Stewardship study: Appendix

This lesson is part of a four-week study on stewardship.

Appendix: Tithe

The tithe was an element of the Jewish Law, never reiterated for the church.

Lev 27:30; Num 18:21

What was the purpose of the tithe?

Does the modern church have a similar need?

Does this need require one-tenth of our income?

missionaries vs. local pastors

Is this need best met by giving to the local church?

Dt 14:28-29

What was another purpose of the tithe?

Does the modern church have a similar need?

Does this need require one-tenth of our income?

Is this need best met by giving to the local church?

Ex 36:2-7

How was a freewill offering different from a tithe?

Did bringing a freewill offering remove the obligation to tithe?

Lev 19:9-10

Could this be considered a kind of offering?

What purpose did it serve?

How would this apply today?

Mal 3:8-12

Who is God speaking to?

What does he promise?

How does this passage apply to the church?

Is the teaching that every Christian should give 10 percent of their income to the church consistent with Scripture? (2 Cor 9:7)
