Firstfruits vs. Tithes

We’ve heard teachings on the importance of tithing and offerings, but do we understand the difference between them? Are all offerings the same? Is the firstfruit offering the same as the tithe? Does it matter if we bring a firstfruit offering or a tithe if we are no longer under the law? What does the Bible say about tithing and firstfruits? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he answers these questions in his video, Firstfruits vs. Tithes.

Firstfruits vs. Tithes


15 You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread. As I commanded you, you shall eat unleavened bread for seven days at the appointed time in the month of Abib, for in it you came out of Egypt. None shall appear before me empty-handed. 16 You shall keep the Feast of Harvest, of the firstfruits of your labor, of what you sow in the field. You shall keep the Feast of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in from the field the fruit of your labor.
17 Three times in the year shall all your males appear before the Lord God. 18 You shall not offer the blood of my sacrifice with anything leavened, or let the fat of my feast remain until the morning. 19 The best of the firstfruits of your ground you shall bring into the house of the Lord your God. You shall not boil a young goat in its mother’s milk.

Exodus 23:15-19


30 Every tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the trees, is the Lord’s; it is holy to the Lord. 31 If a man wishes to redeem some of his tithe, he shall add a fifth to it. 32 And every tithe of herds and flocks, every tenth animal of all that pass under the herdsman’s staff, shall be holy to the Lord. 33 One shall not differentiate between good or bad, neither shall he make a substitute for it; and if he does substitute for it, then both it and the substitute shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.

Leviticus 27:30-33
