* WereStillRelevantDammit:[[invoked]] At the beginning of the episode, Ned learns that Jimbo is uninterested in the bible study due to not having modern technology, so he does a half-assed attempt to pander to him ("Mouse pad! Double click! Skype, Skype!"). Once he has gained Jimbo's attention, Ned continues the study as if he didn't resort to this.

* NationalStereotypes: Israel is mostly shown as a country full of Jewish people. Jakob the tour guide is portrayed as being pushy, arrogant and into haggling. He also references a lot of Jewish products like falafels. He and Dorit are both military skilled. Only near the end we see some native Christians and Muslims. Specific references to Israel are Masada, Mount Zion, King David's Tomb, the Armenian quarter, the Wailing Wall, the Israeli combat sport Krav Maga, the Ark of the Convenant, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Dome of the Rock.
