“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God       ; believe also in me.    My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?    And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.    You know the way to the place where I am going.”    Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”    Jesus answered,  “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.    If you really know me, you will know    my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”   

John 14:1-7

1.) What place is Jesus talking about going? What is He preparing for us there?

2.) What does Jesus say to Thomas’ question towards the end of this passage?

3.) What is the hope given in this passage? What do we have to look forward to?
