He Sends Forth 2

Mark 11:1,2

And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples, And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring [him].
Before Jesus came into Jerusalem riding on a colt, He sent a couple disciples to get it. It doesn't say "He sends forth 1 of His disciples." It says, "...He sends forth 2 of His disciples..."

Mark 14:13

And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him.
When they prepared for Jesus to eat the passover, He sent a couple disciples to make everything ready. Once again, it could have said, "He sends forth 1 of His disciples," but instead, it says, "He sends forth 2 of His disciples."

Matthew 18:16

But if he will not hear [thee, then] take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
Matthew 18:19,20
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Luke 10:1
After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.

One thing I believe is that there should be more than 1 supervisor and servant in our meetings.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
Two [are] better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him [that is] alone when he falleth; for [he hath] not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm [alone]? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
