A "mansion" for everyone

A dwelling place is of vital interest to most of us. Few relish the thought of living without shelter, without the comfort and convenience of a central point for living. Any student of the Bible can find the clue to recognizing the spiritual nature of what we call "home."

When Christ Jesus began his ministry, traveling from town to town throughout Galilee and Judea, he had no permanent residence but stayed with his followers. He lived simply but lacked nothing.

Once he promised his disciples: "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." John 14:2; He knew the Father, and the Father knew him. Did Jesus live in the Father's house? He must have been certain about this point. He spoke knowingly about the "mansions."
