"THERE CAN BE MIRACLES WHEN YOU BELIEVE." If you're a fan of religious films, there's a big chance that you know these lyrics come from the 1998 animated film The Prince of Egypt. From Moses and Ramses to Mary and Jesus Christ, 93% of people can't name these religious movies from an image. Can you?
When it comes to the genre of religious films, the majority of them depict stories from the Bible. With over 2.2 million followers of Christianity and 13.9 million followers of Judaism, it's clear to see that the Bible's reach is far, and this is mirrored in the religious film genre.
Many of these films follow Old Testament people such as Moses and Noah. The New Testament films follow the life of Jesus Christ. Although they are following the same people, they differ in delivery. Steve Carell stars in the 2007 comedy Evan Almighty about Noah while Russell Crowe stars in the epic drama Noah that was released in 2014. Ted Neeley starred in the 1973 musical Jesus Christ Superstar while Jim Caviezel starred in the drama The Passion of the Christ. When it comes to all of these religious films, could you name them from an image?
Could you recognize an animated Moses splitting the Red Sea with his staff? Can you name the 2003 film where Morgan Freeman gives Jim Carrey the opportunity to "play God?"
Will you be praying your way to a perfect score? Let's find out!
