This week we celebrate both the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus as well as Passover. I thought I might suggest some inspirational movies for you to consider this week.
These are in no order whatsoever. This isn't a "best of" list or anything like that. Some are classics though most are of a more recent vintage. Some are historical while others are contemporary. The tones of these movies range from innocent (Jonah-A VeggieTales Movie) to graphic (The Passion of the Christ).
Such a list is only the tip of the iceberg. Looking at the list might even remind you of a totally different title you might not otherwise have thought of. Hopefully, you'll find one title in this list for your family that best fits the holiday.
