2023 marks the first time that our Come, Follow Me lessons are revisiting a book of scripture, and we are lucky enough to be diving back into the New Testament.

Since many of the stories, parables, and teachings found in the New Testament are familiar—especially those found in the first four Gospels—we might run the risk of being casual or complacent in our personal study. But with this year’s study material being so well-known, it seems as though the Church has made a concerted effort to include imagery that both inspires and invites deeper contemplation on many of the lesson pages.

Both the 2023 Come, Follow Me study manual and journal edition feature huge, beautiful art pieces on their covers, and the imagery that accompanies each week’s study material is no less inspiring.

Here are 14 of our favorite paintings featured within the pages of this year’s Come, Follow Me manual.
