Jesus called a preist for ever after the order (or type of..)Melchesedek o.k. Now, Jesus spoke of His close relationship to John the baptist, spoke to Moses and Elijah on the mount of transfiguration and spoke of many from O.T.....the strange thing and a big clue to the spiritually hungry who are able to digest meat...He never mentions Melchesedek...WHY?????

Tithing is often misunderstood and mis-taught, a few points:

1. Even though the Temple tax was required to be paid with money, it was forbidden to pay the tithe with money.

The tithe was 10% of the amount of lifestock and produce stores calculated periodically - not 10% of every seed, but 10% of the increase in amount of seed you had 3 years ago.

The tithe only applied to farmers in the Promised Land

The tithe was not given to the Temple, the priests cooked it, kept a portion of the tithe and returned the rest to the tither who fed it to his family and strangers - essentially an early welfare program.

The Bible is not specific on this point, but Jesus was without sin of any kind. If he had ignored the commandment to tithe then he would have sinned under the law of God. Note that the law of God and man interpertation and additions are different, but Jesus did pay the temple tax.

Did Jesus tithe?
When I read this, this is what came to mind.

Mar 12:41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
Mar 12:42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
Mar 12:43 And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
Mar 12:44 For all they did cast in of their abundance, but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.

JESUS WAS MELCHIZEDEK! So how could he worship and pay tithes to Himself.


"Doesn't your teacher pay the didrachma?" He said, "Yes."
When he came into the house, Jesus said, "What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth receive toll or tribute? From their children, or from strangers?"
Peter said to him, "From strangers."
Jesus said to him, "Therefore the children are exempt. But, lest we cause them to stumble, go to the sea, cast a hook, and take up the first fish that comes up. When you have opened its mouth, you will find a stater coin. Take that, and give it to them for me and you."
---John on 2/8/11

That's strange, I thought the Bible said the tithe was 10% of one's increase in produce and livestock.
Lev 27:30 And all the tithe of the land, [whether] of the seed of the land, [or] of the fruit of the tree, [is] the LORD'S: [it is] holy unto the LORD.
Lev 27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, [even] of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.
I don't see anything about tithing money, maybe someone can direct me to a few verses.

Jesus went to the temple many times and gave his tithe becaues if he did not it would be a sin. God cannot sin. Also Jesus did pay the temple tax in one of the gospels when he entered it. The tithe is money and it is 10%, it is not time or something else it is money because you can not serve two masters God or money Matt 6 (sermon on the mound).
---Scott on 2/8/11

Jesus is God and owns all, not just a cursed tithe: and Jesus gave a blessed 100%, not a cursed tithe.
---Eloy on 2/8/11

If Melchesedek was seperate to Jesus and Jesus paid tithes to him (cant see how?)then we would all be redeemed under the ministry of Melchesedek (as He abides a priest forever)and would have no need of another High Preist...the fact that Jesus and Melchesedek are one,is a mystery concerning Israels deliverance in the last days and few seem to understand this revelation:"The Lord at your right hand will strike through kings in the day of His wrath"!
---richard on 2/8/11

No Christ never tithe. No where in the Bible does it states that He tithe.He was a carpender. Under the Old Testiment only those who own land and farmed where to tithe(the rich)Regular workers did not have to pay tithes. Plus only the Jews were to pay tithes,A Gentile could not give tithes to the jews. The tithe where not just for the the priest but for every one how was a Levi and and did Gods work, the poor, fatherless, and the widows were also given a portion of the tithe. A welfare system
---chad on 2/8/11

Yes... Jesus Christ paid his tithing to Melchesadik.... He was a rightious High Priest...
---Steve_D on 11/4/07

No. Jesus did not give 10% of anything, instead he gave it all, because that is God's requirement and Commandment.
---Eloy on 10/8/07

The word "tithe" is the same word as "firstfruits and is Jesus raised from the dead. The offering is the Lamb of God. It is all God's offering and all God's firstfruit. What are you doing with what is God's? It is the first thing. What is the first? The first commandment is love God with all your heart. That was under the law. Under grace, we love because he "first loved" us.
---Linda on 10/7/07

The "first fruit" of the Spirit is love. All the other fruit flow out of that first fruit. The first love is Jesus. The redeemed from among men are those who follow the Lamb wherever He goes and are the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. Here it calls a people a firstfruits. They are redeemed from among men, holding none of the doctrines or traditions of men and marrying none of their strange "children" (self (flesh)-produced ministries).
---Linda on 10/7/07

If the Bridegroom is a firstfruit, then so is the Bride. When Jesus is in His rightful place as first in your life, money will take a back seat and giving will be the fruit.

Did God define tithe as a tenth of your income? Or was the tithe something else?

Jesus more than tithed. He gave Himself.

Did He have income?

Ryan - You are spot on with your comment "where does it say that tithe is of money" --- it doesn't say it anywhere in God's Word. Good point you brought up.
---Helen_5378 on 9/3/06

Ministers should be more concerned about the people's souls rather than lining their purses and bank accounts. "But woe to you Ministers, because you all take tithes of the mint and the rue and every plant, and pass by the discernment and the love of God; these befits to do and them not to leave aside." Luke 11:42.

Abel loved his sheep, and wanted to give that to God, but Cain just gave some fruit of the ground which didn't mean much to himself. God accepted Abel's offering, but not Cain's. And the poor widow who gave 2 quarter pennies in the offering, this was everything that she had, but she wanted to give it to God, what a blessing. Take some thing, any thing, that you really love a lot and give it to God, by sharing your heart in this way, God is really blessed, and he will truly love and bless you back.
---Eloy on 9/3/06

Tithers, God Almighty the Creator owns everything, he does not need your money. If you want to give to God, give him your whole life: If you have a lot of money, give a lot; if a little, give a little; if you have none, then give none: Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, give to the poor and sacrifice yourself for others, visit the prisons and hospitals and the bed ridden. Be a friend to the friendless, a father to the fatherless, and a helper to the helpless. Do the works of Christ and be greatly blessed.
---Eloy on 9/3/06

I think it is interesting that the Old Testament said that people were robbers of God when they withheld paying tithes and offerings, but Jesus says in the New Testament that those you require the tithe are the real robbers of God who turn the Father's house of prayer into a den of robbers.
---Eloy on 9/3/06

No. He gave 100% to God.

Ryan, I dont know about the 10% thing, thats why I put a question mark. It is something that I heard preached one time. But I do know that Jesus gave his life for us.
---sue on 9/3/06

Sure He did, He turned 2 fish into Five thousand. He filled Peter's boat with fish. He gave and NEVER expected a return. Seriously, I don't know if Jesus tithed money, but remember when He told someone to go and get the coin and give it to the tax collectors? "Render to Caesar what is Caesar" and He made a coin and told them to give it to the tax collectors.
---Donna9759 on 9/3/06

SUE, thank you for your reply. Do you have a scriptural basis for your reply.? Where does scripture say tithe is of 'money' or 'time'?
---Ryan on 9/3/06

Jesus did whatever the law required.

I would say YES he did! Isn't 'tithe' to give 10% of your money, or your time? Jesus gave 100% because he gave His life.
---SUE on 9/2/06

No. He didn't need to because He gave everything. How could anyone who has given everything still need to tithe?
---john on 9/2/06

No: He gave Himself completely to do the Will of God!
