“Which Came First?”

Categories: DOCTRINE
So everyone has heard the question: which came first, the chicken or the egg?  People have always told me that the answer to that question depends on your religion.  So based on my christian belief, which came first?  The chicken or the egg?

Sincerely,
Feeling Scrambled

Dear Feeling Scrambled,

Genesis chapter one answers your question.  God made all the birds of the air, including the chickens, on day five (Gen 1:20-23).  When God created the creatures of the earth, they were fully-formed and ready for Adam to name them (Gen 2:19).  These adult animals were then able to begin reproducing.  So – the chicken came first… and then the egg.
