God Bless The Broken Road

Joseph: King of Dreams
One of the most critically acclaimed films upon its triumphant release, this inspiring musical adventure retells the classic story of a boy (voiced by Ben Affleck) with the extraordinary gift of seeing the future through his dreams. While based on the biblical Joseph, this is obviously a cartoon and is told in a way that appeals to younger audiences.

In this tale, the 7-year old Jesus, along with his parents Joseph and Mary, leave Egypt and return to Nazareth.

It’s not only one of the best Christian movies on Netflix but also one of the most thought provoking.
The Resurrection of Gavin Stone
This 2017 movie features Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’s Brett Dalton. He plays a former child actor who gets in trouble with the law. His sentence is to serve the community at a local church. He pretends to be a Christian so he can play Jesus in the church’s yearly Passion Play. However, he soon discovered his real faith in Jesus.
VeggieTales in the House
While not strictly not a movie, in fact, it isn’t a movie at all, but no list of Christian content on Netflix would be complete without VeggieTales! Join the adventures of Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber and their Veggie pals as they venture beyond the kitchen counter. Made for kids, but secretly enjoyed more by adults! This is a fun way to teach your children christian lessons in a fun and entertaining way.
This 2019 movie tells the story of a college athlete who looks like he might have a promising career as a pro baseball player.
