DELIVER US TO THE PROMISED LAND! If you're a reader of the Bible, you can probably pinpoint this exact passage. If you're a fan of biblical films, you would know that this comes from The Prince of Egypt. With all the biblical films, from live-action to animated, 93% of people can't identify them from an image. Can you?
The Bible is one of the most-followed sacred texts around the world. With 2.2 billion followers of Christianity and 13.9 million who follow Judaism, the stories and teachings of the Bible have reached over a quarter of the world's population. While many of these stories are shared through services, they have also come to life through film. Could you match the film to the proper image?
Many films follow the history of the Old Testament. The 1956 film The Ten Commandments and the animated 1998 The Prince of Egypt follow the story of Moses. There are others dedicated to Joseph, David, Esther and Jonah. While these are depicting the first half of the Bible, there are the other biblical films that are dedicated to Jesus' life in the New Testament.
The 2006 film The Nativity Story follows Mary and Joseph up until the birth of Jesus. One of the most popular biblical films is Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ which was released in 2004. The film begins with Jesus' prayers in Gethsemane before his leading to his crucifixion and ends with his resurrection.
These are some of the most popular biblical films to hit the screen. Can you recognize all of them? Could you pick out an animated Moses? Could you recognize The Passion of the Christ's Jim Caviezel? There's only one way to find out!
Say your prayers and let's see if you're acing this quiz!
