Ye Are Dull of Hearing
by Ronald W Robey
 
Hebrews 5:11 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.
 
The apostles would not have spoken contrary to what we are told prior to Hebrews 5:11.
 
Before Hebrews 5:11, we are told that God’s tithe is agricultural…not monetary. (Lev. 27:30-33)
 
Before Hebrews 5:11, we are told that God’s tithe is to be given to the bloodline descendants of the biblical patriarch Levi. (Num. 18:21-26)
 
Before Hebrews 5:11, we are told that God’s tithe is only to be observed in the land of Canaan. (Deut. 12:10-11)
 
Before Hebrews 5:11, we are told that God’s tithe command was given to the children of Israel. (Lev. 27:34)
 
Before Hebrews 5:11, we are told that the commands given to Israel were given to no other nation. (Psalms 147:19-20)
 
Before Hebrews 5:11, we are told that the Mosaic Law is not to be imposed upon Gentile Believers. (Acts 15:24-29; 21:23-25)
 
Before Hebrews 5:11, we find absolutely no command, nor instruction, for anyone to give a tenth of their monetary income to the House of God.
 
Perhaps the reason that the apostles struggled in the mention of some things is because they would be hard to be understood. It is evident that many are dull of hearing and that dullness makes it hard to be uttered what God and the apostles wanted to tell the Hebrews.
