"If It Were Not So...": Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke with His disciples just days before His crucifixion. "He said to them, 'Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in Me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you' (John 14:1-2).
"In reading this familiar passage, I have long noticed that tender expression, 'if it were not so, I would have told you.' Why these words? Why did Christ say such a thing to His disciples?"
