Bible Movies Back on the Rise

It’s easy for Christians to agree that the Bible is the epitome of all the best stories ever told. Countless fictitious movies have been made with a very strong resemblance to the Christian faith base. From the Chronicles of Narnia to more secular-based books, like the Lord of the Rings, but in the 1950s-60s, on the brink of the Cold war, Bible movies were a huge trend. From Samson and Delilah to the Ten Commandments, movie-makers produced more than ten movies all themed around Biblical perspective. And now, on the threshold of 2014, movie makers are bringing back the real deal for a second go.

noah-poster-russell-crowe-teaserSon of God will  be the first in this Bible movie rage, releasing in theaters February 28, and no, we’re not talking about Hercules. Actor, Diogo Morgado, appears with the familiar beard and soft eyes that can only be recognized as yet another depiction of Jesus Christ.

March 8, Russel Crowe will be returning to his sailor days as the title role of Noah with Harry Potter actress Emma Watson as his daughter-in-law. This action packed story we’ve been told since Sunday School is sure to come to life on the big screen.

And, though a trailer hasn’t yet been released, promises of a movie, Mary Mother of Christ, featuring a seventeen-year-old Israeli actress will also be seen coming into theaters.

The real question is, however, are Bible-based films returning this year a good thing? Or will it result in irreparable damage to the Christian belief system?

  1. I’ve read enough about first 2 movies you mentioned to say, I think they will gave a good influence on our society, just because movies can have a major impact on keeping Christian ideas alive in our culture. However, I don’t put much stock in anyone getting saved by watching any movie. The holy spirit can use a movie to bring someone closer to being saved. But a movie without the holy spirit is just a movie.
