“In my Fathers house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would haue told you: I goe to prepare a place for you.”

14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions - Enough to receive both the holy angels, and your predecessors in the faith, and all that now believe, and a great multitude, which no man can number.
Joh 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions. By the "Father's house" is meant the heavenly abode. He is about to return there, from whence he had come. I go to prepare a place for you.

The departure of Jesus was needful to open an entrance to them and use.
