    Jesus has shined many times on the silver screen, with depictions ranging from sacred to silly to scandalous. Oscar season is a great time to re-visit some of the most famous movies about Jesus and ask the question: which movie has the authoritative Jesus?

    Is it "The Passion of The Christ," "Jesus Christ Superstar," "The Last Temptation of Christ?" or one of 13 other nominees for Best Jesus In Movies? HuffPost Religion is announcing a four-round bracket challenge to determine just that! Cast your votes for each bracket and we will announce the winner on Feb. 20th.

    What do you like about your favorite Jesus movies of the 16 below? Be sure to let us know why in the comments. If your favorite Jesus movie did not make the bracket, tweet to @HuffPostRelig with the hashtag #bestjesusmovie. At the end of the challenge, we will highlight one people's choice movie.

    Voting for Round 1 starts now, and closes on the 8th of Feb. at 5 PM EST. Click here to cast your votes now! Come back on the 9th of Feb. for a second round of voting.

    Oh, I see. I was desperately trying to think of what 'moves' Jesus had. I was going to vote for moonwalking.

    Life of Brian was most definitely the best "Jesus" movie.

    I've always been a sucker for Monty Python, though.

    Definitely the best movie mentioned on the chart. Great movie. But wasnt about Jesus, he only made a cameo appearance from afar!

    It has to be 'Life of Brian'! The history presented is, pretty much, dead on. Palestine was in the grip of 'Messiah Mania' at that time. The movie also presents a true portrayal of what has happened to Jesus' teachings (ref. 'Blessed are the Cheesemakers' shown earlier).
