"Ye are my witnesses"

Throughout the Scriptures, and indeed throughout the history of civilization, a good deal of importance has been placed on the role of the witness. Many systems of law rest on the integrity of witnesses. Legal documents are often required to be witnessed. In both Old and the New Testaments the word witness is key to significant statements and demands. The Ten Commandments proclaim, "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour." Ex. 20:16.

A witness is one who attests to a fact or an event. A witness is one who gives evidence, one who has personal knowledge of something. A witness is also one who testifies in a cause or before a judicial tribunal. But there is an assurance is an assurance in the Bible that points to a far deeper and more meaningful significance of witnessing and giving evidence. "Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God." Isa. 43:12.
