Added DiffLines:

* NobleBigot: Like many Jewish people, harbored prejudice against Gentiles. In the book of Acts, God calls him out on this and he helps Cornelius come to faith. Later on, while he is willing to speak with Gentiles on his own, he ignores them when Jewish Christians are around. Paul calls him out on this.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Scripturally she is mentioned as late as Acts chapter 1 being among those gathered for the baptism of the Holy Spirit and that's it. Catholic and Orthodox traditional teachings fill in the gaps, as noted above.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: He will/did die for your sins but if you ever happen to push His BerserkButton, may God help you...actually, He wouldn't.

** This might also triple as a HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Given as Josephus describes him as a tyrannical and antisemitic judge, whereas in the Bible he was reluctant to crucify Jesus whilst being egged on by Jews. Though, it's possible Josephus exaggerated a the accounts little bit, being a Jew himself, therefore it's hard to pinpoint the exact personality of the actual Pontius Pilate.

* OneSteveLimit: Averted in some manuscripts which give his full name as ''Jesus'' Barabbas, taking the irony even further. (In first century Palestan, if a Jewish man wasn't named Jesus, Jacob, or Judas, he probably had a brother with that name.)

Added DiffLines:

* OneSceneWonder: All we know about her is that she was a young peasant girl who was engaged to Joseph and (with her consent) experienced a MysticalPregnancy. Beyond that, she doesn't have much characterization in the Biblical text itself; most of the popular interpretations of her character and [[BeautyEqualsGoodness appearance]] came from [[WordOfDante various theologians in the Catholic Church]].

Added DiffLines:

* NiceJewishBoy: More recent scholarship on both sides of the Jewish/Christian divide has recognized that whatever else he may be, Jesus was definitely a Jew whose lifestyle and teachings were perfectly at home in Roman-era Judea. And of course, "nice" goes without saying.
