What Does the Bible Say About Tithing?
Jamey Escamilla • Feb 7, 2023
Does the Bible command or suggest Christians everywhere to tithe?
The tithing debate has been a hot topic within the church for thousands of years. People don’t seem to agree.
There are countless articles, videos, and teachings explaining and defending differing views on this subject, so figuring out what’s right can be confusing.
In this study, we won't simply take scripture and interpret it as to what we THINK it’s saying, or what it SOUNDS like it’s saying.
We also don’t want to come to this topic with an already made-up mind about tithing, and then try to find scriptures we can steer toward our belief.
The only way to get to the truth of tithing is to start with an open mind that wants to know the Biblical view of tithing for the New Covenant believer today.
Then, we should strive to get the correct meaning of each scripture we read. The only right interpretation of tithing is whatever interpretation the writers of the Bible have.
The goal is simply to find what the writers of those scriptures actually meant when they wrote them.
This study is a 10-part series with video. Let's dive right in!
