* Surprisingly, for a story about a nun that hunts demons, the manga of ''ChronoCrusade'' doesn't do this once. However, Gonzo's anime adaption gleefully adds it back in, having both Joshua and Aion quote the Bible in an attempt to portray Aion as some sort of antichrist. [[spoiler:Aion even quotes the Bible as his FamousLastWords.]]

* [[Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron Ultron’s]] quite the fan of Biblical references, sometimes quoting the good book directly (“upon [[{{Unobtainium}} this rock,]] I shall build my church”) and sometimes alluding to it (when pressed on what will happen to the humans who refuse to “evolve” in the manner he’s aiming for, his response is simply “ask Noah”). Given his fixation on apocalypses, it’s perhaps appropriate.

* The ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode ''Our Mrs. Reynolds'' has a PlayedWith example since it's not a real Bible quote. Also, Mal is an atheist, so she may be relying on him to not know that it isn't. Mal was once devout, but he lost faith after the Independents lost the Battle of Serenity Valley. As for the Bible quote, it's possible different settlements have their own "expanded" Bibles.
-->'''Safron:''' I do know my bible, sir. "On the night of their betrothal, the wife shall open to the man, as the furrow to the plough, and he shall work in her, in and again, 'till she bring him to his fall, and rest him then upon the sweat of her breast."

** Another possible explanation is that Saffron was flat-out lying, as is the nature of her profession, to seduce Mal.
** Oddly enough, Shepherd Book, the ship's preacher, doesn't quote it much. He does allude to it in a rather amusing fashion while prepping for a rescue mission to save Mal.

* In ''HogwartsSchoolOfPrayerAndMiracles'', ''Fanfic/HogwartsSchoolOfPrayerAndMiracles'', characters actually cite Biblical verses in their dialogue.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/AChangedWorld'', Eleya quotes a Bajoran prophecy in response to a [[FishOutOfTemporalWater temporally displaced]] Bajoran criticizing her for working outside her ''[[FantasticCasteSystem D'jarra]]''.
-->'''Eleya:''' "The Cardassians were using the ''D'jarra'' to control us during the Occupation. Kai Opaka abolished it in the Year of Nine Sorrows so we'd fight ''them'' instead. And, oh by the way, that's all in the Ohalu Prophecies: 'the D'jarra will end with the coming of the grey warriors', Ohalu 57:12." ''(narrating)'' I normally find it annoying when people quote scripture at me but let's just say this isn't the first time I've heard this load of bull.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/ModestyBlaise'': Willie Garvin can find a quote from the Book of Psalms to suit any occasion. In this case it's explained in his backstory; he at one point spent three years incommunicado in a Jordanian prison and was only allowed religious literature, and the only Christian text anyone could be bothered to find was a copy of the Book of Psalms.

* The online flash series ''BrokenSaints'' uses religious symbolism and scripture extensively. (The BigBad has incorporated much of the Book of Revelations into his "Last Judgment" scenario for humanity.) This isn't surprising since the series has been somewhat influenced by apocalyptic pop culture works like ''Film/TheMatrix'' and ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''.

** Humorously defied at one point, where Tevye, speaking to God, begins to quote the Good Book out of habit, then has a moment when he realizes that God, of all people, would know what the Good Books says.

* President Bartlett on ''Series/TheWestWing'' is a devout Catholic (as is his actor, Martin Sheen) and occasionally whips out his thorough and [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment encyclopedic]] knowledge of the Bible as a walking SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome. For example, in one episode a Christian fundamentalist quotes the Bible, particularly laws-heavy Leviticus, to support her stance against homosexuality. Bartlett [[QuoteToQuoteCombat matches her quote for quote]] with yet more lines from Leviticus to show how outdated it is.
