and Christian values.

THE CASE FOR CHRIST

Quality:
****
Content:
+2 Moderately questionable elements.
THE CASE FOR CHRIST is the inside story of how Chicago Tribune journalist Lee Strobel set out to disprove Christianity when his wife, Leslie, became a Christian and challenged Lee’s atheist beliefs. THE CASE FOR CHRIST is a terrific drama reminiscent of ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN, with its own examples of excellent acting. It also brilliantly lays out the facts confirming Jesus Christ’s resurrection, but does contain some tense moments and alcohol use requiring caution for younger children.

THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE

Quality:
****
Content:
+1 Moderately questionable elements. (Discernment required for young children.)
THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, based on C. S. Lewis’s popular Christian fable, tells the story of four English children, who enter the land of Narnia, where they meet Aslan, the son of the Emperor-Beyond-the-Sea, who rescues the land from the evil White Witch. Despite some minor changes from the book, THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE retains most of its Christian focus and is tremendously exciting, thrilling and redemptive.

BREAKTHROUGH (2019)

Quality:
****
Content:
+1 Moderately questionable elements. (Discernment required for young children.)
BREAKTHROUGH is a must-see, entertaining, powerful, convicting, heartrending story about the real-life incident of a boy who fell through some ice and had no pulse for a longer period than any doctor thought possible when he then miraculously revived. Each character, believers and unbelievers, undergoes a tremendous journey in BREAKTHROUGH, an inspiring movie that will make you laugh and cry.

THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST

Quality:
****
Content:
-2 Extreme caution for older teenagers and adults.
THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, Mel Gibson’s masterpiece, covers the time period from the Garden of Gethsemane to the Cross and beyond. The movie goes beyond most Passion Plays to highlight in stark, dark, and intense terms the spiritual warfare raging around Jesus Christ during His Passion. It is a must-see movie, beautifully directed and powerfully acted.

THE ROBE

Quality:
****
Content:
+4 Biblical, usually Christian, worldview, with no questionable elements whatsoever.
THE ROBE, the first movie released in CinemaScope, is a Biblical epic focusing on the Roman tribune put in charge of carrying out the crucifixion of Jesus. This powerful, redemptive story is similar to that of Paul who at first sought to persecute Christians but then became one.

RESURRECTION (2021)

Quality:
****
Content:
+4 Biblical, usually Christian, worldview, with no questionable elements whatsoever.
RESURRECTION is an entertaining movie about the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, streaming on Discovery+. RESURRECTION has jeopardy throughout, is very careful about not being too graphic, and may err only in the diversity of the apostles.

VISUAL BIBLE: THE GOSPEL OF JOHN

Quality:
****
Content:
+4 Biblical, usually Christian, worldview, with no questionable elements whatsoever.
THE GOSPEL OF JOHN is a spectacular, well-directed, well-acted, word for word version of the Gospel of John. Christians need to go into all the world to bring their friends to watch the Good News of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in THE GOSPEL OF JOHN.

QUO VADIS

Quality:
****
Content:
+4 Biblical, usually Christian, worldview, with no questionable elements whatsoever.
QUO VADIS is an epic presentation of the conflict between the paganism of Nero’s Rome and early Christianity, in a story involving a Roman general who falls in love with a Christian woman. This profound story of Christian martyrs is one of the all-time great epics, but it does contain carefully presented images of Christians being killed for sport in Nero’s Coliseum and thus needs a slight caution for young children.

RISEN

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
RISEN is about a Roman soldier and non-believer, who hunts for Jesus Christ’s body, not realizing that Jesus has risen from the dead. RISEN is almost like the follow up movie to Mel Gibson’s THE PASSION, with some war violence and killing, but with a powerful Christian, biblical worldview promoting the reality of Jesus Christ’s physical resurrection.
