JERUSALEM, NEW — the holy city described by John in Revelation 21–22; God’s perfect and eternal order of the future. This New Jerusalem is not built by human hands; it is a heavenly city—one built and provided by God Himself (Rev. 21:2).
The New Jerusalem and the new Garden of Eden (symbols of righteousness, peace, and contentment) are the dwelling place of God, Christ, and the church. John saw no temple in the New Jerusalem, “for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple” (Rev. 21:22).
