** The popular phrase "God helps those who help themselves" is not found in the Bible. Nor was it said by BenjaminFranklin, the most common other source. Variants are found in [[OlderThanTheyThink the writings of Ancient Greek thinkers]] and it was first encountered in its modern phrasing in the work of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algernon_Sidney Algernon Sidney]], a British soldier, politician, and anti-Monarchist political theorist.

Added DiffLines:

* FountainOfExpies: Jesus. ThisWiki gives us the CrystalDragonJesus and MessianicArchetype tropes; if the authors have encountered Christianity, they can be assumed to be expys. Some of the most well-known, though, include [[StarWars Luke Skywalker and his father]], [[ChroniclesOfNarnia Aslan]], {{Superman}}, and [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Nagisa Kaworu]]. In RealLife, many individuals have claimed to be His reincarnation.

* AdaptationOverdosed: The Bible has been adapted hundreds of times, covering just about every medium there is, which can be expected, since it's the religious text for the world's largest religion. Among the most commonly adapted Bible stories are the stories of Noah, Moses and Jesus..



** Another common misquote concerns the Garden of Eden's "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil," often mislabeled as just the "Tree of Knowledge." Considering the original Heberew, it should really be translated as "Tree of ''Omniscence''."

** It's popularly assumed that the Roman soldier who pierced Jesus' side to confirm his death had his blindness cured when he touched his eyes with his blood-stained hands. This actually isn't anywhere in the Bible, but comes from a medieval bast-seller ''[[http://saints.sqpn.com/golden174.htm The Golden Legend]]''. And who would hire a blind soldier anyway?
