Jesus Movie Split

Happy birthday, Jesus! 'Tis the season to celebrate the King of Kings, so we come bearing our pick of pics—the 10 must-see Jesus films.

Ten lords-a-leaping, it was a holy mother of a challenge compiling this list. We could've chosen all the expected Messiah movies: The Greatest Story Ever Told, Jesus of Nazareth, The Passion of the Christ and countless others. Instead, we're mixing it up, combining literal interpretations (like The Nativity Story) with those that are satirical, allegorical, and even musical.

Ready to lift your spirit on Christmas day? Hallelujah! Open the pearly gates and enter our gallery of Jesus-Inspired movies.

Then grace us with your thoughts—tell us your faves or which ones we've sacrilegiously left off the list.
