50+ Stunning Latter-day Saint Pictures of Christ

As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, much of our religious focus is on the life of the Savior. The Church's doctrine is one of hope, redemption, and growth that we learn from the scriptures and modern revelation. We learn that “men are that they might have joy” and that Christ, by way of His life and His teachings, has shown us the way to achieve that true joy.

Likewise, this is the focus of much of our art. Our LDS artists pour their heart and personal belief into scenes depicting Jesus’ miracles or paintings symbolizing His guidance and love. We have an expansive collection of portraits of Jesus that highlight His benevolent nature. Each one showcases a unique style and perspective that invites thoughtful reflection on Christ’s influence in our personal lives. 

It’s no wonder religious artwork, generally speaking, plays such an important role in our lives. It trims just about every chapel, often accompanies any given Sunday lesson, and adds inspiration to many homes. For this blog, we wanted to focus on Latter-day Saint pictures of Christ that we think are perfect for your home, for your church calling, or a special gift for your neighbors, favorite missionary, or loved ones.

Loaves and Fishes by Rose Datoc Dall

Reflecting on Creation by Eva Koleva Timothy

Jesus in a yellow robe sitting on a hill and looking out at a lush landscape.

Gethsemane by Adam Abram

Jesus collapsed on the ground in the Garden of Gethsemane. Light shines down on Him.

Calling of the Twelve Disciples in America by Jorge Cocco

Geometric painting of Jesus ordaining the twelve disciples from the Book of Mormon.

Gather Them In by Robert A Boyd

Hallowed Be Thy Name by Simon Dewey
