Easter Films

For you film buffs, here's a few with an Easter theme:

  • The Case For Christ (now playing in theaters, about investigative journalist, Lee Strobel, who tried to disprove the resurrection, to save his converted wife and daughter from what he considered nonsense)

  • Risen (similar to The Robe, about a Roman soldier seeking answers)

  • Ben Hur (there's been remakes, but Charlton Heston is still the best)

  • The Miracle Maker (excellent clay animation)

  • The Passion of the Christ (Mel Gibson explores the suffering of Christ) 

  • Jesus of Nazareth (in my opinion, still the best treatment on the life of Christ)

  • The Body (Antonio Bandera plays a priest investigating the unearthing of a crucified by body, dating to the first century AD. While this is not your typical faith-affirming Christian film, neither is it hostile or antagonistic.)

  • The Fourth Wiseman (Starring Charlie Sheen. Although this is great Christmas story, it is perfect for Easter as well.)
