The word "home" conveys to many the thought of a place of refuge and rest. Men are continually finding peace and satisfaction in their concept of home. Magnificent structures have been built and abandoned because they have failed in their promise of happiness and peace; because without the spiritual understanding of what home really is, no merely material structure, be it ever so imposing and ornate, can bring joy to its possessor.

Although nothing is told us in the Scriptures of Jesus' home, yet it is not possible to believe that his concept of it was unsatisfying; on the contrary, his vision was so spiritual and perfect that he must have experienced comfort in any surroundings. His place of teaching was often the hillside or the seashore; he retired to a mountain as a place of refuge and prayer to spiritualize thought; and we are told that he lay down and slept on a storm-tossed boat at sea. He prepared breakfast for his disciples on the shore of the sea; but when it was necessary to have a quiet place to eat the passover with his disciples, the upper room was found, furnished and ready for this purpose. Jesus undoubtedly possessed the true spiritual concept of home; therefore, it must have been everywhere manifested to him.
