Is Tithing Pre-Gospel?

Yes according to Scott McKnight at Jesus Creed. Quoting from Rodney Reeves book Spirituality According To Paul: Imitating The Apostle of Christ McKnight says Reeves would say the apostle Paul believed (and practiced) neither the tithe nor charity. Why? Because of one simple word: grace. Grace revolutionizes us from those who tithe and give charity to people who pass the grace.

IVP very kindly sent me a review copy of Reeves book. It has now gone to the top of my reading pile!!
