Maundy Thursday Vines

In the synoptic gospels, at the Words of Institution on Maundy Thursday, Jesus talks about not drinking of the fruit of the vine again until He drinks it new in the kingdom of God.

John doesn't record the Words of Institution. But he does record Jesus' words on Maundy Thursday: "I am the true vine; my Father is the vine-dresser. I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit, for without Me you can do nothing."

Do you suppose they're connected?
