Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary Definition of Truth: Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.
EVERY MATTER IS ESTABLISHED BY TWO OR THREE WITNESSES
Moses stated in the law that two or more witnesses are required to establish a matter. Jesus fulfilled this prophecy when He stated that He had a second witness to all He did in the Father. Paul echoed this truth when writing the Corinthians. Most of the major events in the Bible have a second witness to them whether they are from the past or events in the future.
TESTIMONY OF TWO OR MORE WITNESSES
Deu 19:15 One witness is not enough to convict anyone accused of any crime or offense they may have committed. A matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.
THE VALIDITY OF JESUS’ TESTIMONY

Jhn 8:16 But if I do judge, my decisions are true, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me.
Jhn 8:17 In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two witnesses is true.
Jhn 8:18 I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father, who sent me.”
PAUL’S CONCERN FOR THE CORINTHIANS
