The Hottest Jesuses in Pop Culture

I need some holy water to cool off.

Ewan McGregor is the latest actor to step into Jesus Christ’s shoes in the film Last Days in the Desert. McGregor’s performance is great, but who really cares about that? What really matters is that he is a hot AF Jesus. Seriously, McGregor is so sexy as the Son of God, you’ll need to douse yourself in holy water to cool off. Lord help us.

But McGregor isn’t the first Hollywood heavyweight to have us think impure thoughts about the Prince of Peace. Several baes have stepped into Jesus’ sandals, and our thirsts skyrocketed as a result. Here are the 10 sexiest JCs to ever grace–eh?!–the screen. Pray for your salvation after reading this.
