25+ Hand of God Paintings by Professional Artists
Jesus' hands have a long-running symbolism in the Christian world. Whether in sermons, illustrations, or even multiple famous statues, the sacred scars in His outstretched hands hold powerful layers of meaning.
The scars remind us of what Jesus Christ suffered for us. He overcame not just the world as a whole, but our world as individuals. He has felt each one of our pains, fears, and disappointments. Because of that, he knows perfectly how to succor us. We may not always like the direction He gives, but we can have faith that, in the end, it is the best path toward healing.
Many pieces of art carry the common theme of Jesus’ Christ hands outstretched. Whether they are outstretched toward the viewer or outstretched on the cross, the message is the same: Jesus Christ loves us individually and deeply. He approaches us where we are at now. And then He gives us the added strength to lift ourselves onto the higher, holier ground.
But His invitation extends beyond ourselves. The Savior invites us to return the favor and offer strength to those around us. Jesus Christ Himself taught that: “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” (Matthew 25:40).
The artists at Altus Fine Art are driven and inspired by their love for and faith in Jesus Christ. Many create in hopes of sharing the peace and healing that they feel with others. Art, after all, has a way of communicating deep concepts and messages where words fail.
Enjoy these reverent, inspiring paintings illustrating the loving Hand of God.
Up-Close Pictures of Jesus Hands
One subject, so many unique angles. We love the variety of messages that each of these paintings and photos brings. To those who have seen and felt the Master’s merciful hands at work in their lives, it is a very personal experience. Our artists have done a painstaking job at capturing the miraculous experience, illustrating that whatever Jesus Christ touches grows.
Power of the Hand of God Paintings
The scriptures are full of examples of God’s power. The creation story alone is a mind-boggling account of how uncontrolled chaos was transformed into something mysteriously stunning. At Jesus’ hands, many received their sight. Others were healed of illnesses or handicaps they had suffered for years of their lives. And still, Lazurus was raised from the grasp of death.
While we may not always feel like our prayers are answered, or perhaps we cannot shake the feeling that we were robbed of a miracle, it is important to remember: God’s timeline is so much wider and all-encompassing than our immediate view. In the end, as we read in Revelations: “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things anew” (Revelations 21:4-5).

Jesus’ Hand Reaching Into the Water to Rescue
Regardless of the storms we face, regardless of whether we lose our focus and begin to sink, Jesus is there, reaching to catch us. Of course, He never forces our decision in reaching back for His help. But when we extend faith even the size of a mustard seed, we will find that His promises are sure. We will witness the hand of God in our own lives.
