John 14:3 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "And if I go and prepare a place for you," (kai ean poreutho kai hetoimaso topon humin) "And if I go and prepare a place for you all," or as surely as I go, I will not desert you, abandon you to find your own way to my Father's house, and the resting station for you in eternity.

2) "I will come again," (palin erchomai) "I come again," of my own will, choice, or accord. This is an assurance from Jesus Himself, certifying that as surely as He went away on a mission for His own, He would come in a special way to receive His own. That He went into heaven with outstretched hands blessing His own indicates that the same purpose exists as a priority of purpose in His return, Luk 24:50-53; Act 1:10-11.

3) "And receive you unto myself," (kai poreuomai humus pros emauton) "And I will receive you alongside and to myself," in an intimate way, as certainly as if it were already done. He departed for a little while that He might be with His own forever, 1Th 4:17; Joh 12:26; Joh 17:24.

4) "That where I am there ye maybe also." (hina hopou eimi ego kai humeis ete) "In order that where I exist you all may also be," be united, exist or reside forever. As also certified Act 1:10-11; Heb 10:36-37; 1Th 4:17; 2Co 5:8; Php_1:21.
