Despite our so-called secular era, Jesus is an endlessly fascinating subject for artists, including filmmakers. The range and variety of Jesus films is extraordinary, including a growing number of non-western versions. Even the worst have flashes of insight and beauty; the best inspire deep reflection on the character at the heart of the Christian faith. Study some of the ways that Jesus has been depicted in film and how various portrayals converse with Scripture and Christian thought throughout the centuries.
