After several months diving deep into the Bible’s own expansion of the Ten Commandments, the text finally moves on to other topics. The Suzerain Vassal Treaty that is the book of Deuteronomy is once again brought into focus. This week with an exploration of how to give tribute and who to give your tribute to. But this idea of tribute is one that made sense in the ancient world of kings and subjects. In the New Testament, however, the topic takes an interesting shift. No longer is giving to God or others about a tribute that is compelled from subjects, but rather it takes on the case of giving out of love and generosity.
