ongoing benefit

What would Jesus do that would be of ongoing benefit to his disciples? At the Last Supper he left them a covenant, a new testament, in his Body and Blood made possible by his death on the cross. After he rose from the dead he appeared to two of his disciples and he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. “And their eyes were opened.” What did Jesus’ disciples do? “They continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.”
