15+ Remarkable Jesus as a Child Images
The Bible gives us few details about Jesus Christ’s life as a child. We know much more about His birth and His adult ministry than His growing up years. That is why we are grateful for our artists. They have taken the key components of Jesus’ life and teachings and explored the uncharted territory.
Enjoy these unique Jesus as a child images. Additionally, we’ve included some pictures of baby Jesus that are not necessarily associated with the nativity scene. Find additional insight into what it might have been like to know the Savior of the world as a child.
Jesus as a Child Images
Rose Datoc Dall is one of our most prolific artists in this department. She has a gift for reading in between the lines and drawing out moments that are rarely considered when studying the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. For example, she has painted multiple scenes with Jesus as a child and his relationship with Joseph the carpenter as well as the closeness He must have had with His mother.
We also have others like Mike Moyers, Simon Dewey, and Robert Barrett. These three artists explore many other possible scenes from the Saviour’s childhood. For example, Jesus as a child visiting with the wise men, learning from His mortal parents, and increasing His knowledge of the scriptures. We hope you find inspiration and insight in the story told in these Jesus as a child images.
Baby Jesus Images
As mentioned previously, our artists have also explored different ways of painting baby Jesus pictures. They have applied their manifold talents in illustrating various types of scenes from the Christ child with Joseph and Mary to the blessing He received from Simeon the prophet.
Rose has even completed multiple scenes depicting Mary and Joseph’s flight toward Egypt after they were warned of King Herod’s paranoid and cruel command to kill scores of male infants. Her illustrations capture the worry the young parents must have felt, but she maintains a theme of light that would seem to make hope the larger focus.
Justine Peterson and Simon Dewey do a masterful job at showing us a new view of Joseph as Jesus’ earthly father and guardian. Justine illuminates some of the joy and stability this “just man” provided to Mary and her sacred child (Matthew 1:19). Simon captures a tender moment when Joseph, perhaps keeping watch while Mary slept, holds the infant Christ in His strong arms with love and awe.
