Hmmm, but it should be farming (herding with the cropping), metal working then the prostitiution. But if you add God the the first would be God as a teacher; teaching Adam; then surgery with Adam ribs. All in Genesis

You know, I enjoy this trivia. It makes me think deeper

Hey Jess, can you highlight the answers in a different color so it can stand out?

LOL.... I totally agree with you!
At first I thought of farming ...... But because of their limit of tools since it is second (metal working ), which they would realize after planting they would need..... I thought gardening would be a smaller version of the farming and much easier!!

Yes, of course they had to harvest after the planting, so metal working would definitely have to be second profession which would make sense!!!

Well what does the bible say.. ???

God made skins for them ... ! TAILOR ?

Adam was placed in the garden to take care of it..Gardner

Adam named all the animals (according to their personality)

Adam taught Eve - teacher

the worlds oldest profession was a farmer . Cains gift was not accepted because the earth was cursed !!

Cain killed Abel over jealousy. Abel was a hunter.

Prostitution was no where in the very beginging

I would have to say.. CREATOR !!

World's oldest profession ? Satan LIED to Eve.. (liar)

Salesman for a pyramid scheme comes close too, because Satan sold the lie to Eve..Then she sold it to Adam and it is still being sold..

Adam and his kids were walking past the garden one day and his kids asked: Isn't that where you used to live, dad?

Adam replied with a sigh, Yes, till your mother ate us out of house and home.

The first and oldest profession is Architect/ Designer because God said let there Light, let there be an expanse between the waters, let there be land....

God gave that one to me. I could not have thought of that on my own, believe me
