Many scholars call this section of Scripture Jesus’ “farewell discourse”… in other words his “goodbye speech”
In this section of Scripture we find Jesus surrounded by his disciples as they share what is commonly known as the “Last Supper”. Jesus is about about to depart from this world, and go back to where he has existed for eternity before coming to earth… heaven
So as he prepares to leave, while they are all sitting around this table, Jesus pours into his disciples one final time and gives them some final commands and promises. And we, as his disciples 2000 years later, also need to hear these and obey them.
My desire through this, is that as we go through these final sayings of Jesus, we might be reminded of how Christ calls us to live as his disciples and that we might be FULLY obedient.
