The Pattern of Two Witnesses

“One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.

Deuteronomy 19:15

The prophet Gad and the angel were given by God to King David as two witnesses pointing to the ground he should purchase as the place for sacrifice. This is part of a biblical pattern that was confirmed by God’s command in the law of Moses requiring two witnesses. Mount Moriah was the place where God led Abraham and Isaac one thousand years before David would see the place marked by Gad the Seer and the angel. Abraham had been “looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God” (Hebrews 11:10). Two witnesses—the prophet Gad and the angel—marked the place for David to purchase where the Temple was to be built by Solomon. As David looked at the threshing floor marked by Gad and the angel, he was looking at the foundations that God had chosen, had made in creation, and now marked.
