6 John 14:1-6 (ESV) 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.”

7 John 14:1-6 (ESV) 5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

12 John 13:33-38 (ESV) 33 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. You will seek me, and just as I said to the Jews, so now I also say to you, ‘Where I am going you cannot come.’

13 John 13:33-38 (ESV) 34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.

14 John 13:33-38 (ESV) 35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

15 John 13:33-38 (ESV) 36 Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, where are you going?” Jesus answered him, “Where I am going you cannot follow me now, but you will follow afterward.”

16 John 13:33-38 (ESV) 37 Peter said to him, “Lord, why can I not follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.”

17 John 13:33-38 (ESV) 38 Jesus answered, “Will you lay down your life for me? Truly, truly, I say to you, the rooster will not crow till you have denied me three times.

18 John 16:33 (ESV) 33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

24 John 14:2-3 (ESV) 2 In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?

25 John 14:2-3 (ESV) 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.

26 Hebrews 11:13-16 (ESV) 13 These all died in faith, not having received the things promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth.

27 Hebrews 11:13-16 (ESV) 14 For people who speak thus make it clear that they are seeking a homeland.

28 Hebrews 11:13-16 (ESV) 15 If they had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out, they would have had opportunity to return.

29 Hebrews 11:13-16 (ESV) 16 But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city.

30 Hebrews 13:11-14 (ESV) 11 For the bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the holy places by the high priest as a sacrifice for sin are burned outside the camp.

31 Hebrews 13:11-14 (ESV) 12 So Jesus also suffered outside the gate in order to sanctify the people through his own blood. 13 Therefore let us go to him outside the camp and bear the reproach he endured.

32 Hebrews 13:11-14 (ESV) 14 For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come.

33 Revelation 3:12 (ESV) 12 The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.

34 Revelation 21:1-7 (ESV) 1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.

35 Revelation 21:1-7 (ESV) 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

36 Revelation 21:1-7 (ESV) 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.

37 Revelation 21:1-7 (ESV) 4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

38 Revelation 21:1-7 (ESV) 5 And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

39 Revelation 21:1-7 (ESV) 6 And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment.

40 Revelation 21:1-7 (ESV) 7 The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.

41 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 9 Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.”

42 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God,

43 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 11 having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.

44 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 12 It had a great, high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and on the gates the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were inscribed—

45 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 13 on the east three gates, on the north three gates, on the south three gates, and on the west three gates.

46 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

47 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 15 And the one who spoke with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city and its gates and walls.

48 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 16 The city lies foursquare, its length the same as its width. And he measured the city with his rod, 12,000 stadia. Its length and width and height are equal.

49 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 17 He also measured its wall, 144 cubits by human measurement, which is also an angel's measurement.

50 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 18 The wall was built of jasper, while the city was pure gold, like clear glass.

51 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every kind of jewel. The first was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald,

52 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 20 the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst.

53 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made of a single pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.

54 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 22 And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb.

55 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 23 And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb.

56 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 24 By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it,

57 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 25 and its gates will never be shut by day— and there will be no night there.

58 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 26 They will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations.

59 Revelation 21:9-27 (ESV) 27 But nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those who are written in the Lamb's book of life.
