Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 14:3

_ _ I will come again and receive you unto myselfstrictly, at His Personal appearing; but in a secondary and comforting sense, to each individually. Mark again the claim made: — to come again to receive His people to Himself, that where He is there they may be also. He thinks it ought to be enough to be assured that they shall be where He is and in His keeping.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 14:3

(2) And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will (c) come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.

(2) Christ did not go away from us with the intent of forsaking us, but rather that he might eventually take us up with him into heaven.

(c) These words are to be understood as being said to the whole Church, and therefore the angels said to the disciples when they were astonished, "Why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This Jesus will so come as you saw him go up", (Acts 1:11). And in all places of the Scripture the full comfort of the Church is considered to be that day when God will be all in all, and is therefore called the day of redemption.
