Question:

Where did the"skins" come from that God used to cloth Adam and Eve? Genesis 3:20-21. Did this skin come from an animal? Wouldn't this action by God be considered the"first" sacrifice? Please clarify. Thank you.


Answer:

After God issued the punishments to Adam and Eve for their sin, he took animal skins and made tunics for the man and woman (Genesis 3:21). It would not be considered a sacrifice because it was God who collected the skin, not man. Nothing was offered up to God.

Wow! I like that, but what was the first sacrifice then?

We don't know what the first sacrifice was, but the first recorded sacrifices were those made by Cain and Abel in Genesis 4:3-5.
