THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN - Chapter 8 - Verse 17

Verse 17. In your law. De 17:6; 19:15. Comp. Mt 18:16. This related to cases in which the life of an individual was involved. Jesus says that if, in such a case, the testimony of two men were sufficient to establish a fact, his own testimony and that of his Father ought to be esteemed ample evidence in the case of religious doctrine.

Two men.. If two men could confirm a case, the evidence of Jesus and of God ought not to be deemed insufficient.

Is true. In Deuteronomy, "established." This means the same thing. It is confirmed; is worthy of belief.
