Even non-Christian artists find great value in exploring the concept of new life, hope, and redemption.

On this joyful spring day when there is much celebration over the Easter miracle, it’s interesting to see how the theme of resurrection has found an outlet in the artwork of many different types of artists from all eras. Even painters who aren’t overtly Christian still find great value in exploring the concept of new life, redemption, and hope for a transformational spiritual experience. There are many devotional religious paintings, many of them truly magnificent, depicting the resurrected Christ. There are also other perspectives on the theme of resurrection that might make Easter even more meaningful for you as you ponder them.

Check out these inspiring images that will help you maintain your Easter joy all year long.
