Beautiful Christian artwork elevates your mind to the spiritual. The evolution of Christian art has been fascinating. Early art featured mosaics, sculptures, and dramatic paintings. But modern Christian inspired art uses a more relatable approach of symbolic paintings and scripture-based print.

Check out these beautiful modern Christian paintings and prints.

Mount Calvary

This is an artistic depiction of Mount Calvary. Mount Calvary (Latin: “bald head” or “skull”) is the site of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

Also called Golgotha (Aramaic: “skull”) the hill is so named for being in the shape of a skull.

The site of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice for mankind is referred to in 4 scriptures in the Bible:

  • Matthew 27:33- And when they came to a place called Golgotha, which means Place of a Skull
  • Mark 15:22- Then they brought Him to the place Golgotha, which is translated, Place of a Skull
  • Luke 23:33- When they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left
  • John 19:17- Carrying his cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha)

For God So Loved The World

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life- John 3:16. This wall art print is a reminder of God’s love for his children, for the Bible says that this love was so great that he let his only son die for mankind.

It is a comforting feeling to be reminded that you’re deeply loved by your Heavenly Father.

The Virgin Mary

The story of the Virgin Mary is one of the most well-known stories in the entire world. It is the story of a common girl chosen by God to bear the child that will save all of mankind from original sin.

Art depictions of The Mother of God inspire young Christian women especially, to aspire to be women of virtue who emulate the woman known throughout history as the woman blessed among women.

He Will Cover You With His Feathers

Psalm 91:4- He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings, you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

This print artwork is a reminder that when you are a Christian you are under the protection of your Heavenly Father. The Lord is your refuge and strength so you need not worry yourself over the dangers of the World.

This piece conjures the imagery of a fierce mother protecting her chicks from harm. It invokes a feeling of warmth and comfort.

LAMB OF GOD

The Lamb of God is another name for Jesus Christ of Nazareth. John the Baptist was the first person to refer to Jesus as such when he said in John 1:16- Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

In the Old Testament lamb is used interchangeably with sacrifice, so when a person sinned they took a lamb to the temple and slaughtered it in sacrifice. Like the story of the Israelites putting lamb’s blood on their doorposts to elude the Angel of Death.

In this art depiction, the lamb is under the cross, symbolizing the death of The Lamb of God by crucifixion on the cross.

Love

The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 13:13 that- And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Jesus Christ through his words and deeds preached love above all else. The Christian artists over at christianwalls.com explain how one of the core themes of Christianity is love for not just your neighbors, but also your enemies.

His parable of The Good Samaritan, about a man who went out of his way to help another man beaten and left for dead on the side of the road when all others before him passed by, has been shared as a great story of kindness all over the World.

This print artwork incorporates the description of love according to Scripture in its design. It is a guiding reminder of always displaying love, through deeds and words, in the likeness of Christ Jesus.

Art has to invoke emotions that affect us in such a way as to improve the quality of our lives. These art pieces and prints do just that by elevating the mind to the spiritual.
