House

Is it so?

John 14;2

Literally dwelling places, rooms, or even apartments (in modern terms).  All are in the large “Father’s house.”

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for John 14:2.

He built upon the rock

luke 6;48

The house represents a religious life; the rain represents divine judgement.  Only the one built on the foundation of obedience to God’s Word stands, which calls for repentance, rejection of salvation by works, and trust in God’s grace to save through His merciful provision.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Matthew 7:24-27.
