- Youngs Literal Bible
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. If the separation was to be an eternal one, he would have forewarned them. Rather, he goes before to prepare a home for them where they can all be together. The departure of Jesus was needful to open an entrance to them and use.

I thought that this passage refers to all believers, no matter what faith you followed. Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Hindu,Judaism,etc.! If you believed in God, Yahweh, Jehovah....The creator of us all, no matter what name you place to our Lord. I once heard that He gave his name to Moses as "I am " when Moses asked while on the mount and God appeared as the burning bush.

THERE ARE MANNY ABODES IN MY FATHER 'S HOUSE AS OUR LORD SAYS ,HE WAS THE HOUSE ON THIS EARTH . MANNY ABODES ARE THE BELIEVERS. THE WAY WAS CROSS AND HIS COMING WAS IN RESURRECTION . SO WE THE BODY OF CHRIST IS THE PLACE WHERE GOD FINDS REST. THOSE WHO THINK OF MANSION OR MATERIAL HOUSE SHOULD THINK THAT WE HAVE GOD WHO CREATES BY HIS WORD SO CAN YOU THINK THAT LORD JESUS IS BUILDING ABODES FOR LAST 2000 YEARS.HE IS BUILDING HIS BODY MATT 16 18 , YET NOT COMPLETE. WE NEED TO PRAY THAT HIS BODY CHURCH SHOULD BE BUILD. THERE ARE MORE THAN 90000 DENOMINATIONS IN CHRISTIANITY AND SORRY TO SAY THAT EACH DENOMINATION THINKS HE IS BETTER AND PERFECT , THEY UNDERMINE OTHERS. THERE IS NO ONESS, NO HARMONY ,THERE IS ALWAYS CRITICISM WITH ONE ANOTHER. WE NEED TO PRAY THAT THERE MAY BE HARMONY WITH EVERY BELIEVER OF ANY RACE , COUNTRY , COLOR , LANGUAGE ETC. SO THAT LORD WILL COME SOON

I for one believe a lot of you are getting off wrong with the word of God, so you have to be careful in your interpreting the scripture. The word of God is so unique in that it explains what JESUS is talking about, also, God 's Holy Spirit can give the meaning of what John 14 2 means. I will not give you my opinion, about the word of God. I will say this was grace in the old testament or was just the law and the promise 's of God. You see God can just about do as He please, even when we do not understand how He does what He does. Shalom

If what you guys are interpreting as for the Jews and not the followers of Christ what Jesus is saying here why and I say this in love don 't you ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth to you. There can be no understanding of God 's word without the Holy Spirit. I think that a lot of you are trying to put God in a box and He is a "GREAT BIG GOD ". Jesus spoke many parables and the only way we can figure it out is to "Study His Word ". We in the flesh calls the churches the house of God but here Jesus said in my Father 's house are many mansions and if we were not going to be with him, why would He say I go to prepare a place for you and that He will come again and receive you unto Himself. So whether He brings the mansion to us or we get it in Heaven, I take joy in knowing that "ONE OF THEM BELONG TO ME ". For a description of the earthly city you are going to have to read revelation.

Jesus himself bieng 100 human and 100 God in flesh can not lie, and His promise of the heavenly places mansions is a reward of anyone who picks up His cross to follow him, jonh 14 2 is clear the house of God originates in heaven, the church is the body of Christ. Though it is reffered to the church in certain scriptures
Christian Uba's comment on 2014-06-29 14:53:57:
1 Timothy 3 15 clearly says that the church is the house of the Living GOD. Can anyone please show me a verse in the Bible that says that the FATHER 's house is in the heavens as a place?

As children of God we have a room set aside for us in the mansions that Jesus has prepared for us. Lets do his will while we are on the earth so that we can enter into his glory joyfully.
Olabode's comment on 2014-06-27 02:54:38:
Jesus came to this world to reveal the secret of heaven to us. He told us that, in heaven where God dwells, there are uncountable houses prepared for those that will make it. Remember! the moment someone surrendered all, the foundation of his mansion will be laid in heaven. We shall get there and claim our own mansion. God please help us!

My Father 's house is the temple in John 2, said, do not make my father 's house into a den of thieves, n destroy this temple, n in 3 days I will raise it up again, this he spoke of his body. In short the father 's house is the temple on the earth, his body on the earth as a dwelling place for God n men to mingle as one.

Vicki Your comment troubles me Jesus is talking to his disciples here There are no Christians here There were no Christians at all until after the day of Penticost there were only disciples or followers of Christ and there were more disciples than just the 12 apostles He also says that no one cometh unto the father except though me Many of the nation of Israel never accepted Christ therefore could not enter the Father s house I believe that He was absolutly talking about his Church here
Vicky's comment on 2013-10-13 08:35:05:
I am thankful to have a Pastor who has devoted the last 40 years of his life in studying and rightly dividing the word of God. In John14:2 it is important to rightly divide the word. Jesus is talking to his disciples here. There are no Christians here. He is talking about the kingdom of Heaven which is a literal visible place. God is telling the nation of Israel no matter what their going through He is preparing a place for them. It is important to understand who is being addressed in a passage and here the church is not being addressed. Hebrews11:16 also tells us he is preparing the city for Israel.This is not mansions for us, the church, to live in.

Carol's comment on 2013-05-04 19:10:08:
I am so thankful for my life, if it had not been for God and Jesus I would not be here, I hope one day to stand face to face with both and thank them in person for all I have had from both. I was wondering how in the world can anyone not believe just look around you and see the earth and the wonders of our Heavenly Father. God thank you for all.
Rosalyn's comment on 2013-04-19 14:03:33:
Today as well as every day I am so happy that God thought enough of us to send his only son to this sinful world. Thank God that Jesus cared enough to go back and prepare a place for us, no matter how we treated him then and now. I repent again lord.
Roger Garcia's comment on 2012-09-10 18:57:53:
He was a great Disciple and has gave testimony as Jesus told them. He has inspired manny Christian believers including my self. I read several of his verses to my wife while she was in a comma and she used to respond by touching my hand.
DAVID's comment on 2012-09-01 00:55:24:
IS JESUS SAYING HE IS GOING TO PREPARE A PLACE OTHER THAN HIS FATHER HOUSE...I OFTEN WONDER WHY IT IS SAID GOD AND JESUS ARE THE SAME YET JESUS IS ALWAYS SAYING HIS FATHER IS GREATER THAN HIM...(VERSE 7,10...THE TRUTH IS IN THE WORD...TO CHANGE THE WORD IS TO CHANGE THE TRUTH...)
