Netflix has been around since 1998 and only grows more popular by the day. A recent price increase didn’t even deter the millions of people from their streaming services that now includes a download feature for viewing offline.
However, a great many of these viewers have expressed a desire to see more faith-based and Bible-based programming, and Netflix certainly does not intend to let their audience down. In a world filled with movies and television that seem to revolve around a sinful scenario, the Christian programming is a much needed change that many people are happy to change over to. Here are some of the inspirational, Bible-based listings that Netflix offers.
Left Behind is a series of movies that are based on the books of the same name, written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, depicting what happens after the Rapture and the time just prior to the Battle of Armageddon.
Son of God was shot in the Holy Land and came out in 2014, featuring Dioga Morgado as Jesus and Roma Downey as Mary. The movie recounts the life, death and resurrection of Christ and the stories, which can be found in the four gospels of the Bible: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
The Robe has Richard Burton starring in the leading role of this 1953 movie. This movie depicts the problems that face the Roman tribune who happens to be in charge of the execution of Christ. The same man later accepts Christ, is saved and then later executed for his faith.
