Hebrews 7:5: KJV “And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law...”
The book of Hebrews yields a crystal-clear admonishment to Hebraic believers of Jesus Christ who were falling back into the practices of the Mosaic Law.
It is also one of the most pivotal passages written in the New Covenant, which uncovers the truth concerning the commandment for ancient Israel to pay tithes to the Levitical priesthood according to the law.
Hebrew 7:5 details to whom the mandated tithes had to be paid, why, and the qualifying character of the recipients. I welcome you to discover facts supporting the mandate of paying tithes was not written to believers of Jesus Christ of the New Testament.
