Tithing is included as a portion of a Christian's obligation to the Church by most Christian groups of today. A considerable amount of material has been written on the subject. These materials vary in approach and interpretation. It was the author's purpose to find the Biblical basis and teaching for tithing, both in the Old and New Testaments.

The repeated references to tithing in the Scripture mark it as a subject worthy of special study. The adverse view of some Christians, such as Dr. Charles Fuller and Joseph H. Cohn of the American Board of Missions to the Jews, toward some aspects of tithing warrants an investigation of the Biblical teaching.

The author developed an increased interest in the subject through a term paper written on the same subject earlier in his seminary studies.
