When did the first sacrifice in Scripture take place? Lots of people think it happened in Genesis 3:20-21 when God gave “tunics of skin” to Adam and Eve before He kicked them out of the Garden of Eden.
The idea often taught from this is that from the very beginning, sin demands payment, sin demands sacrifice, sin demands death.
Well, I show you something quite a bit different in this Podcast Episode from Genesis 3:20-21.
The Text of Genesis 3:20-21
And Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living. Also for Adam and his wife the LORD God made tunics of skin, and clothed them.
In this discussion of Genesis 3:20-21 we look at:
- Why Adam named his wife Eve
- The meaning of “Eve”
- Why it is significant that God gave clothes to Adam and Eve
- Where the clothes came from
- Why there is no sacrifice or death in Genesis 3:21
