Learning the Law by Heart
31 The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. 32 It will not be like the covenant that I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt--a covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, says the LORD. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, "Know the LORD," for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more.

Continuing with the thoughts on how great it's going to be, God will make a new covenant. This covenant will be better than the one made on Mount Sinai, which the people broke. God will restore the direct relationship with the people and this time write the law on their hearts. This refers most directly to the return to and rebuilding of Jerusalem by the Israelite remnant after the Babylonian exile. Later it is referenced by Christianity in regard to Jesus' mission and echoed in Paul's letters when he suggests that the law has been superseded.
Did They or Didn't They?
Now among those who went up to worship at the festival were some Greeks. They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and said to him, "Sir, we wish to see Jesus." Philip went and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus.
Jesus answered them, "The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honor." [...]

Andrew knows to pass the request on to Jesus himself. Either because he knows that Jesus won't turn anyone away or, at least, that it is not the disciples' decision to make. The message that followed was a radical re-definition of what being messiah meant. It was not about a worldly kingdom, but a spiritual one.
