Agreement is a theme that carries through the Bible. Here are a few examples of where agreement is mentioned in the Bible:
2 Corinthians 13:1 says, “This is the third time I am coming to visit you (and as the Scriptures say, “The facts of every case must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses)”.
Matthew 18:19 says, ”I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you”.
Matthew 18:20 says, For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them”.
Deuteronomy 19:15 says, “You must not convict anyone of a crime on the testimony of only one witness. The facts of the case must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.
Deuteronomy 17:6 says, “But never put a person to death on the testimony of only one witness. There must always be two or three witnesses”.
What I find amazing is that those verses relate to us, humans, people, creations. If two of us agree on a certain thing there is power released through that. A testimony from the mouth of two witnesses is rendered to be an accurate depiction of the events.
