Most sermons mention Abraham and Melchizedek from Genesis 14, but not from Hebrews 7. Also, neither Moses, nor Jesus, nor any inspired Bible writer outside of Genesis 14 ever used Abraham as an example of Hebrew or Christian tithing. Genesis 14 shows how Abraham rejected works-riches in favor of faith-riches offered in chapters 12-13 and 15-17. In fact, the only mention of tithing after Calvary is that of Abraham in Hebrews 7. And Hebrews 7 concludes that ALL ordinances relating to the Levitical priesthood have been abolished.
