Other Teachings at the Last Supper

Chapter 50

Jesus told people to love each other

After they finished eating, Jesus talked with His disciples. He said that people would know that they were His disciples if they loved one another as He had loved them. John 13:34–35

We can have the Holy Ghost

He said that if they loved Him, they would keep His commandments. He promised them the Holy Ghost, who would teach them all they needed to know. He said that the Holy Ghost would help them remember the things that He had taught them. John 14:15–18, 26

Jesus is the true vine

Jesus said that He was the true vine. His disciples were like branches of the vine. If they did not produce fruit, they would be cut off. If they stayed on the vine, they would be nourished by it and would produce good fruit. John 15:1–2

We can be branches of the true vine

Jesus promised His disciples that if they lived the gospel, they would be like branches of the good vine. He would make them strong. Their fruit, or their works, would be good. But if they did not follow Him, they would produce nothing. John 15:3–8

Jesus prayed for His disciples

Jesus Christ prayed for His disciples, that they would be one in doing Heavenly Father’s work. He was one with the Father because He did what His Father had sent Him to do. He prayed that His disciples would teach people to believe in Him and to know that Heavenly Father loves them. John 17:1–4, 6, 20–23
