Bible movies are about as old as Hollywood itself. From black and white silent films all the way to present day, the Bible remains a popular source of material for movie producers to mine every few years. Their results of success are mixed. Some become cemented classics, while others drift into a well-deserved obscurity. Unsurprisingly, they’re also lightning rods for criticism and controversy, some drawing crowds and others getting banned outright. So, out of all the biblical films, which have elevated to the top? Here are Top 10 Epic Bible Movies All Time.

10 Jesus Christ Superstar

Released in 1973, Jesus Christ Superstar is a film adaptation of the rock opera with the same name and follows the last six days of Christ through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Roger Ebert considered it a triumph and even better than the production it adapted.

9 Last Days in the Desert

Last Days in the Desert is about Jesus spending 40 days in the wilderness, fasting and praying, and being tempted by Satan. Ewan McGregor plays Jesus and must decide how to help a family in crisis. It’s a slow burn story and McGregor’s performance often elevates it.

8 The Nativity Story

Directed by Catherine Hardwicke, The Nativity Story focuses primarily on Mary and Joseph as they travel to Bethlehem and the birth of Jesus.

7 The Prince of Egypt

The Prince of Egypt, by DreamWorks pictures, is the animated retelling of Moses and the exodus of Israelite slaves from Egypt. On its release, it received both solid box office numbers and critical praise. However, it also earned controversy in countries like Egypt and Malaysia where it was even banned.

6 The Gospel of John (2014)

The 2014 movie The Gospel of John is one of the first word-for-word film adaptations of the book and is incredibly accurate to the text. The characters speak in Aramaic in the background, and it took five years to make.

5 The Last Temptation of Christ

Directed by Martin Scorcese and starring Willem Dafoe, The Last Temptation of Christ was and remains another controversial film about Jesus. The Catholic Church, the Greek Orthodox Church, and Evangelical Christians all came out against it on its release, decrying it as blasphemous. Due to their protests, many theaters refused to screen the film, and Blockbuster, at the time, wouldn’t carry it in their stores.

4 The Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments is about as grand in scale as it is overwhelmingly long. Its total run time is three hours and forty minutes! Still, if you can make it through the long slog of this Exodus story starring Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner, you might come out on the other side feeling a little bit more cultured as a result.

3 Ben Hur (1959)

Calling Ben Hur a Bible movie is a bit of a stretch, but their tagline was A Tale of the Christ and does feature Jesus at critical moments in his life. Similar to The Ten Commandments, this film is a grand epic with a run time of three hours and thirty-two minutes. So if you plan to watch it, get comfortable.

2 Noah

Noah, directed by Darren Aronofsky, wasn’t exactly a box office or critical smash hit. Still, there’s a lot the film has to offer. Of the Biblical movies made over the years, it stands apart as both an exciting adventure and survival tale with plenty of grit and cinematic gravitas.

1 The Passion of the Christ

Perhaps of all the movies made about Jesus’s life, The Passion of the Christ stands as the best among them. Directed by Mel Gibson, the film details the final moments before Jesus is crucified and depicts a brutal and agonizing experience that was likely very true to life.
