What we need to do is look at what exactly transpired with Abraham to see if this is the origin of the tithe as some of the prosperity seed-faith teachers claim.But to make my point a little clearer on how New Covenant giving differs from Old Testament tithing, I thought it would be helpful to look at Jesus’ teaching. First, we’ll look at what Jesus taught about tithing. For you tithe mint, dill, and cumin, and have left undone the weightier matters of the law: justice, mercy, and faith.Then, we’ll look at his other teaching on giving in general. But you ought to have done these, and not to have left the other undone.In Genesis 14 we have the first reference to tithing and this pre-dates the Mosaic Law.This was a unique incident and relates to a special person at a certain time.
