] An explanation of this phrase is that it must be the second oldest profession because it is mentioned in the Christian bible.:
Paul Reynolds, a writer with the "BBC", noted: "Rahab, of course, was engaged in the oldest profession."

Other writers write about other professions as the world's second oldest profession without stating why they should be considered the second oldest profession.cite news
