« John 14:15-21 | Main | Luke 24:44-53 »


The other place 'mone' is used (only twice in the NT) is John 14:23 - when it is the abidingness of Jesus and the Father in the one following Jesus... Not an after death experience.

Mone (Greek) is the word that is translated "swelling place" or "rooms". Origen stated that this probably means a resting place on the journey to God. This is based on the Greek meaning of mone which is "night stop" or "resting place". It is not until the Vulgate that the meaning transmorgrifies into "dwelling place". (all this from the Anchor Bible Commentary on John)
