John 14:2 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "In my Father's house are many mansions," (en te oikia tou patros mou monai pollai eisin) "in my Father's residence (house) many abodes exist," in the upper temple of my Father, in heaven itself. Or there are many abiding places, in this continuing city, Heb 13:14. The picture is that of a Royal dwelling place that provides shelter and care both for the King and his sons.

2) "If it were not so, I would have told you." (ei de me eipon an humin) "Otherwise I would have told you," or if it were not true I would have advised you all, disclosed it to you, instead of telling you that you would follow me, to my house to live with me, after I am gone.

3) "I go to prepare a place for you." (hoti proseuomai hetoimasi topon humin) "Because I go away to prepare a place for you all," to make ready to welcome you all home when you come, Joh 14:16. As my spirit, and that Holy Spirit which the Father shall send you when I am gone, leads and prepares you to come to be with me, as a joint heir in my Father's estate, forever! Glorious thought! Divine assurance! 1Co 2:9; Rom 8:16-17; 2Ti 4:7-8. See also Heb 6:20; Heb 9:24, Rev 21:2.
