Descendants of Levi, third son of Jacob by Leah. (Ge 29:32-34)
Book of Numbers. 14Thus shalt thou separate the Levites from among the children of Israel: and the Levites shall be mine. 15 And after that shall the Levites go in to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation: and thou shalt cleanse them, and offer them for an offering.The Levites were choses because God required them to look after the religious artifacts which were used by the priests, particularly the tabernacle.
The Levites were supported in terms of sustenance (i.e. food) by the other Israelite tribes as they had no land to farm. They ate the sacrificial offerings to God that weren't intended to be burned as in a second way, God supported the Levites as his offerings were gifts to support them. The Levites were priests, and carried out the ceremonies at the temples, and kept themselves sacred, and were thus able to eat the food worthy of God.
Levites are the members of the tribe of Levi, the descendants of Jacob's son of the same name. A few familiar Levites from the Bible were Amram, his children Moses, Aaron, and Miriam, and their cousin Korach. Priests are the Levites descended from Aaron, the brother of Moses. Self-identity as Priests and Levites is known to significant numbers of Jews even today, and genetic markers have also been positively identified. The familiar name "Cohen" is the biblical Hebrew word for 'priest', and is often carried by a Jew of priestly descent.
In Numbers Chapter 1 from verses 50 But thou shalt appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of testimony, and over all the vessels thereof, and over all things that belong to it: they shall bear the tabernacle, and all the vessels thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle. 51 And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death. 52 And the children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man by his own camp, and every man by his own standard, throughout their hosts. 53 But the Levites shall pitch round about the tabernacle of testimony, that there be no wrath upon the congregation of the children of Israel: and the Levites shall keep the charge of the tabernacle of testimony. The Levites held the Levitical or Aaronic Priesthood, it will be their responsibility to offer up sacrafices to the Lord when He comes again. I am not sure if it was the Levites who built the tabernacle.
The Levites were one of the tribes of Israel. Israel's priests were chosen from this tribe. They are referred to as the Levitical priests. Israel was a theocracy which means its government was run by its religious leaders (Levites/Levitcal priests).Under the Mosaic Law (Law of Moses) the other eleven tribes were commanded to pay tithes to the Levites. In turn, the Levitical priests were responsible for offering the tithes to the Lord as a form of ceremonial/religious worship.Your Tithe ExpertTheTithingHoax.com
