Rev 1:5 and from Jesus Christ who is the faithful witness,... If Jesus Christ is one of the witnesses of Rev 11:3, who is the other one?

Rev 11:3 I will give power to my two witnesses,...

Update:

Can accusers and witnesses be the same thing?

Do accusers take the witness stand?

Is Satan the/an accuser?

     Of all God’s creatures, the firstborn Son could give the most conclusive answer to that charge. In addition, Jesus provided the finest evidence supporting his Father’s side in the greater issue of the rightfulness of Jehovah’s universal sovereignty.

    If we were to follow your reasoning

    then

    of the two witnesses mentioned in Rev 11

    the one not Jesus would have to be an UNfaithful witness.

    However

    Rev 11 seems to describe both witnesses as being faithful

    (at least in the task described there)

    and so

    neither of them is Jesus.

    Rev 1 is describing Jesus as "the faithful witness"

    but does not tell us: "Of what?"

    The author presumes that Christians would know the answer to that.

    Neither of the two witnesses of Rev 11 are Jesus.

    YESHUA IS NOT ONE OF THE WITNESSES. THE TWO WITNESSES DO THINGS THAT MOSES AND ELIJAH DID IN THE OT SO THEY COULD BE THE WITNESSES.

    Jesus is not one of the witnesses of Rev 11:3.

    They are actually two groups of witnesses, the OT prophets, and the NT saints and martyrs.

    In that sense, the two testaments of the Bible are those two witnesses of God.

    Different set of events. Different witnesses. Many speculate that these will be Moses and Elijah, who were also present beside Jesus, at the Transfiguration.

    The Book of Revelation makes much more sense if you stop applying it in a modern sense.

    Enoch is the first witness. Elijah is the other witness. They were the only two in the Bible to be taken to heaven without first having to die. They’re in heaven waiting until the last days.
