Q. I’m enjoying your mp3 studies, but have a question. In John, the verse about Jesus leaving and preparing a place for us with his Father, who has many rooms… Isn’t he speaking to his deciples who are Jewish? Then if he is speaking to the Jews I’m confused because if I understood the studies corectly the Jews are going to be on Earth with God, and the Gentiles will be in heaven. Please help me see where I’m confused.
A. The passage you reference is John 14:1-3. You’ve answered your own question, and in the process demonstrated why it’s important to understand all of God’s word, not just some of it.
Since He was telling the Disciples that He was going to Heaven to prepare a place for them, and since the Bible clearly states that Israel will live on Earth during the Millennium, then the disciples must represent the Church, not Israel.
