(DISCLAIMER: This is not a thread for debating the merits of organized religion, or to insult anyone's personal beliefs. Also, the franchise will likely never, ever do this for obvious reasons, so this is purely speculative.)
Standard procedure in Doctor Who has been if it's an god or magic event, it's an alien or other dimensional being (Sutkeh, Azal, Cronos, Zeus etc.). However, these are all from dead religions or really old myths - what if we brought this discussion more within active faiths? In the Whoniverse, how could 'miracles' like Moses parting the Red Sea, the marvels of Jesus, the visions of Buddha or any other famed story you'd care to name, work? Could alien tech be at play (is Moses' staff some lost piece of Time Lord tech, for instance?) and so they did happen, or simply stories humans invent?
With Jesus he could be be a Timelord perhaps even the Doctor themselves ( either an incarnation we know or a Timeless Doctor ) The miracles could be explained with Timelord science and the part where Jesus comes back from the dead could easily be explained as regeneration. Not sure how to explain Jesus’s birth, but I am sure that could be explained with some sort of timey wimey scientific explanation.
