Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: When Laban confronts him and accuses him of stealing his household idols, Jacob says (without knowing who did it) that whoever stole them will die. Not too long after that, Rachel dies in childbirth with Benjamin. Traditional interpretations attribute this to Jacob unknowingly cursing her for taking the idols (probably for her own use, which is also considered worthy of punishment). The fact that she dies in childbirth is attributed to her hiding the {{MacGuffin}}s in her menstruation couch.

* CoincidentalBroadcast: Abraham's messenger prays for a girl to come out who meets the criteria for a worthy wife: physically attractive, a member of the right family, virginal, kind, hard-working, and willing to accept that she'll have to migrate to the other side of the Fertile Crescent. Rebekah comes out mere moments later...and she meets ''exactly'' that description.


Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousGender: While modern audiences remember it as a male character (and possibly Satan), a surprising amount of artists had portrayed it as a bizarre, half-snake half-''woman'' entity, with a humanoid torso with female breasts and everything. Some people interpret this as a reference to Lilith, who in some versions of Genesis was Adam's first wife but fled ([[ValuesDissonance and in some versions was punished]]) because she didn't like the idea of being subservient to Adam. And this is disregarding the interpretation that the serpent wasn't even a ''literal'' serpent but instead an allegory for a difficult decision.

* MsFanservice / MrFanservice: Even during the most prudish epochs of western history, nobody could deny that the nudity of Adam and Eve was an important plot point in the bible. This always gave artists an excuse to paint a couple each wearing only a single fig-leaf and still claim that it's purely religious art not meant to be titillating in any way.
* [[InnocentFanserviceGirl Innocent Fanservice Couple]]: Until they eat the fruit.
