New Jerusalem is one of the names throughout the books of the Bible for a city modelled on the city of Jerusalem that is, or will be, the residence of the saints.  In the Book of Revelations it is: The Tabernacle of God; Holy City; City of God; Celestial City and City of God.  In other books it is: Zion; Jerusalem Above and Shining City on a Hill.  It is variously interpreted as a celestial city, a physical city or a spiritual dwelling place, while some Christians believe it refers to the Church.
