Movies with Christian themes are wholesome family entertainment. From dramas to fantasy films, these are the best Christian themed movies you can watch this Holy Week.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005)

Four kids travel through a wardrobe to the land of Narnia and learn of their destiny to free it with the guidance of a mystical lion. Unbeknownst to some people, the Narnia stories parallel those of stories found in the bible. You can find more Christian allegories in the rest of the series. For example, the lion in Narnia is revealed to be the King of Kings and the son of an omnipotent deity; is betrayed by his disciples and someone called Jadis; and is publicly whipped and tortured in the street before resurrecting himself several days later!

Jerusalem Countdown (2011)

If you want suspence and action this Holy Week, you can watch Jerusalem Countdown. When nuclear weapons are smuggled into America, an FBI agent is faced with an impossible task – to find them before they are detonated. The clock is ticking and the only people who can help are a washed up arms dealer,a converted Israeli Mossad Agent and a by- the-book CIA Deputy Director.

Noah (2014)

We all know the story of Noah, the man chosen by the world's creator to undertake a momentous mission before an apocalyptic flood cleanses the world. Darren Aronofsky's take on the Noah tale is interesting , suspenceful, and respectful. It’s a fun and thrilling movie to watch this Holy Week.
