Behind closed doors, Jesus briefed His apostles. They would be the leaders of Christ’s new church, and they needed to know how to do it. Obviously, as it was Jesus’ church, they must relate together in the same way that He had treated them. Love was the key component of His character and was expressed in everything He did. So, Jesus commanded the eleven men (Judas had now left the team so that he could betray Jesus) to love each other. If they could love each other the remarkable way Jesus loved them, their lifestyle would be the greatest advertisement of their faith.
