The Bible is a collection of texts considered to be authoritative or sacred in Christianity, although there are some differences in the books included in the canons of various Christian denominations or groups. Topics related to any Bible character or characters are appropriate for this category. These may include any of the Bible authors, or the prophets, kinds or priests who are named in the Bible record, as well as the people for whom the Tribes of Israel were named, or any other Old Testament character, from the time of Adam and Eve. Also appropriate for this category are New Testament characters, such as Mary and Joseph, the mother and stepfather of Jesus, the apostles or any of the named disciples, as well as other early Christian believers. Significant non-believers who are named in the Bible text, such as the secular rulers or others who may have acted in opposition to the work of the Church in the time of Jesus and his apostles, are also appropriate for this category. Wherever there are several sited devoted to any one or a specific group of Bible characters, a subcategory might be created. Separate categories exist within this directory for God the Father, Jesus the Son, the Holy Spirt, and Satan. Old Testament characters might include, but are not at all limited to, Cain and Abel, Abraham, David, Enoch, Esther, Isaiah, Jacob, Joseph, Joshua, Methuselah, Miriam, Moses, Noah, Ruth, Samuel, Saul, and Solomon. New Testament characters might include the brothers of Jesus, Anna, Apollos, Aquila, Barnabas, Caiaphas, Herod Antipas, John the Baptist, Joseph of Arimathea, Lazarus, Matthias, Nicodemus, Philemon, Pontius Pilate, Priscilla, Silas, Simeon, Stephen, Timothy, Titus, or Zechariah, to name a few. Topics referring to any group of Bible characters are also appropriate for this category.
