JESUS IN FILMS: A CENTURY OBSERVED

J Engelbrecht

Abstract


In 1995 the motion picture celebrates its century.  During this century many Jesus films have been made, and still there is no end in sight.  In this article the most important Jesus films of the past century are discussed, with some focus on the whence and the whither of these films.  Specific problems pertaining to these films are highlighted, as well as trends and characteristics.  It is argued that this type of films has undergone a process of development, but the final Jesus film appears to be an elusive dream.
