Dramatic portrayals of Jesus Christ

Various authors and filmmakers have created dramatic portrayals of Jesus Christ and his life.

A number of storytellers have wanted to portray an accurate depiction of what his life is believed to have been like, while others have used the persona of Jesus Christ as a narrative device to make a literary point and develop a story's theme. Because of the devotion of many people to the idea of Jesus Christ, portrayals of Christ in works of fiction have been, almost without exception, fraught with controversy. Film portrayals of Jesus have, in particular, attracted protests and criticism. Filmmakers and theater managers have even received death threats in the wake of some of the more controversial movies about Christ.
