Actually, I am recalling watching movie Jesus back in 1988 in Ukraine. Correst me if I am wrong, but I think it was just filmed. Communists still had power. The government-owned hall of the cinema was rented by Baptist Church. Such an opportunity to watch a Christian movie was very impressive at that time! That was the first case in the city!

King of Kings - Do you mean the silent version, or the 1961 Jeffrey Hunter Version (which included a number of cast members from Ben-Hur)?

The Greatest Story Ever Told - Should have been titled The Most Boring, Plodding Movie About Jesus Ever Made. (P.S. Why did Judas throw himself onto the burning altar?)

Jesus of Nazareth - Robert Powell looked and acted like someone strung out on speed. (P.S. Why did Nicodemus come to Jesus IN THE DAYTIME?)

There are many other Jesus movies that should/could be listed:
Godspell
Pasolini's Gospel According to St. Matthew
From the Manger to the Cross (silent)
Jesus Christ, Superstar (2 versions)
The Jesus Movie
The Visual Bible The Gospel of Matthew
The Visual Bible The Gospel of John
Ben-Hur (silent and 1959)
The Passion of the Christ
etc.

I actually enjoy the silent Movie version of Ben Hur.

While a fictional account, its presentation of the Savior in vignettes hit major Highlights and is definitely more spiritual than the modern Ben Hur.

I've seen many, but i don't remember what they were called, except the latest one that came out, "Passion of the Christ".

There isn't a choice for my favourite movie about the life of Christ...The Davinci Code...you could have at least included an 'other' option.

Can you expound on "why" for The Davinci Code?

Any poll w/o a 42/Other/I like to answer polls option is incomplete.
