Double Witness

Sharing Options

“This brings us at last to the fifth aspect of Christian witness, which concerns the preacher . . . We may summarize the biblical view of Christian witness by saying that it is borne before the world by the Father to the Son through the Spirit and the Church . . . This double witness of the Spirit and the Church is a very interesting phenomenon. It is an example of the fact that valid witness must always be plural . . . Moreover, this principle holds not only in witnessing against somebody’s misdeeds, but also when witnessing to the truth” (John Stott, The Preacher’s Portrait, pp. 69-70).
