The scripture references below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
Ecclesiastes 4:9, 12 (“Two are better than one” and “a cord of three strands” are phrases that resonate with the idea of two or three witnesses that we see in 2 Corinthians 13:1.)
2 Corinthians 13:1 (Here Paul is quoting Deuteronomy 19:15. This was a well-established principle for settling issues in ancient Israel.)
1 Corinthians 13:13 (Here’s an example of the Bible using a threefold cord to establish truth in our minds.)
If you are familiar with the Bible, or if you want to hear more from it, you may want to read one of my other blogs: A Bible Reader’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
