"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God believe also in me. In my Father's house there are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you into myself; that where I am there is any be also, And another I go ye know, and the way he knows.
