* HoYay: Judas With Jesus. As far HoYay:
** David and Jonathan. When they meet, it's stated that their souls were knit together. Jonathan then gives David his robe, armor, and weapons. Later, Jonathan saves David from Saul. They have a final tragic meeting after Saul forbids them from seeing each other, complete with weeping and manly kissing. When Saul and Jonathan are killed in battle. David rends his clothes and mourns Jonathan, and has his people mourn him, too. David even says he loves Jonathan more than any women.
--->And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him
as canon goes ... well. Their kiss his own soul. (1 Samuel 18:1, [=KJV=])

--->40 And Jonathan gave his artillery unto his lad, and said unto him, Go, carry them to the city. 41 And as soon as the lad was gone, David arose out of a place toward the south, and fell on his face to the ground, and bowed himself three times: and they kissed one another, and wept one with another, until David exceeded. 42 And Jonathan said to David, Go in peace, forasmuch as we have sworn both of us in the name of the Lord, saying, The Lord be between me and thee, and between my seed and thy seed for ever. And he arose and departed: and Jonathan went into the city. (1 Samuel 20:40-42, [=KJV=]

---> 25 How are the mighty fallen in the midst of the battle! O Jonathan, thou wast slain in thine high places. 26 I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant hast thou been unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women. 27 How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished! (2 Samuel 1:25-27, [=KJV=]
** Ruth and Naomi. Ruth
is listed described as a TropeCodifier on KissOfDeath. clinging to Naomi with the same word used to describe Adam and Eve's relationship. Ruth's declaration of loyalty to Naomi is often used for wedding vows, and even though Ruth eventually marries Boaz, it's clear that the relationship between her and Naomi is still the most important to her.
--->16 And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: 17 Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me. (Ruth 1:16-17, [=KJV=]

** Samson is presented as a flawed figure who abuses his powers, gets screwed over for it, and ends up dying because there's nowhere else to go. Yet, many readers can't look over his RatedMForManly antics and celebrate him as a MemeticBadass who dies in a blaze of glory. He's almost like the [[GurrenLagann Kamina]] of the ancient world.
** More seriously, Christians who persecuted Jews from the middle ages and onward for "killing Jesus". [[WhatAnIdiot Yes, let's ignore the fact that Jesus '''was''' a Jew, shall we?]]

* CompleteMonster: Haman from the Book of Esther is an egomaniac who manipulated the king into attempting to genocide the Jews. Why? ''One'' Jew refused to bow to him!

to:

* CompleteMonster: Haman [[EvilChancellor Haman]] from the Book of Esther is an egomaniac who manipulated the king into attempting to genocide the Jews. Why? ''One'' Jew refused Literature/BookOfEsther. He was a {{treacherous advisor}} offended by [[EvilIsPetty one Jew's refusal to bow to him! him]], using this as justification for [[FinalSolution plotting the genocide of the Jewish people]]. Various Judaic traditions elaborate on this, noting [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Haman]] had a picture of an idol embroidered onto his robes so that he could force Jews bowing to him to violate the taboo against kneeling to idols. The very trees from which he hoped to build his gallows recoiled from his unclean presence, and unlike some Biblical antagonists, he's not an agent of divine retribution, just a self-important bastard who can't accept being disrespected. Even Haman's ''wife'' tells to his face that he has [[MoralEventHorizon gone over the line]], and that his obsession with killing the Jews would soon become self-destructive; he ignores her and goes ahead with his plans. His name has become a watchword for anti-Semitism and he is viewed in rabbinical tradition as an archetypal evil figure.

** Nimrod is amazingly popular in folklore (the Tower of Babel was apparently built on his orders and he tried to have Abraham killed) and pop culture (shares the name as a villain from TheXMen).

* BeamMeUpScotty: 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.
