These Easter movies on Netflix are great to watch during Easter weekend or any time of year. These Netflix titles feature stories about Jesus, Bible, biblical characters, miracles, and everyday people.
Easter 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)
