    The passion of Christ and prince of Egypt and the Ten Commandments

  2. Nehemiah Nixson on June 26, 2019 at 5:16 am

    OF COURSE WHITE WASHED EGYPTIANS 10:59

  3. JVLITZ on June 26, 2019 at 5:17 am

    Do top upcoming movies based on the bible

  4. Adriano Ramos on June 26, 2019 at 5:18 am

    Hey guys!! Love your top10s. Is there any top 10 movies about real miracles? If not… wouldn’t be about time??

  5. Filip Jeglic on June 26, 2019 at 5:19 am

    I thought Noah was pretty good. But for me those stone giants kinda ruined it (and some other things, but I watched this movie some time ago, so I don’t remember that well).

  6. Paradise Soon on June 26, 2019 at 5:19 am

    Some of these films mock God
    That is not good .
    The passion of Christ was very good
    Although Jesus did not die on the cross
    He died on a torture stack .
    It’s not good to mock God
    It’s very offensive. I love the Ten Commandments .
    Charlton Heston great actor

  7. Aitbek Samatov on June 26, 2019 at 5:21 am

    Gibson is Top

  8. Smashproplaya ! on June 26, 2019 at 5:21 am

    Video starts: “Say your prayers”

    Rameses: “NOOOOOOOOOOOO”

  9. Polumathēs on June 26, 2019 at 5:22 am

    Noah suuuuuuuucked

  10. Randy Rogers on June 26, 2019 at 5:25 am

    I am not a religious man but still The Ten Commandments is my favorite movie of all time.

  11. Bradin Stoops on June 26, 2019 at 5:26 am

    Passion of the Christ is "controversial for it’s extreme violence." So you’re saying the crucifixion wasn’t violent???

  12. Carlo Nassar on June 26, 2019 at 5:26 am

    Prince of Egypt has got to be one of *the* best. Though I also enjoyed the old Ben-Hur. Haven’t seen the new one.

  13. João Vítor Freitas da Silva on June 26, 2019 at 5:27 am

    The Gospel According to John is very underrated (the movie, if you don’t know it exists ;-;)

  14. Neos of Gen Z on June 26, 2019 at 5:27 am

    If 10 commandmensts isn’t first, Passion of the Christ 2nd. You are idiots.

  15. Jet Kismet on June 26, 2019 at 5:30 am

    this list was trash. Clearly, it was too based on boxoffice success and not on quality of film. If it were based on anything a countdown like this SHOULD have been based on, ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings" would have been somewhere on it. I call shenanigans.

  16. Aquilla Fleetwood on June 26, 2019 at 5:31 am

    Google the Northern Cross, by Aquilla Fleetwood, youtube!
    Google Night Signs by Aquilla Fleetwood, youtube!

  17. XxSWAGGERxX on June 26, 2019 at 5:31 am

    “If realism isn’t your thing” you realise what kind of list this is right?

  18. mae villanueva on June 26, 2019 at 5:32 am

    How can a bible movie be a comedy

  19. Ron Aromin on June 26, 2019 at 5:32 am

    "The Ten Commandments" is Legendary movie.

  20. Namath4ever on June 26, 2019 at 5:33 am

    I agree with #1 and #2, but I would flip them. Ben-Hur is the GREATEST Jesus movie ever made and one of the BEST movies ever made period.

  21. Ariel Siboniy on June 26, 2019 at 5:34 am

    Did that guy really fee run over by horses in Ben Hur?

  22. Isiah Arnett on June 26, 2019 at 5:35 am

    All of the Israelites in the bible are in fact so-called Negros today

  23. Lukyn cz on June 26, 2019 at 5:37 am

    10. Jesus – 1979

  24. shellshock10 on June 26, 2019 at 5:37 am

    I wonder why dreamwork didn’t keep making those biblical animated movies, with characters such as Elijah, Noah, Jonah, David and Solomon. that would’ve been awesome.

  25. Lamar Davis on June 26, 2019 at 5:38 am

    So Jesus of Nazareth doesn’t make the the list or even an honorable mention?

  26. Prof Nazrul Islam on June 26, 2019 at 5:43 am

    The 10 commandments my greatest film . Cecile B D Milles a true man of faith.

  27. PLANTING SEED on June 26, 2019 at 5:45 am

    The Gospel of John is the Best Scripture based movie

  28. Amine Amine on June 26, 2019 at 5:45 am

    I am.a muslim and i love The prince of Egypt it should be the best in your list

  29. Filip Jeglic on June 26, 2019 at 5:48 am

    Life of Brian shouldn’t be here LOL
    That’s basically a parody…it’s the opposite of what this list is.

  30. Neon Jay on June 26, 2019 at 5:51 am

    Blasphemy, find better videos these suck and are misinformation. Don’t trust MOJO

  31. Matas Kaunietis on June 26, 2019 at 5:55 am

    if you’re talking about movies inspired by the Bible, you should at least mention "The Lord of the Rings" or "The Chronicles of Narnia" but thats just my opinion. 🙂

  32. iisus Hristos Biruitor on June 26, 2019 at 5:55 am

    Jesus of Nazareth 1972

  33. DJ Pictures on June 26, 2019 at 5:57 am

    5:39 This is the reason why The Passion should have been released in IMAX.

  34. Tyshawn Daniels on June 26, 2019 at 6:00 am

    I don’t think Jesus would of had long hair if In the Bible he says that it is an disgrace for a man to have long hair and he isn’t a hypocrite

    Mockery

  39. Zachary Siple on June 26, 2019 at 6:02 am

    #10-my favorite Jesus biopic.
    #9- Good, but not great IMO.
    #8-Not as good as the 2000 version, again-that’s opinion.
    #7-MMM…9/10-good if you don’t treat it AS a Bible movie.
    #6-Very funny movie!
    #5-My first R Rated movie-I saw it when I was 14. I’ve seen it about 15 times now in about 5.5 years-I adore it!
    #4-A tie for my favorite movie-very uplifting and thought-provoking!
    #3-Along with it’s prequel-my favorite animated movie!
    #2-My favorite Best Picture winner and Charlton Heston movie!
    #1-Not my #1, but a masterpiece nonetheless! I actually prefer #3’s telling of the story, though.

    HM:
    Samson and D.-Very good, not 10 Commandments level.
    The Robe-not a favorite Bible movie as of now but very good!
    King of Kings-Liked it, not with the hype though-8/10.
    Have not seen the others.

    Stop lying to people

    Shrek Is the bible

  43. LuffyuzumakiPotter on June 26, 2019 at 6:06 am

    Not Noah is to bible what dragon ball evolution is to dragon ball manga. A total disregard of the source material.

  44. Zachary Siple on June 26, 2019 at 6:07 am

    11:39 Jonah: A Veggie Tales Movie is one! 🙂

  45. Captain Barbossa on June 26, 2019 at 6:07 am

    I’m probably one of the few minority who absolutely LOVES the Passion of the Christ. Such a beautiful film with a powerful message centered around the day love really won.

  46. sergio aguirre on June 26, 2019 at 6:09 am

    Prince of egypt is mah fav

  47. Richard The Imaginator on June 26, 2019 at 6:09 am

    My most favorite bible movies are The Ten Commandments (1956), the EPIC Ben-Hur (1959), and my most favorite childhood movie THE PRINCE OF EGYPT.

  48. Captain Barbossa on June 26, 2019 at 6:09 am

    Are you kidding me, the Passion of the Christ should always be number one. Phenomenal, just phenomenal.

  49. Richard Davis on June 26, 2019 at 6:12 am

    Top 3 picks: BEN HUR (1959) THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (1956) THE ROBE (1951)
