Common Knowledge

The first episode in season 3 is introducing the concept of common knowledge and establishing how it will guide this season.
This is the third time that I am coming to you. On the testimony of two or three witnesses every matter shall be confirmed.2 Corinthians 13:1 NASB
Common knowledge is[1][2]:
  • Anything you can find in 5 scholarly sources
  • Anything you can safely assume the reader/listener already knows
  • Not disputed

Bible verses about 2 or 3 witnesses:
  • Deuteronomy 17:6
  • Deuteronomy 19:15
  • Matthew 18:16
  • 2 Corinthians 13:1
  • 1 Timothy 5:19
  • Hebrews 10:28

Biblical examples of God repeating something 2 or 3 times:
  • Joseph interpreting dreams (Genesis 40)
  • Pharaoh has 2 dreams about the famine (Genesis 41)
  • 1 & 2 Chronicles contains much of the same information as 1 & 2 Kings
  • Daniel and Revelation have much cross over
  • The Gospels

What if this pattern exists across cultures?
And I have other sheep that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will listen to My voice; and they will become one flock, with one shepherd.John 10:16 NASB

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
