Eve's temptation of Adam.

The Bible most commonly refers to collections of Judaic and Christian scripture.


  • Philippians 2:12 is quoted in Jim Henson's documentary Youth '68.
  • In episode 103 of The Muppet Show, Fozzie Bear tells the following joke to Hilda: "I knew a minister once, who was so religious, when he read the Bible, he wore stain glasses." Fozzie told the joke again 39 years later in a "Fozzie's Bear-ly Funny Fridays" video posted to YouTube and Facebook on June 5th, 2015.
  • While reading the script for John Denver & the Muppets: A Christmas Together, Kermit recites, "a Christmas message from all of us to all of you: peace on Earth, goodwill toward men." Piggy stops to object about the omission of women from the statement. Denver's defense is that they took it from the Bible. Piggy counters, "the Bible is filled with women. This one begat that one and that one begat the other one... from all the begating that went on, it's quite obvious there was a great deal of goodwill toward women."
  • After Captain Vegetable skips the cabbage and cucumber to slurp down a glass of milk in Sesame Street Episode 1858, he paraphrases "Matthew" chapter 4, verse 4: "After all, man cannot live by crunchy vegetables alone."
  • Amanda says her "cup runneth over" with love for this boat in a sketch with Ernie, quoting the King James translation of Psalm 23:5.
  • Doc says his invention that will encourage his garden to grow radishes the size of pumpkins in the Fraggle Rock episode "The Finger of Light" will be like the Garden of Eden.
  • The Sam Arrow Action Figure released by Palisades Toys in 2003 included a Bible as an accessory. The book opened up to a hollow space into which a secret buried treasure map could be hidden.
  • Later in the film, Long John Silver upbraids his crew for daring to desecrate "the Holy Scripture" by tearing a page from the Bible to give Silver the Black Spot.
  • The film's accompanying documentary references Genesis when explaining the beginning of the script's origins. A narrator ominously announces, "In the beginning of Muppet creation" while an on-screen title is displayed against the dark backdrop from the film in which only Rizzo and the islander pigs' eyes can be seen, referencing the second line on Genesis in which the world was in darkness.
  • In The Muppets episode "Hostile Makeover," Piggy, in a fit of rage, complains about having thin-tipped Sharpie markers. She angrily comments she needs them to sign autographs, not write the Bible on a grain of rice.
