MORETSI, L.. Tithing: An evaluation of the Biblical background. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.43, n.2, pp.397-412. ISSN 2305-0853.

Tithe was practised in the Old Testament, but the New Testament emphasises the attitude of the giver. Giving money is about relationships and goodwill. It is important that church members value their churches and commit themselves as constant givers. Tithing can be traced throughout the Old Testament to the New Testament (cf. Heb.). This article will begin with an introduction that offers the practical situation that compelled the institution of the tithe, followed by the Biblical background of tithing and an explanation of the goods or produce that was subject to the tithe. This will be followed by an investigation of the Old Testament perspective on tithing, including a consideration of the first fruits, the offering and the theological implications. Subsequent to this, the New Testament perspectives will receive attention. The NIV translation will be used as it is accepted as a good and reliable translation.
