Only Two Witnesses?

“One witness shall not rise against a man concerning any iniquity or any sin that he commits; by the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established.” Deuteronomy 19:15

“Jesus answered and said to them, “Even if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from and where I am going.  You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one.  And yet if I do judge, My judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent Me.  It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true.  I am One who bears witness of Myself, and the Father who sent Me bears witness of Me.” John 8:14-18

Jesus established his authority to the Pharisees by two witnesses – himself and God. Why didn’t Jesus cite the Holy Spirit as a third witness? Did Jesus consider the Holy Spirit a person? Or is the Holy Spirit merely the spirit of God? We are all made of flesh and spirit.
