One of our viewers wants to know was tithing just for Israel?
The answer is yes. Here’s why.
Tithing was part of the Old Covenant that was established between God and ancient Israel.
Exodus 19: 5-8
5 Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, 6 you[a] will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites.”
7 So Moses went back and summoned the elders of the people and set before them all the words the Lord had commanded him to speak. 8 The people all responded together, “We will do everything the Lord has said.” So Moses brought their answer back to the Lord.
A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the Lord; it is holy to the Lord.
Under the old Covenant tithing was one of 613 commands ancient Israel had to keep in order to receive God’s blessings. By the same token, if they broke any of the commands they would be punished.
The Old Covenant was replaced by the New Covenant, and tithing was not carried over into this New Covenant.
Jeremiah 31: 31-33 (The New Covenant foreshadowed with ancient Israel)
“The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel
and with the people of Judah. 32 It will not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to[a] them,[b]” declares the Lord. 33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel
after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
Romans 6: 23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in[a] Christ Jesus our Lord.
The tithing system involved sacrifices and rituals ancient Israel had to perform in order to please God and to remain in his good graces. Once the New Covenant was established through Jesus Christ, the tithing system was no longer necessary.
Was tithing just for Israel?
God required ancient Israel to pay tithes as part of the Old Covenant. Once the New Covenant was established through Jesus Christ, the ritual and sacrificial system of tithing was no longer necessary. Therefore, tithing is not required of New Testament Christians.
