5+ Must-See Easter Movies on Netflix

We love the Easter holiday festival celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. Let these Easter Movies on Netflix inspire you to get into the holiday spirit.

Easter Sunday or Resurrection Sunday is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD.

It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent (or Great Lent), a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. (Source)

Some people also consider these Good Friday movies on Netflix, which include everything from drama, kids cartoons, action-adventure, historical events to true stories. These are great selections to add to your Netflix list.

People Also Ask:

Does Jesus have a brother?

Mark 6:3 names James, Joses, Judas (conventionally known in English as Jude), and Simon as the brothers of Jesus, and Matthew 13:55, which probably used Mark as its source, gives the same names in a different order, James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas.

Here are some of them:
