A lone pair from chlorine can havee resonance in the aromatic ring, and extra movement of electrons forms a much stronger bonds among them, which results in less reactivity. Resonance is the thing by which chlorobenzene is stabilized.
Whereas in methyl chloride this stability doesnot i.e., resonance doesenot exists, hence chlorine atom in chlorobenzene is less reactive as compared to methyl chloride.

In case of methyl chloride the chlorine (negatively charged) is directly attached with carbon (nucleus) and are positively charged so have strong forces of attraction while in case of benzyl chloride benzene show strong bonding with its carbon atoms and chlorine which attach on benzene ring easily removedremoved.
