"Perhaps it is not a post-trib scripture after all"


I know that some use:

John 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

to teach a post-tribulational blessed hope, but doesn't the following, nine lines later:

John 17:24 ∂ Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

agree with:

John 14:1 ∂ Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
 2 In my Fatherís house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

which look more like a pre-tribulational blessed hope?
