When the oral tradition which G-d gave to Moses, was taught to the elders of each tribe, there were always two witnesses present, to make sure the oral tradition was give down without error, so why wasn't there two witnesses to hear the prophets words, when the prophets received their prophecy from G-d, so as to make sure the prophecy was written down without error

    Who say there were not? Also when they delivered the prophesy in public there were many more than two. – sabbahillel Mar 6 '16 at 17:03

    "the oral tradition which G-d gave to Moses, was taught to the elders of each tribe": citation needed. "there were always two witnesses present, to make sure the oral tradition was give down without error": citation needed. – msh210 Mar 6 '16 at 19:24
  • Not a bad question. Rambam emphasizes that Moshe's prophecy included all of the Jews at Sinai who then believed him. He similarly emphasizes that the Oral Law was by groups to other groups, not by individuals to other individuals. This leaves the question of the transmission of the prophets. – mevaqesh Mar 7 '16 at 2:40

If a navi is kovesh ne'vu'aso he is chaya misah, the question is how do we know he is being kovesh ne'vuaso?

The mephorshim explain that every navi heard every nevuah, just that only one was meant to transmit the message.

Therefore when the prophecy was transcribed other neviim would be able to verify its accuracy.

This would not apply to Moshe who had unique nevuah.
