Other Teachings at the Last Supper

Love one another

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

Keep His commandments

He said 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 the Holy Ghost would help them remember the things 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 growing from the vine. If branches do not produce good fruit, they will be cut off. If a branch breaks off from the true vine, it cannot produce any fruit. But if branches stay firmly attached, they will be nourished. John 15:1–2

If we follow Jesus our fruit would be good

Jesus promised His Apostles 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 to His father

Finally, Jesus Christ prayed that His Apostles would be one in doing the work of Heavenly Father. He said that He was one with the Father because He did what His Father sent Him to do. He prayed that His disciples would teach people to believe in Him. John 17:1–4, 6, 20–23

They sang a hymn

Then Jesus and the Apostles sang a hymn and left the room. Matt. 26:30
