Jesus is also depicted preparing a place in Heaven for his believers. Jesus is quoted in John 14:2, "In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you."

The Bible also speaks of Jesus' existence before his birth on earth. Referring to Jesus as the "Word," John 1:1-4 states, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life." Some believe this refers to Jesus existing with God in Heaven before his life on earth.
