Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 14:2

_ _ In my Father’s house are many mansions — and so room for all, and a place for each.

_ _ if not, I would have told you — that is, I would tell you so at once; I would not deceive you.

_ _ I go to prepare a place for you — to obtain for you a right to be there, and to possess your “place.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 14:1-3.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

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.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 14:2

In my Father's house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], (a) I would have told you. I go to (b) prepare a place for you.

(a) That is, if it were not as I am telling you, that is, unless there was room enough not only for me, but also for you in my Father's house, I would not deceive you in this way with a vain hope, but I would have plainly told you so.

(b) This whole speech is an allegory, by which the Lord comforts his own, declaring to them his departure into heaven; and he departs not to reign there alone, but to go before and prepare a place for them.
