Is Jesus saying we have to pay tithe in Matthew 23:23?

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.”

Matthew 23:23

NKJV - 23 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.

Interesting! In my study of the tithe I came to the same conclusion as you! In my study, however, it came down to rightly dividing the Word. The bible is divided into the Old and the New Testament, but not exactly in the correct place, if you use the correct definition of "testament". You see, a "Testament" doesn't end until the "testator" dies! In this case, Jesus Christ is the testator, and as long as He was alive He was living under all the laws of the old testament. Therefore, it wasn't until His resurrection that the New Testament actually began! Now, I'm not saying that there is no reason to give, but it's no longer a law!
