The Origin of Tithing In the first part of this article on tithing it was established that Israel’s tithe was over 22%, and the people were to take care of the Levites. The Levites then tithed by bringing the 10% into the storehouse. This is the biblical Tithe.
The first striking fact concerning tithing is that the Scripture has remarkably little to say about it prior to the Book of Leviticus written in the time of Moses.

Second, the tithes required by the Israelites were a part of the Mosaic Law. Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet. search Search the Wayback Machine.
