TITHING IN UGARIT AND THE PENTATEUCH – POSSIBLE IMPLICATIONS FOR AFRICA

Miracle Ajah

Abstract


The thesis of this paper is stating that a rigorous study and theological
interpretations of the different examples of tithing in Ugarit and the Pentateuch can
motivate a more reflected theological-ethical understanding and the practice of
tithing amongst believing communities in Africa. The tithe demanded that the people
serve their God at a significant cost to themselves. An appeal is made to the Church
in Africa to consider how to mobilize support for her projects through the application
of their theological-ethical understanding of tithing.
