The New Heaven and Earth

“And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” ” Revelation 21: 2-4 NASB

This is a great passage; one that I am not too familiar with, actually. However, the imagery and poetic speech are so captivating and descriptive; they paint a very eloquent and vivid picture of Christ's return. Although, this passage remains a mystery to me. 

This isn't a passage to read without pondering or digging in deeper. So what do you think the imagery and analogies are referring to? What have you studied or learned from this passage?
