What Did Jesus Say Before He Left His Disciples?

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was a beloved teacher and spiritual leader who left a great impact on his disciples and followers. Before He left His disciples, Jesus imparted some valuable teachings and messages that continue to inspire and guide millions of people around the world today. In this article, we will explore what Jesus said before He left His disciples.

The Great Commission

In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus said to his disciples, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

This is known as The Great Commission. It is a call for Christians to spread the Gospel message throughout the world by making new disciples and teaching them to follow Jesus’ teachings.

The Promise of the Holy Spirit

In John 14:15-17, Jesus promised His disciples that He would send them another Helper or Advocate after He had gone back to heaven. This Helper would be none other than the Holy Spirit.

Jesus said: “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper (Advocate), to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth.”

The Holy Spirit is still present with us today as believers in Christ. He guides us in our daily lives, helps us understand God’s Word better and enables us to live out our faith.

Love One Another

In John 13:34-35 Jesus gave His disciples a new commandment – “Love one another as I have loved you.” This was a radical commandment that went beyond just loving your neighbor as yourself; it required loving others sacrificially as Christ did.

Jesus said: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another.”

The Promise of His Return

In John 14:1-3, Jesus comforted His disciples by telling them that He would return to take them to be with Him in heaven.

Jesus said: “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.

In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.”

This promise gives us hope and assurance that we will one day be with Christ in heaven.


In conclusion, Jesus’ final words to His disciples were powerful and profound. They contained messages of hope, comfort, guidance and love.

As Christians today, we can learn from these teachings and apply them in our lives as we seek to follow Christ’s example. May we continue to spread the Gospel message throughout the world and live out our faith as true disciples of Jesus Christ.
